Wie, local amateur struggle at U.S. Women's Open

Honolulu's Michelle Wie and local amateur Mariel Galdiano didn't fare well at today's opening round of the U.S. Women's Open played at the Sebonack Golf Club in Southhampton, N.Y.

Both players shot an 8-over-par 80 and are tied for 141st entering tomorrow's second round of the LPGA Tour's third major of the year. They trail first-round leader Ha-Neui Kim of South Korea by 14 shots after she shot a 6-under 66.

Wie started on the back nine and opened with an eight at the par-4 10th. She also had a three-hole stretch at Nos.14-16 where she went bogey, double bogey, bogey en route to a horrendous 45 on her opening nine.

The Punahou and Stanford graduate then bogeyed three of the first four holes on her back nine to go 11 over after 14 holes. She managed three birdies the rest of the way to finish her back nine at even-par 35.

As for Galdiano, who at 15 is the second-youngest player in this year's Open, she opened on the back nine with three bogeys over her first four holes en route to a 40. She had another 40 on her back nine that included one birdie at the par-5 eighth.

Wie has been a nonentity in pro golf since she entered it. No news here. She has gotten old but not better. Overhyped and overpaid gal.

Please do not write about Michelle any more. SHE IS A TOTAL LOSER AS A GOLFER. SHE WON FOR BANK ROLL ONLY. Writing about how she shot an 80 is like making fun of her cause she is suppose to be in the hunt. She will never live up to expectations the golf world had for her. Excuses will come out of her mouth. Like if all her puts dropp3ed she would be up there but whe forgets that if all the putts of the other golfers fell she would be still chasing 14 strokes. She should just take the sponsers money and run(quit).

I the words of Anika Sorenstam, "The talent we thought would be there, isn't". Wie's best years are behind her. She should have turned pro at 18 instead of going to college cause at that age, she was playing good. It didn't help that she wanted to play with the men which alienated her from the men and women golfers. I don't know who her coach is but he should be fired cause he's not helping her at all. Or she's just not listening. A score of 80 is not a professional, it's what amateurs can score easily.
