Honolulu's Michelle Wie continued her downward spiral today at the U.S. Women's Open, closing with an 8-over par 80 that left her tied for 35th at 10-over 298. She was tied for second after a second-round 66, but was 14 over par for the weekend.

South Korea's Na Yeon Choi closed with a 1-over 73 to win the LPGA Tour's top major event at 7-under 281. She beat countrywoman Amy Yang by four shots. Choi ralled after triple-bogeying the 10th to drop her lead to two. By the 17th, she held a five-shot advantage over Yang and was in control, even with a bogey at the last.

As for Wie, she began her day bogeying five of the first seven holes. After five straight pars, she tripled the par-3 13th, bogeyed the par-4 15th and birdied the closing hole, the only red number she had on her card.

Wie has had a disappointing year and has dropped to 40th in the world rankings as a result.
