Wie Commits to Evian Masters Womens British

RSS

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- It looks as though Michelle Wie will be playing at the birthplace of golf after all.
 
The 17-year-old Wie also accepted a sponsor exemption into next week's Evian Masters in France, her first tournament since she withdrew from the U.S. Women's Open in June because of a sore left wrist.
 
Once viewed as the future of women's golf, Wie was 17 over and on her way to another score in the 80s when she quit at Pine Needles. She has withdrawn from two of her last three tournaments, managing to complete only seven rounds this year with an average score of just under 78.
 
Wie has not broken par in competition since the final round of the Evian last year, a total of 23 rounds.
 
Wie, who's been trying to work through her struggles in central Florida, plans to enter the Women's British Open at St. Andrews on Aug. 2-5.
