Ochoa holes out for eagle at U.S. Women's Open - Wie struggles
This could be the week for the world No. 1’s first major breakthrough.
Like any U.S. Open, there are some high scores out there, but red numbers can be found. Ochoa, at 2-under and still on the course, is one back of Angela Park.
How about Amateur Mina Harigae? She went 41-31 to finish 1-over for the day…
Michelle Wie is duffing it all over the course (+8). More on her and Gulbis in a few…
Afternoon tee times include Sorenstam, 12-year-old Alexis Thompson, ‘05 champ Birdie Kim and Paula Creamer…

"Bubbles' bubble has burst!"
She shot a brilliant 82 in her penultimat round in the 2007.
She did, however, manage to score one stroke less than at least one other player, none other than Karrie Webb. That should give the Wie-wee's some cause for rationalizing.
Karrie has about 40 LPGA wins and a few more worldwide, so an unusually poor round can be expected occasionally, even from a proven winner.
What's Bubbles' excuse this time?
Will she WD or MC?
If her elocution, or rather lack thereof is any indication, perhaps scoring in the low 80's matches her IQ.
