Michelle Wie is off to a three stroke lead in the US Women’s Open, reports the News & Observer.
Wie shot a 2 under par 68 Friday for the second straight day, but she’s refusing to even talk about the possibility of winning the major.
“Sunday is a very, very long time, far away,” Wie said. “You really can’t think about Sunday, 18th hole, now. You have 36 holes to play.”
She is also picking her spots, playing conservatively most of the time, but not afraid to go for it when the moment calls for it.
“I went through a phase where I was too aggressive,” Wie said. “I went through a phase where I was maybe not aggressive enough. And I think I’ve learned from both situations. Hopefully, being a little bit older, I’m a little bit wiser, probably not the case, but hopefully that’s the case.”
How was Wie planning to spend her Friday night, and what’s with her weird posture on the putting green? You can read about that in the News & Observer.
