PINEHURST, N. Orlando Brown Jr. Ravens Jersey .C. -- In the midst of throwing away a four-shot lead, Michelle Wie never lost sight of the big picture at Pinehurst No. 2. The U.S. Womens Open rarely goes according to plan, and Saturday was no exception. Wie knows that from experience long ago, and she settled down with four important pars to wind up with a 54-hole share of the lead for the third time in her career. Wie was a teenager the other two times. Now at 24, she was one round away from capturing her first major. "Im just grateful for another opportunity," Wie said after salvaging a 2-over 72 to tie Amy Yang. "Tomorrow Im going to play as hard as I can and hope for the best." Yang, who earned a spot in the final group for the second time in three years, didnt make a par until the eighth hole in a wild round so typical of this day. Only a sloppy bogey on the final hole cost her the outright lead, though she was more than happy with a 68. They were at 2-under 208, the only players still under par. A pivotal moment for Wie came on the 12th hole. She reached 6 under for the tournament with back-to-back birdies at the turn. She made her first double bogey of the tournament with a tee shot she hooked into the pine trees on the 11th. Her next drive sailed well to the right and settled on a sandy path. Instead of punching under the trees and over the bunker to the green -- anything long is a tough up-and-down -- she pitched out to the fairway and made bogey. "U.S. Opens are tough," she said. "I feel like maybe on a different golf course, I would have taken that chance. You just dont want to be too greedy out here. Even though you make bogey, sometimes you just dont want to make a double out here. I felt like I made the right decision there." The USGA set the course up relative to what the men faced last Saturday in the U.S. Open when wire-to-wire winner Martin Kaymer had his only over-par round with a 72. It was short (6,270 yards) but tough because of the pin positions. That didnt stop Juli Inkster. The 53-year-old Hall of Famer, who has said her 35th appearance in the Womens Open will be her last, had a tournament-best 66 to get into contention. She will be in the penultimate group, four shots out of the lead, still dreaming of a third Open title that would make her by 10 years the oldest Womens Open winner. "You can think and you can dream all you want," Inkster said. "But the bottom line is youve got to come out and make the shots. And if Im tied for the lead coming up 18, then maybe Ill think about it. Ive got a long way to go. Im just going to enjoy the moment and hit a few balls and see what happens." Also remaining in the hunt was Lexi Thompson, who won the first LPGA major this year in a final-round duel with Wie, and pulled within one shot of Wie with a pair of birdies early in the round. It fell apart on two holes. Thompson missed the green to the left on No. 8 -- the worst spot at Pinehurst -- and her first chip fell down the slope, leading to double bogey. On the next hole, she went long over the green and chose to take relief she really didnt need from a white line marking the TV tower. Thompson went to the drop zone, and her ball rolled back into a divot. Worst yet, she still used her putter, and it hopped high out of the divot and had no chance to reach the green. She made another double bogey, then made three straight bogeys on the back nine. She birdied the final hole for a 74 that left over 3 over. Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., finished the third round in a tie for 18th place, while Sue Kim of Langley, B.C., tumbled to 56th. Na Yeon Choi had a 71 and was in the group with Inkster at 2-over 212 along with Stephanie Meadow (69) and 18-year-old amateur Minjee Lee of Australia (72). Another shot back were So Yeon Ryu, who played her final 10 holes in 3 under for a 70, and Karrie Webb, who went the final 12 holes without a bogey for a 70. "Michelle Wie has put a few of us back into the tournament," Webb said. "Two hours ago, I didnt think I had a shot. Im pretty happy about that." Wie hit 8-iron to 8 feet for birdie on the par-3 ninth, and then hit a beautiful lag from about 80 feet for at two-putt birdie on the par-5 10th to reach 6 under. One swing changed everything. The back tee on No. 11 was used for the first time all week, playing at 444 yards. Lucy Li, the 11-year-old who missed the cut as the Womens Opens youngest qualifier in history, walked the final 12 holes with the last group. "Man, that hole is like 10 times harder from there," she said. "Well, maybe not for them." Definitely for them based on their shots. Wie hit a snap-hook that rambled through the trees and left her no shot but to go sideways and slightly back. She hit her third in a greenside bunker, blasted out about 25 feet long and nearly off the green and made double bogey. "You cant be in the tree here," Wie said. "But I felt like I grinded out there." Thats what it usually takes in the U.S. Womens Open. Wie shot 82 in final round at Cherry Hills when she was 15. She missed a playoff at Newport by two shots a year later. She is back again, a 24-year-old former teen prodigy, 18 holes away and still a long way to go.

