Danielle Kang told a group of reporters on June 3, “I really don’t have the answers now,” when asked if the tumor doctors found on her spine was benign.

A scary situation.

Despite the diagnosis, Kang fought her way through the U.S. Women’s Open last week. She made the cut, but eventually stumbled on Sunday and shot a final-round 79 and tied for 63rd with Jessica Korda and several others.

On Tuesday, Kang released a statement on social media saying she’d be taking some time away from the game to get back to 100 percent.

She’ll be out for at least four upcoming events.

The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational is scheduled for July 13-16, so Kang will be out a month, with her return coming at the Amundi Evian Championship, at the earliest.

The 29-year-old’s maiden victory on the LPGA came at the 2017 KPMG PGA. She’ll miss the women’s third major of the year.
