Michelle Wie apologizes for walking off green early
She got a little carried away.
Michelle Wie walked off the green after making a putt on the 16th hole of her fourball match Saturday with Jessica Korda against Europe's Caroline Masson and Caroline Hedwall. The problem was that Masson and Hedwall still hadn't putted yet. Wie and Korda ended up halving the hole and they lost the match 2 & 1 on the 17th. Wie later apologized on Twitter for the incident.
Feel absolutely horrible about running off the green on 16. Got caught up in the moment and was so tired that I forgot what was happening.— Michelle Wie (@themichellewie) August 18, 2013
But that is no excuse for my behavior. Truly sorry.— Michelle Wie (@themichellewie) August 18, 2013
Korda did indeed stay by the green to watch them finish out the hole.— Michelle Wie (@themichellewie) August 18, 2013
