England’s Alison Waters has been forced to withdraw from this week’s Windy City Open presented by Guggenheim Partners and Equitrust Life Insurance Company after aggravating a back injury last week.
The former World No.3 has struggled with a recurring back problem through the past few months as her ranking has dropped to No.13 and she will now focus on recovering for next month’s Allam British Open.
Nicolette Fernandes comes into the main draw as a result.
