It seems like the time off going to college hasn’t helped Michelle Wie regain her golfing mojo:
Michelle Wie finished the third round of the State Farm Classic alone in second on Saturday—then was disqualified for failing to immediately sign her scorecard a day earlier.
Wie was playing her best golf of the year, finishing off a 5-under 67 to get to 17 under for the tournament, one stroke back of Yani Tseng.
That’s when Wie was disqualified by LPGA officials, who said they’d learned during play Saturday from tournament volunteers about the 18-year-old’s mistake.
“I don’t know why or how it happened,” said Wie, who had been crying moments earlier. She took no questions before leaving the clubhouse at Panther Creek Country Club.
Sue Witters, the LPGA’s director of tournament competitions, disqualified Wie in a small office in an LPGA trailer at the golf course after asking her what had happened.
“She was like a little kid after you tell them there’s no Santa Claus,” Witters said. [Yahoo Sports]
You can read more about the legitimacy of Wie getting disqualified from OTB Sports, but I think she needs to get a witch doctor or some voodoo medicine to get whatever jinx she has on her removed. I almost feel sorry for her, but then I read things like this and I just can’t.
