Michelle Wie shot 9-over-par 73-80=153 at the Reno-Tahoe Open and will miss the cut by several strokes.
Wie's short game let her down on her final nine, punctuated by a quintuple-bogey 9 on the 8th hole. This is the ninth time that she's failed to make the cut in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event. That includes one MC in 2003 on the Nationwide Tour and a WD at the 2006 John Deere Classic. Expect to see her next at LPGA Tour Qualifying School unless she's offered and accepts another sponsor's exemption during the PGA Tour's Fall Series. Fri, Aug 1, 2008 05:07:00 PM

Michelle Wie didn't receive an invitation to the Sony Open in 2008 and will not play on the PGA Tour in 2008.

Wie has played in the last four Sony Opens, but played poorly last year when trying to compete with a wrist injury. A few weeks after the Sony Open, she broke her other wrist and never was able to fully recover the power in her game. Wie is a freshman at Stanford this year and is hoping to receive a sponsor's exemption in the two LPGA events that are held in Hawaii in February.

Michelle Wie reinjured her wrist and had to withdraw in the first round at the Ginn Tribute.

Wie injured both wrists early in the year and had not played since the Sony Open in January. She was, at the time of withdrawal, 14-over-par after 16 holes and in danger of shooting an 88 which would have banned her from the LPGA Tour for one year.

Michelle Wie shot a second-round 76 and at +14 missed the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii by 14 shots.

Wie, who hit only one fairway on Thursday, struggled again with the driver. She had 14 bogeys, two doubles, and only four birdies in the tournament. Wie appeared to be playing with an injured wrist, but refused to use the problem as an excuse. In a post-round interview Wie said she will now take some time off and is not prepared to state when and where she will next play.

Michelle Wie shot an 8-over 78 in the opening round of the Sony Open.

Wie had two double bogeys, six bogeys and two birdies in her opening round. She wore a wrist brace throughout the round because of an injury that she suffered while hitting a shot off a cart path before the start of the Sony Open.

Michelle Wie and her classmate Alex Ching won the skills contest at the Sony Open.

Wie and Ching beat four other teams of Pros and Hawaii juniors. The pro teams were headed up by Dean Wilson, Jerry Kelly, Davis Love and Parker McLachlin. A win is a nice way to get ready for the Sony Open. The news of the win hasn't reached the bookmakers which still have her at 3001 to 1 odds to win the Sony Open.

Michelle Wie fired a 9-over par 81 on Friday to badly miss the cut at the 84 LUMBER Classic.

She could finish dead last in the event and she should obviously not be used in fantasy golf leagues that don't include the LPGA Tour.

Michelle Wie shot a 5-over par 77 at the 84 LUMBER Classic on Thursday.

She's going to have to shoot the round of her life to make the cut on Friday, but if it's any consolation, she beat John Daly by a stroke in Round 1. Her putter failed her today, as she missed several makeable par and birdie putts throughout the day.

Michelle Wie has withdrawn from the John Deere Classic after suffering an illness during her second round on Friday.

She made the decision after speaking with her parents, but requested to say goodbye to her playing partners before leaving. She was actually carried into the medical trailer by several people. It appeared that she was very close to vomiting on national television during her last few holes and was in obvious pain and discomfort. She was 10 shots off the cut line at 8-over par and had just nine holes left to play before shutting it down.

Michelle Wie has been advised to seek medical attention which would possibly cause her to withdraw from the John Deere Classic. She's suffering from an illness on the course.

She is still trying to play while complaining of having trouble breathing, as well as being nauseous and sick to her stomach. She is refusing to shut it down at this point and will meet with doctors after the ninth hole. She's at even par for the day, but has almost no chance of making the cut.

Michelle Wie is suffering from an injury to her stomach and side and is playing all knock-down shots on Friday.

She appears to be in extreme pain and is talking to PGA officals between shots and sitting on her bag. It looks like there's a chance she could withdraw before finishing her round. She's currently even par for the day.

Michelle Wie struggled to a 6-over par 77 in Round 1 of the John Deere Classic.

Her putter was fine today, but her ball striking left something to be desired. Many thought she would make the cut this week, but it's looking highly unlikely after Thursday's disaster.

Michelle Wie failed to qualify for the U.S. Open, but she gave it a good run in Monday's qualifier.

After shooting a 2-under par 68 in the morning round, she shot a 3-over 75 in the afternoon that ended her shot at making history. She tied for 59th at 1-over par, 143, five shots short of having a chance for the 18th and final spot in the 153-player field. Her putting was her downfall, but don't be surprised to see her make a better run at getting in next year. "Obviously, I'm disappointed I didn't make it," she said. "I'm satisfied with the way I tried. I played my hardest out there."
