Wie withdraws, citing illness, during 2nd round
Michelle Wie did not return to Sebonack on a dreary Saturday morning to complete her second round at the U.S. Women’s Open.
Play was suspended late Friday evening because of fog, leaving Wie one hole to play. She withdrew before play resumed Saturday morning, citing illness.
Wie, whose first-round 80 included a quadruple-bogey on the 10th hole (her first), was 3 over through 17 holes on Friday. At 11 over for the tournament, she would not have made the cut.
This year marked the 10th Women’s Open start for Wie, 23. She also withdrew in 2007 and missed the cut in 2008 and 2010.
Candie Kung, who had three holes remaining in her second round, also has withdrawn. Kung was 11 over with three holes to play.
