Will Wie or won’t Wie?

So will the 3rd time be a charm for Michelle Wie in trying to make the cut at the Sony Open? The odds are against her, but I think she might do it this year, as long as the winds don’t blow as bad as they did last year. Then, I have to remind myself she’s only 16, and when’s the last time a 16-year-old (not to mention, a woman) has made a men’s pro cut? She’s come razor close three time before, though, and I think that experience will help her this week.

tee time: Chris Couch, Camilo Villegas, Michelle Wie 1:40 p.m. Thurs, 6:10 p.m. Friday

UPDATE: When I got home to watch ESPN coverage, the announcers were already saying kinds words about Michelle Wie to take some of the sting out of her 9-over 79. Bad round. The only thing I was right about was how tough it would be for Wie if the winds blew. They did, and so did her round. (TGC: Wie Blown Away at Sony) She’s second to last.

To keep things in perspective, though, about how difficult the course was playing. Wonderboys Sean O’Hair and Ryan Moore shot 5-over 75s. Major winners Shaun Micheel shot +6, and Todd Hamilton, a +7. Corey Pavin, +8.
