Wie survives cut At Lotte Mart


POSTED: Friday, April 17, 2009

Honolulu's Michelle Wie barely made the cut at the Lotte Mart Women's Open at the Sky Hill Jeju Country Club in South Korea.

The Stanford University sophomore shot a 3-over 75 in today's second round and landed on the cut line at 8-over 152 in 59th place in the LPGA event. Wie had trouble reading the greens because of nearby Mt. Halla, which apparently makes a seemingly flat surface tilt away from the mountain.

“;I got confused with Mt. Halla,”; Wie was quoted as saying in The Chosun Ilbo newspaper. “;I had experienced this before in the 2003 CJ Nine Bridges Classic, but it's really difficult because I have to putt differently.”;
