Wie made two big pars and closed with two birdies for a second straight 2-under 68, giving her a four-shot lead among those who played early Friday. In the afternoon, even with a brief shower, the field at the U.S. Women’s Open was in full retreat.

Late in the afternoon, Wie was at 4-under 136 and the only player under par.”End of the day yesterday, I was thinking if I just did this again, that would be nice,” Wie said. “Finishing with two birdies is always great. It’s a grind out there. It’s not easy. Really grateful for the par putts that I made and some of the birdie putts that I made. I can’t complain. I’ll take it.”

Lucy Li’s historic week as the youngest qualifier in the Women’s Open didn’t last long. She opened with a double-bogey for the second straight day and wound up with another 78 to finish at 16-over par, well beyond the cut line…
