Michelle Wie climbed back into contention at the Dubai Ladies Masters on Thursday, shooting a 5-under 67 to move within two shots of leader Sophie Gustafson with about half the field still on the course. The 22-year-old American, looking for her first win of the year, bounced back from an opening 73 in which shaky putting led to three bogeys. On Thursday, Wie had a bogey-free round and sank several key birdie putts, including a 30-footer on No. 12. She had five birdies overall, including four on the back nine for a total of 140. Gustafson was at 138 after shooting a 67.
