The latest Michelle Wie news-
EAST MOLINE, Ill. -- Michelle Wie accepted a sponsor's exemption Tuesday to play in the John Deere Classic for the third straight year, continuing her effort to make the cut in a men's event.Michelle needs to concentrate on women's golf. I still predict she won't ever be force in men's golf. Her playing with the men is a unneeded diversion, most likely based on marketing Michelle not on what would be best for her career.
Wie, who is to graduate from high school next week, has not made the cut in six starts on the PGA Tour. A year ago at the John Deere Classic, she opened with a 77 and withdrew in the middle of the second round with heat exhaustion.
The John Deere Classic will be played July 12-15 at TPC Deere Run.
Wie has not played since missing the cut by 14 shots at the Sony Open in January. She played that week with an injured right wrist and then injured her left wrist a short time later when she fell while running.
She is to play her first LPGA Tour event of the year next week at the Ginn Tribute in South Carolina.
Skepticism about Wie's scheduling increased late last year when she finished last in consecutive weeks on the European Tour and the PGA Tour and was next to last at the Casio World Open in Japan. She has failed to break 70 in her last 16 rounds, including two LPGA Tour events.
