BELMONT, Mich. (WOOD) – A second player has withdrawn from the Meijer LPGA Classic.

2014 British Open winner Mo Martin withdrew from the tournament Friday morning before the day even got started.

The announcement came less than 24 hours after fellow American Michelle Wie withdrew from the tournament on its first day.

Wie told 24 Hour News 8 she couldn’t continue to play due to an injury to her right hand.

The Meijer LPGA Classic is being held at Blythefield Country Club in Belmont. It’s the first time an LPGA event has been held in Michigan since 2000.
