After Car Crash Ai Miyazato Withdraws from LPGA Event

By Alpert Schreyer on March 6, 2013

The HSBC Women’s Champions is a professional golf tournament on the LPGA tour. Ai Miyazato won the tournament in 2010, but on February 26th, 2013 she withdrew from the Singapore tournament, citing whiplash suffered in a five-car crash while she and a group of players and caddies were driving to the airport. They had just finished participating in the final round of the Honda LPGA event in Thailand.

As reported by The Associated Press, former number one ranked Miyazato was still feeling the effects from the car crash—pain in her shoulder and in her neck. Her decision to withdraw came after only 15 minutes of attempting to swing the club. She plans to sit out the tournament as a precaution. She does not want to risk further injuring her neck and shoulder.

Two Others Suffered Whiplash in the Crash

Another professional golfer, Paula Creamer, was with the group involved in the crash. Although unable to play in the pro-am on Wednesday, she did hope to begin competing in the tournament on Thursday. She and her caddie suffered from whiplash during the crash. She said they would both be sore for several weeks to come. The golfers’ and caddie’s heads hit the headrests in the crash.

Whiplash involves neck strain or neck sprain. The neck injury is caused by a sudden jerking motion of the head—either forward or backward. Whiplash is often the result of a car crash.
