Can Michelle Wie make it through the LPGA qualifying round?

(This entry was originally posted in this blog on December 4, 2008 and the information is based on that time.)

In the ongoing LPGA qualifying tournament, everybody’s eyes are stuck on Michelle Wie. This nineteen year old golfer, who has all the potentials to become the next PGA superstar, failed to gain any trophies till date. She had a phenomenal rise but could hold her flight long enough. After the wrist injury in 2007, her condition grew worst. Now, she is competing in the ongoing LPGA Qualifying tournament and things are turning out pretty good for this young player.

On the first day, Wie finished within 69 shots. She played in the legends course which is considered to be tough. On the first day, female Japanese golfer, Shiho Oyama, took the lead with an impressive 64 strokes at the Champions course. Michelle was consistent in her performance but her putters remained her major weak point. Golf World reports:

Playing on the tougher Legends course at LPGA International, the 19-year-old from Hawaii kept it simple during a mild and breezy afternoon on a course where trouble lurks amid marshes and thick palmetto bushes. She hit only four drivers — none on the par 5s — and her only bogey came on a three-putt from 25 feet on the par-5 14th when she was fooled by the speed.

The second day was even better as she finished within 65 at the champions course. Michelle Wie and Shiho Oyama are now jointly leading the score board as they both scored 134 in the last two days. If Michelle Wie can make it to the top twenty, she would be on the way to start her next LPGA tour. Now, the million dollar question is: Can Michelle Wie pull it all together and ensure her place in the LPGA 2009?