Prior to the game, sat down with veteran left-hander Mark Buehrle to follow up on his "true colours" comment from last week, his strange season, his future beyond baseball and whether he thinks the Blue Jays are close to being a legitimate contender in the American League East. Listen to the interview HERE! Below is the transcript: Mark lets start with a comment that you made after your last start. This is a club, obviously, that has struggled through most of August and part of September and you said its times like this when some players or groups can show their true colours. What did you mean by that? BUEHRLE: Well, I mean, it kind of says it in the wording. Its just every year when you kind of get to the end of the year and youre out of it you just kind of see how guys go about their business, to attitudes, just everything. Its kind of everything combined, the true colours come out. When everything is going good you can get away with whatever. You can come in late and no one says anything but whenever youre late and were losing, everything gets magnified and its just kind of how people react. Even when, sometimes when you might say something to a guy about, they go, hey theres a problem or this was brought to my attention, its kind of the way, some people say I dont give a crap, who cares whatever that person says. Its just their true colours come out at the end of the year whenever, at the end of the year when things arent going right. Is that worrying to you or is that just how things go and this is nothing unique to this particular team? BUEHRLE: I mean, I think it happens every year. There are people on teams on every year that you play that just, I dont even know the word to say but there are people that get like that whenever things arent going right. They just kind of have this attitude about them, showing up late, not really wanting to do anything. I dont know, its just kind of everything combined but it happens on every team when youre losing and everything. It happens. It aint just like its happened on this team. I think it happens every year. This team has been a team of extremes. Lengthy winning streaks, lengthy losing streaks, it seems like its been very rare this year where youve kind of ridden a small wave. There have always been peaks and valleys. Do you have any explanation for that? BUEHRLE: No. Obviously when things are going good its fun. Weve had a lot of injuries over the course of the year, which obviously every team does so you cant make an excuse but it seemed like a lot of times we didnt have our main lineup in there. We had pieces missing the whole time so when youre putting pieces in and trying to gel as a team with your starting lineups and going out there trying every day its hard to, I guess, gel together. But I cant pinpoint why we win six or seven and then go out there and look like we cant win a game for a week. Again, thats why we play 162 games over the course of the year because youre going to have winning streaks and losing streaks and whoever comes out on top obviously are the ones going to the playoffs. Weve watched your season but how would you describe it? BUEHRLE: Ups and downs. First two months were outstanding and then went into a little funk and like I said when I was 10-1, I said everything is going good for me. I mean, pitching well, defence is playing behind me, were scoring runs, bullpen holding the lead, I mean thats what you need to have a start like that. Then, obviously, it kind of came back to reality and we werent scoring runs, we werent playing defence, I wasnt pitching good. When I would pitch good we werent scoring. When I pitched bad we scored a ton of runs. It just, everything wasnt coming together like it was the first two months. I think about a month ago you had a pretty good start and you said afterward that you didnt want Alex or Gibby or any of your teammates doubting you through that rough stretch that you had kind of post-All-Star Break. Did you at any point begin to doubt yourself? BUEHRLE: I mean, I think you do whenever you struggle. I dont know if its doubt or just frustration. I mean when you struggle or have some bad games, I think its human nature just to think in the back of your mind, man, what the hecks going on? Why am I pitching like this? Like I said then Ive been through stretches where Ive been dog crap before and I came out of it. I mean there was one time when I think I was like 1-10 and I couldnt get out of like the third inning for like a month. In your mind youre like, man am I done? Do I need to go home and be done with basseball because I cant get guys out anymore and then it turned around, I turned around