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.
