Wie Posts 65, In Second Place after Day Two
Well, well, well, Michelle Wie, it sure is nice to see you again.
The 18-year-old fired a seven-under 65 today at Sectional Qualifying School, finding herself in second place alone after the second day of play. This coupled with her first round 70 has Wie nine-under after two days, four backs of some girl named Sun-Ju Ahn, which sounds like something you'd say after eating some really hot salsa.
Anyway, all Wie has do is finish in the top-30 to move to the finals of Q-School, a position she is currently 11 shots ahead of.
This sure is a different lady than the one we've been criticizing the past year or so. It looks like Wie can play again, which is only good for an LPGA that has been dodging some negative criticism lately.
