2008 LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament: Michelle Wie earned her LPGA 2009 tour card

(This entry was originally posted in this blog on December 7, 2008 and the information is based on that time.)

Michelle Wie finally won her PGA tour card. The nineteen year old finished her final round with an unimpressive 74 strokes. Still, it is better than getting nothing. At least, now she can go to the LPGA.

The final round took place at the champions course. Wie’s nine out was very depressing. Looking at her performance, it felt like she would not make it. Wie shot three bogeys in the first three holes. The weather was cold and she made some poor putts. Wie’s swing coach, David Leadbetter, who was seeing her performance from the gallery, said that there were demons floating around there. Then the wind calmed down and Wie got back on track. She played methodically which seemed very boring. In her nine-in she made one bogey in hole 14. In the entire game, Wie shot only birdie in hole 17 par 3. At the end of the day, Wie tied with Lisa Storm scoring 348.

Stacy Lewis proved to be the legendary dark horse in the qualifying tournament. Till third round, Stacy struggled to stay in the top position. She shot her way up in the fourth round with an impressive 4 under par. In the final round, she went steady and finished the round with 3 under par. Over all, Stacy Lewis’ score was 342.
