Pettersen cited the reason for her withdrawal as an “aggravated disc” in her back causing pain that has not eased up to allow her to compete.
"It's so unfortunate that I can't compete this week," said Pettersen. "I dearly love this event and would do anything to play. At this point, I just need to be smart and not make a bad situation worse."
Pettersen is undergoing treatment in an effort to get back to competition as soon as possible.
