Her results in Hawaii were mixed.
KAPOLEI, Hawaii â€” After two encouraging rounds to start her year, Michelle Wie shot a 6-over 78 on Saturday in the final round of Fields Open to finish 20 strokes behind winner Paula Creamer.
â€œObviously Iâ€™m a little disappointed with todayâ€™s round,â€ said Wie, who opened with rounds of 69 and 73.
At 4-over 220, she tied for last among the 74 players who made the cut.
â€œFelt like I was a little rusty out there,â€ Wie said. â€œI just got to keep on playing.â€
The 18-year-old Wie, who started the round on No. 10 at 2 under, went double bogey-par-triple bogey to fall to 3 over heading into the turn. She rebounded a bit on the final nine, with two birdies and three bogeys, including one on the final hole.
The Stanford freshman shot a 69 on Thursday, breaking 70 for the first time since the Evian Ladies Masters in July 2006. She made the cut with two strokes to spare with a second round 73.
I’d say the jury is still out. Michelle’s results were all right the first two rounds. Houndog did however note that while Michelle shooting a first round 69, she only hit six fairways and nine greens in regulation.
Where does Michelle play next? I don’t know, but I did read she wasn’t invited to the Kraft Nabisco the LPGA’s first major. We may have to wait a while before getting chance to evaluate the state of Michelle Wie’s golf game.
