DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Lowcountry native Shelby Rogers has withdrawn from next month's Volvo Car Open on Daniel Island due to an injury.
Rogers suffered a muscle injury to her right arm during her loss at the Australian Open earlier this year and has not fully recovered yet.
She released a statement through the tournament saying "It has been a very tough year for me and it breaks my heart I will not be able to compete in my favorite tournament. I absolutely love these fans and the whole city has been supportive of me since the beginning of my career. As difficult as it is, I know this is the right choice in order for my body to heal and be ready to play again. I have so many great memories here and I am looking forward to coming back to play next year."
