Nelly Korda, the top-ranked golfer in the world, announced on Friday that she’s withdrawing from an upcoming Ladies European Tour event in Hemel Hempstead, England. She was bitten by a dog in Seattle last Saturday and needs time for treatment and recovery.

“I regret to announce that I must withdraw from next week’s Ladies European Tour tournament in London,” Korda wrote on Instagram. “On Saturday in Seattle, I was bitten by a dog and need time to receive treatment and recover fully.”

Korda apologized to the Ladies European Tour, sponsors, and her fans for missing the event. She expressed gratitude for their understanding and looks forward to returning to the course soon.

Earlier this year, Korda won her second major title at the 2024 Chevron Championship but missed the cut in recent tournaments, including the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and the U.S. Women’s Open.

The next major tournament, the Amundi Evian Championship, will take place from July 11 to 14 at Evian Resort Golf Club in Evian-les-Bains, France. Korda is also scheduled to compete in the Paris 2024 women’s golf tournament from August 7 to 10 at Le Golf National in Guyancourt, France, where she previously won gold at the Tokyo 2020 women’s tournament.
