Wie West shot 81-74 at last week’s Kia Classic, her first start on tour since June 2019, because of injury and giving birth to her first child. She got off to a promising start in Rancho Mirage, making four birdies and two bogeys, and was just four off the 18-hole lead.

Having started on the back nine Thursday, Wie West birdied Nos. 1-3. On Friday, starting at the first hole, she made bogey on the same trio. The 31-year-old finished with seven bogeys and no birdies.

“Wasn’t a good day. You know, got a little mucky from the first hole. Was right up against a tree,” she said. “But I feel like I’ve had some really good moments and some really bad moments.

“So definitely a lot of positives to take from and definitely have my work cut out for me.”

She stood at 5 over par when she finished her round, with the projected cut at 2 over.
