Wie Misses Cut, Keeps Chin Up

Day 84 without playing golf

OK, let’s give Michelle Wie some credit.

After posting a 79 that tied her with John Cook for last place after the first round of the Sony Open, Wie licked her wounds and came back to fire a 68 on Friday, a round that included seven birdies.

Yeah, Wie missed the cut. Again. Yeah, maybe she should forget teeing it up with the men for now. (But I don’t think she will.)

Still, you can’t ignore her gutsy 68. Nice comeback. The competitive fires are definitely burning in Michelle. She believes in herself, which in the long run will matter more than anything others say about her.

Michelle Wie is like John Daly...she will always be a draw, no matter what she shoots.
