Wegmans LPGA Championship News Flash: Michelle Wie -4 through 11 Holes

Michelle Wie struggled in her 1st round yesterday at the Wegmans LPGA Championship, opening with a 76 that featured a double bogey on the par-5 11th, her 2nd hole, and 2 bogeys in her last 4 holes.  But she's -4 through her 1st 11 holes today and so far has the low round of the day going (defending champion Shanshan Feng played the front in a bogey-free 32).  Let's see if she can keep it going in a week that counts double for Solheim Cup team qualification and counts extra in the Rolex Rankings!

[Update 1 (10:55 am):  Aussie Sarah Jane Smith is getting into the act, as well:  she's -3 through 11 holes of bogey-free golf today and actually has an 18-hole bogey-free run going!]

[Update 2 (11:16 am):  More not-quite-live blogging on my twitter feed!]

[Update 3 (12:11 pm):  Gotta give a shout-out to Lydia Ko, who bogeyed 2 of her 1st 3 holes to drop to +7 on the week, but is now -3 today through 17 and only +2 overall!]

[Update 4 (12:29 pm):  Wie's 68 low round of day so far!  Back to E for the week!]
