Monday, July 21, 2008 (AP) -- Fresh off a disqualification on the LPGA Tour, Michelle Wie (wee) has decided to tee it up against the men, again. The 18-year-old Stanford student from Hawaii will participate
next week in the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open.

It will be her eighth time playing on the PGA Tour, and she has yet to make a cut. The only time Wie has made money playing against the men was on the Korean Tour, in 2006, at the SK Telcom Open.

Wie has no status on any tour and has only one sponsor's exemption left this year. She'll be playing her seventh and final LPGA Tour event of 2008 at the CN Canadian Women's Open in August.

The Reno-Tahoe Open starts July 31st. The Nevada tournament has one of the weakest fields on the PGA Tour due to the fact it's held opposite the World Golf Championship in Ohio.
