Wie shoots second-round 66 at U.S. Women's Open

By Star-Advertiser Staff


Honolulu's Michelle Wie briefly grabbed a share of the U.S. Women's Open lead today with a stellar 6-under 66 at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wis. Her 4-under 140 left her one shot off the pace with half the field still on the course.

Starting on the back nine, Wie birdied the first two holes, part of a 4-under 32 at the famed Championship Course. She made the turn with another birdie at the par-4 first, stumbled with a bogey at the par-5 second, then righted the ship with birdies at Nos. 4 and 6. She had seven birdies and only one bogey for her round. It was her best 18 holes of a disappointing 2012.

Wie is tied for second with fellow American Cristie Kerr (71—140). Sweden's Suzann Pettersen is the clubhouse leader at 5 under 139 after shooting a second-round 68.

Never cared for her parent's decision for starting her off on a pro career so young, however that's not says she hasn't a chance. Hope she can get her game together and win a few more tournaments, major ones.

For all the crap she got for turning pro early, she finished college, unlike many of the other pros. It was too tempting an offer to turn down. It was a different sort of career course, but she'll be prepared for more than just golf. I don't see Lexi Thompson or any of the other young pros finishing school. Good luck to Michelle, hopefully she'll fulfill her potential.

That decision is one of those things that you really won't know about until after you make it. There is no book to follow on what to do if you have a golf progidy which she clearly was. It was crititicized at the time, but looking at it tody, it looks like the right choice and her parents raised her well-- she got her degree at Stanford, has been ranked in the top 2 or 3 in the LPGA even while a full time student. Now she can turn her attention to a pro career with money already in the bank and a degree from a prestigous school.

I disagree with her decision to go pro, I love her decision to complete her college degree at Stanford. Hope she starts playing and practicing regularly. Doctorate can wait until she's past her golf playing prime!

... and she should crumble like a house of cards here soon. There are so many other female golfers out there more worthy of a report than our home-girl, who frankly, has never lived up to the hype.

She is local. If you want to read about mainland golfers, read mainland papers.
