Honolulu's Michelle Wie continued her indifferent performance today at the J Golf Phoenix LPGA International with a 2-over 74 that left her in a tie for 61st, 15 shots behind fellow tour rookie Jiyai Shin of South Korea.

Shin, who already has four LPGA Tour wins, shot a stellar 66 today to go to 10 under four the tournament. First- and second-day leader In-Kyung Kim was tied for second with former world No. 1 Karrie Webb at 9 under.

Wie carded only one birdie against three bogeys as she continued to struggle with all phases of her game. Through 54 holes, the 19-year-old Punahou School graduate has hit only 20 fairways and 29 greens in regulation. She has also required 89 putts, a pedestrian total for a professional golfer.

She will finish her final round tomorrow in hopes of shaking off the rust in time for next week's Kraft Nabisco Championship, the first LPGA Tour major event of the season. This is Wie's first tournament since the season-opener at the SBS Open at Turtle Bay where she finished second to Angela Stanford.
