Michelle Wie’s purple dress wasn’t a good luck charm at U.S. Open (Picture)
Michelle Wie put together her best round of the year on Friday at the U.S. Open. The 22-year-old shot a 6-under 66 to put her in contention for the title, but a bad third round on Saturday coupled with an even worse showing on Sunday left her tied for 35th.
Wie entered the weekend at 4-under par, but she shot a 6-over 78 on Saturday and an 8-over 80 during Sunday’s final round to finish the tournament 10 over. Wie’s purple dress (seen above) created plenty of buzz among fans on Sunday, but it brought her no luck. Her horrific 80 sent her plummeting 22 spots on the leaderboard.
Hey, at least Wie did better than last year when she tied for 55th.
