Monday, February 14, 2011
ROCKVILLE, Md. – Michelle Wie failed to qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open.
Wie shot a 74 in the second round of qualifying Monday, and missed by a shot.
The 19-year-old from Hawaii was competing for 30 spots at Woodmont Country Club, where most LPGA players went the day after the McDonald’s LPGA Championship.
It will be the first major Wie has missed this year.
Wie has played in the U.S. Women’s Open every year since she was 13. She had to qualify last year and then missed the cut at Interlachen.
Also failing to qualify were Natalie Gulbis and 18-year-old rookie Vicky Hurst.
