OAKMONT, Pa. – Michelle Wie will be among the big names making an early exit when the cut is made at the conclusion of today’s rain-suspended second round at the U.S. Women’s Open.
Wie followed up her 82 with a 76.
The most revealing number, however, is the 69 putts she took in two rounds. That’s 12 more than Ai Miyazato took playing alonside her.
Asked about her performance, Wie, a Stanford senior-to-be, said: “Complete fail.”
Since tying for third as a 16-year-old at the 2006 U.S. Women’s Open, here’s Wie’s line in the championship: WD, MC, DNQ (Did not qualify), MC.
“I’ll just do everything I can to get over it,” Wie said. “We have one more major left. You learn as much as you can.”
Wie recorded seven top 10s in her first 11 majors. She hasn’t recorded a top in her last 10, since that T-3 at Newport Country Club in ’03.
