Wie is embarrassing

The already washed up Michelle Wie withdrew from the U.S. Women's Open on the 10th hole of the second round after aggravating a wrist injury that kept her out for four months earlier this year and has led to some unsightly golf since her return. Wie, who shot an 82 during the first round, said she woke up with a sore wrist and then "tweaked" it during her first nine holes in which she was 6 over par. After the eighth hole, things got worse and afterward Wie said the pain was "definitely enough to bring tears to my eyes. It was hard to do that for me, but it wasn't fun. It wasn't a great feeling." Wie was on her way to a 23rd consecutive round in which she did not break par.

I'd say that Wie is washed up, but you have to have been good once upon a time to qualify for that distinction. She has missed more cuts this year than my butcher stylist at Fantastic Sams. On the bright side, according to our age tracker, only 99 more days until Wie can start making some money again. Only instead of shooting eagles, she will be spreading them.
