Michelle Wie played well enough in the CME Globe Tour Championship to consider a million ways her great year can get even better.
On another blustery day, Carlota Ciganda of Spain had a five-under 67 to share the lead with Julieta Granada of Paraguay, who shot 70, in Naples, Fla. They were a stroke ahead of Morgan Pressel, who birdied all the par-five holes in her round of 66.
Wie had a 67 and emerged as a possibility to win the Race to CME Globe and collect the $1-million bonus. Wie was two shots off the lead and in prime position to capture the biggest payoff in women's golf.
Stacy Lewis struggled to a 74 and was six shots behind. Inbee Park was eight shots back after a 74.
Leader Michael Wright shot a second-round 68 for a 36-hole total of nine-under 135, two strokes ahead of fellow Australian Paul Spargo on a crowded leaderboard.
Scott, who was tied for 12th, has won the last two Australian Masters, also at Melbourne sand-belt courses — Royal Melbourne last year and Kingston Heath in 2012.

All three Americans made the cut — Kyle Stanley was two under after a 73, Boo Weekly (72) was even and Zac Blair (75) was one over.
Lee Janzen shot a four-under 68 at Pebble Beach for a two-stroke lead over Andrew Putnam after two rounds of the Callaway Pebble Beach Invitational.
Janzen, a two-time U.S. Open winner, had a bogey-free round. He is at 11-under 133.
PGA Tour rookie Tony Finau, who had a two-shot lead after an opening-round 63, had a 79 at Spyglass and is among seven players at two under.
