DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Honolulu’s Michelle Wie had five birdies — four on the back nine — with no bogeys on the way to a 5-under 67 in Thursday’s second round of the Dubai Ladies Masters, and was four shots behind the leader, 16-year-old Lexi Thompson.
Wie’s 140 total left her in a tie for sixth place.
“I made a couple more putts,” Wie said. “I have two more days to try and shoot some more low scores.”
Wie sank a 30-foot putt for birdie on the 12th hole, but missed a 12-footer on No. 18.
“A little frustrated after the last two holes, but I kept steady out there today,” she said. “I’m still in contention, and going to go out there tomorrow, shoot another low round.”
Thompson had six birdies en route to a bogey-free 66.
Sophie Gustafson (67) and Margherita Rigon (68) were tied for second at 138.
Overnight leader Lotta Wahlin carded a 74 that left her at 140.
