Michelle Wie almost made the cut again at a men’s pro tournament, but she suffered back to back bogeys coming in on the final 2 holes. That left her one above the cut line, having shot rounds of 73 and 75 at the Casio Open in Japan. (More here.) Don’t worry about Michelle, though, she did pick up $1 plus million in appearance money.

UPDATE: ESPN’s Eric Adelson has this excellent report from Japan. In it, he explains Michelle’s Achilles heel: her putting. In Japan, she three putted too often to make the cut. “Asking how good Wie would be if she putted like Tiger is like asking how good Shaq would be if he made his free throws.”

Growing up in Hawaii playing on bermuda greens has been a disadvantage for Wie. “Leadbetter says Wie may eventually live in Florida, in part so she can get more practice on different surfaces. Whatever the cause, she never looked comfortable on the slippery greens in Japan, and even short putts turned into white-knucklers.”
