LPGA's Maria Fassi says she 'discovered a tear' in her knee, now home after surgery

Maria Fassi is back home in Mexico recovering from surgery to repair a tear in her left knee. The former NCAA champ and Arkansas star shared the news on her Instagram account Wednesday evening.

“Gutted to share with you guys that after a few weeks of playing with pain on my left knee we discovered a tear,” Fassi wrote. “My team and I decided it was best to go ahead with a minor surgery and step away for a minute to make sure I give it the proper time to rehab and recover. I am out of surgery and the knee is doing great. I look forward to getting back out there with all of the girls soon!”

Fassi made her first cut of the season last week at the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open. After opening the tournament with her best round of the season, a 3-under 68, Fassi admitted that the pain in her knee was so bad that she probably shouldn’t be playing. She called it a “free week.”

“For me, it was just to try and go out there and have fun and do the best I could,” said Fassi, who ultimately tied for 50th. “That might be a new approach for the rest of the year.”
