Michelle Wie

U.S. golfer Michelle Wie has made her first cut in a professional men's tournament in the Asian Tour's SK Telecom Open.

After shooting a three-under-par 69 today, Wie finished her first two rounds at five-under 139 and is tied for 17th at the Sky 72 Golf Club course.

She's six strokes behind the co-leaders.

Speaking in Korean, Wie says she feels great and wants to play well tomorrow.

Wie is the second woman to make the cut at a men's tournament in South Korea.

LPGA star Se Ri Pak was the first, in 2003.

The SK Telecom Open is Wie's eighth start in a men's professional event.

She has also played in four PGA Tour events and has also competed on the Japan, Nationwide and Canadian tours, missing the 36-hole cut in all seven tournaments.
