Wie fires high number at LPGA Championship

One week ago, Michelle Wie pulled out of an LPGA event hosted by Annika Sorenstam as a result of "pain in her wrist." However, Wie played the next day in Maryland for some extra practice at this week's McDonald's LPGA Championship's home course. Wie's pullout drew fire from the queen of women's golf, Sorenstam herself.

Some felt the reasons for Wie's withdrawal go beyond her "injury." If Wie had parred the 17th and 18th holes of her round, she would have shot an 88. With an 88, she would no longer be eligible to take sponsor's exemptions on the LPGA Tour, so would end her efforts on that tour until she wins a LPGA Tour Card.

Wie's woes continued this week at the McDonald's LPGA Championship Presented by Coca-Cola. The teenager shot 83 in the third round, which left her five shots behind the rest of the field. There is a possibility that Wie will withdraw from the final round, as GolfChannel.com reports, "Wie's left wrist was clearly bothering her."
