OAKMONT, Pa. – On a truly rough day for the world’s No. 10-ranked golfer, Michelle Wie has shot an 11-over 82 to play herself out of contention after one round of the U.S. Women’s Open.
She couldn’t find the fairways, winding up in too many of Oakmont Country Club’s 208 bunkers. Once she finally reached Oakmont’s infamously treacherous greens, her game got even worse.
Wie landed in only four of 14 fairways off the tee and made a scant six greens in regulation during a frustrating round in which she had five bogeys and three double bogeys.
It was the 20-year-old Wie’s worst round since an 84 at the Evian Masters in 2007.
