Former world #1 Jiyai Shin has announced, through her agent, that she will miss at least one month due to back and right big toe injuries. She noticed the pain at the 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Open. Her condition has worsened since then, resulting in Shin being hospitalized Monday in Korea. Her doctor was quoted as saying Jiyai would need 3 weeks of treatment. Shin is an 8-time winner on the LPGA, including the 2008 Women’s British Open, and has 34 wins worldwide. Here’s hoping she gets proper diagnosis and treatment so that she can be pain-free as soon as possible.