and won some games. Mark Andrews Ravens Jersey. Its just human nature to have that feeling. It was probably one of those things I said it kind of out of frustration and you know, in my mind, Im pitching like crap right now. I dont feel that way when everybody else struggles and I know they dont feel that way with me but its just something I said. Physically how have you felt this year? BUEHRLE: Felt great. Obviously there were some times when you go through a dead arm period. I mean, Ive said before, you dont really feel it but you just know when your balls not going where you want to and you dont feel as strong but overall if I can feel like this next year and the year after that then Ill take it. You dont seem to be a guy who wears much. Youre able to kind of let whatever go, good, bad, ugly, whatever the case may be. Is that just the way youve always been or have you learned enough over your extensive time in this game to just kind of deal with whatever comes? BUEHRLE: I think both. I think when I was younger, obviously you worry about it more when you lose. I mean, still, when I lose now its not like Im happy or Im content with it. I still get frustrated but I know in your mind just, hey, throw it out the window and get ready for your next start whether you win or lose. I think its helped being in the game longer to have that mentality and the attitude. I mean, Ive talked to some of these guys and they say, yeah but youre established and you know if you have a bad start youre not going to be getting sent down, where as some guys may have that in the back of their mind. I think its my personality but its also being in the league that long. Do you expect to pitch after this contract expires, which happens at the end of next year? BUEHRLE: Ive got to worry about next year and being healthy and going out and pitching for a full year and then after that Ive got to worry about being healthy and somebody wanting me so I dont know. Even if I had a decision in my mind right now like Im either 100-percent retiring or 100-percent coming back I wouldnt, Im not going to come out and say it because Im not going to deal with it all next year, you know hey, are you retiring, youre coming back, what are you looking for? Just, well go off in the sunset next year after the seasons over and well go home, sit down with my wife and see what we decide. So youre not looking for a retirement tour of any kind where you get gifts from each and every opponent? BUEHRLE: No, no, I think you know that. The whole reason Im not going to announce anything is because I dont want to have to deal with the media every time you go to a new city where theyre going to, that citys media is going to want to talk to you about retiring. Just as I came into the league, Im going to go out of the league. I came in as a quiet, young, non-prospect guy and Im going to go out playing. I dont want to go too far down this road because you still are a ballplayer but what are some of the things youd like to do beyond your time in the game? BUEHRLE: Pretty much be at home, be a dad. Get involved in kids sports, music, gymnastics, dance, I mean whatever the kids decide to do when they get older. I kind of want to be a part of their life. We miss a lot playing this game and just to go home and be at home. Hunt, be in wildlife, just do stuff that I havent done. I havent been home for a summer time in probably 25 years between college and playing ball all the time. Obviously once I signed to play pro so I havent really been at home for a summer time in that long. Go to like the Ozarks, go get a boat and pretty much have nothing to do and no time scheduled. Wherever and whenever I want to go I can do it. Last one for you, I promise, is this team close to being a true contender in the American League East? BUEHRLE: I mean Id like to say yeah but I kind of, the last two years Ive said I thought we had a chance to win and see where were at? I mean theyre going in the right direction but at the same time weve still got to go out there and play. They put a good team on but weve got to have guys stay healthy to go out there and compete but, again, I cant foresee the future. I was wrong the last two years so maybe I should say no, were not going to and then that might reverse the curse or something. I dont know. But those young pitchers, Stroman, Sanchez, Hutch, those guys impress you? BUEHRLE: Theyve got some young guys. I mean the whole trade deadline came up, I said its tough to trade a couple of these guys away. If theyre asking for these guys, this is your future right here. How are you going to trade it away? Thanks for this, Mark. BUEHRLE: Youre welcome.
