Spinal tumor will keep world number 12 Danielle Kang off the LPGA Tour indefinitely

American Danielle Kang, ranked 12th in the world, will be sidelined indefinitely from the LPGA Tour due to a spinal tumor. The 29-year-old US Solheim Cup veteran announced on social media on Tuesday evening that she would be stepping down to focus on her health.

“I wanted to get some answers before it became public and unfortunately in many ways I learned that some things don’t go as planned,” Kang said. Kang said she will not be competing in this week’s ShopRite LPGA Classic and will not play again until next month’s Evian Championship in France at the earliest.

That means missing out on this month’s PGA Women’s Championship, an event she won in 2017 for her only major crown. “I want to compete, not just participate,” Kang said. “I’m going to take a little longer to get back to 100 percent.”

Kang won the most recent of his six career titles at this year’s LPGA Tournament of Champions.
