Wie, 30, and West, 32, announced the pregnancy in January. They married in August. West is the son of NBA legend Jerry West and is an executive for the Golden State Warriors.

Wie began an extended break from the LPGA Tour in June 2019 and hasn't played since. The LPGA Tour was suspended in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Wie, a Honolulu native, has ranked as high as 3rd in the Rolex World Golf Rankings but now ranks No. 415.

The LPGA Tour is scheduled to resume at the Drive On Championship from July 31 to Aug. 2 in Toledo, Ohio.

Wie said in May that she could return to competitive golf at the 2020 U.S. Open, which has been postponed until December due to the pandemic.
