JAMIE FARR OWENS CORNING CLASSIC
Paula Creamer shot a 6-under-par 65 to build a six-stroke lead through two rounds of the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic.
Wie survives cut, trails by 17
The good news for Michelle Wie is she made the cut at the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic. The bad news is she trails second-round leader Paula Creamer by 17 shots.
So it goes for the former Honolulu resident, who only has one more sponsor's exemption left on the LPGA Tour. If she makes enough money and finishes among the top 90 money winners, she automatically earns her card for 2009.
If not, the Stanford freshman's only way to play with the women full-time is to go to Q-school to earn her card. In yesterday's ho-hum round, Wie had two birdies and three bogeys to shoot a two-day total of even-par 142. She is tied for 62nd.
Fellow local golfers Dean Wilson and Parker McLachlin had better performances at this week's PGA Tour stop. Wilson shot a 4-under 67 to find himself tied for 12th at 7-under 141 in a tournament Wie played in several times.
Like Wie, McLachlin landed on the cut number by shooting a 4-under 67. He is 3 under for the tournament and is tied for 55th entering the weekend.
Wilson carded six birdies and two bogeys, contining his strong play over the past few weeks. The Castle High product finished tied for third at last week's AT&T National.
Honolulu's McLachlin had six birdies and two bogeys as well.
