Michelle Wie unlikely to play in US Amateur

Playing in the Women's British Open might keep Michelle Wie from competing in the U.S. Women's Amateur.

The U.S. Women's Amateur starts Aug. 1 in Atlanta, the day after the final round of the Women's British Open at Royal Birkdale in England.

Wie is having trouble finding a flight that would get her to Atlanta in time for the first of two rounds of stroke play at Ansley Golf Club.

``It's kind of tough, we're trying to look for tickets but we arrive on the day the tournament starts,'' Wie said Wednesday after her practice round for the LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock. ``We arrive in the afternoon.

``We're still thinking about it, but the chances are very, very low.''

Wie has until her Monday tee time at the Women's Amateur to withdraw, according to the U.S. Golf Association.

Wie received exemptions into the LPGA Championship and Women's British Open. She also has qualified for the U.S. Women's Open later this month, having tied for 13th last year as a 14-year-old.

In the first major of the year, the Kraft Nabisco Championship, Wie tied for 14th.
