Near miss at history

Michelle Wie reacts after narrowly missing a putt on the 8th green during the second round of the PGA's John Deere Classic, Silvis, IL. Wie needed to birdie the hole in order to keep her chances alive (with one hole to play) of being the first woman to make the cut in a PGA tour event since Babe Zaharias did it in 1945. Wie attracted huge crowds and was in position to make the cut until she faded in the final few holes.
