Wie Struggles, Shoots 81

Teenage golf sensation Michelle Wie was not able to find much success at the 84 Lumber Classic on either day. Wie's game was not able to keep up with Mystic Rock's layout which is well over 7,500 yards. Starting with a 5 over 77, she followed with an 81 to find herself in dead last place following a poor tournament a week before at the OMEGA Masters in Switzerland. The biggest issue for Wie was her inability to hit GIR, and having difficulty putting with 35 putts and 33 putts on Thursday and Friday respectively. Wie was only able to find one birdie over the two days of play. Despite poor play, Wie still attracted the largest crowds of any player. Even though she has struggled in the last two weeks, Wie was optimistic after the round saying that she is prepared to hit the gym and continue working. It is hard to say that Wie's appearance in tournament is a bad thing as some have argued, Wie, like Tiger Woods, is an instant ticket seller. In all honesty, Wie did not have much of a chance at the present of playing well on such a hard golf course. Rounds are still continuing as Ben Curtis and Ryan Moore share the lead with several players till out on the course.
