The Wie report: late bogey train derails Wie’s historic bid

Michelle Wie was -2 after the first 18 holes, after chipping in for birdie on the 18th hole. She had 2 birdies, and no bogeys after her first 18.

Starting her second 18 holes on the back nine, Michelle suffered her first bogey, but made that up with a birdie on her 26th hole. After 30 holes, Michelle was still at -2. The projection on CNN-SI was that she needed a -3 to qualify. Just one more birdie needed with 6 holes left to play, including a par 5. Could this be really happening?

Then, just when I started getting nervous and thinking that history was about to happen, Michelle suffered 3 consecutive bogeys to bring her down to +1. Ouch, that really hurt. Only a par-5 and a par-4 left–Wie will need a miracle now.

No such luck. Just parred the par-5 35th hole. Unless she gets a hole-in-one on the 417 yard par 4 36th hole, it’s all over. I’m going home to console myself with a bowl of ice cream. Sorry, Wie fans.
