Wie Four Matches from Masters Invitation

Michelle Wie recorded a dominating 6-and-5 victory in her second-round match at the U.S. Amateur Public Links on Thursday morning. The 15-year-old was 3-under for the day. The win over C.D. Hockersmith of Richmond, Ind., leaves the Hawaiian sensation four wins away from winning the event. A victory would likely come with an invitation to play at the 2006 Masters.

Her afternoon match against Jim Renner of Plainville, Mass., is scheduled to begin at 1:20 p.m. (CDT) today at Shaker Run Golf Club in Lebanon, Ohio.
