Wie misses cut at Canadian Open

Honolulu's Michelle Wie missed the cut at this week's CN Canadian Open despite shooting a 2-under 69 in yesterday's second round of the LPGA event.

Wie tied for 90th, two shots removed from the cut of 1-over 143. It was the first missed cut for Wie this year.

The Punahou School graduate carded one bogey and three birdies for her round, including one at the par-5 18th. Wie hit 10 of 14 fairways and 11 greens in regulation, averaging 280 yards off the tee. She needed only 27 putts.
