Michelle Wie finished up last year with a few almost wins on the LPGA tour as she settled in to her role as a student at Stanford University. Well this year she’s looking to keep that momentum going as she starts out on the LPGA tour in the first event of the year.
In the first event of the year in Thailand she battle the number one player in the world Yani Tseng. It truly came down to the final day of the event and Michelle Wie ended up coming in second place. A hard fought tournament but she just couldn’t keep pace with Tseng.
Next up was a tournament in Singapore, the HSBC Women’s Champions where the field was pretty even for the first two days with Karrie Webb and Chie Arimura the only ones pulling away. But the third and fourth days proved difficult for most of the field as Wie fell to 8 over and Karrie Webb eventually took the title.
Even with her last showing Michelle Wie is already playing strong and showing the LPGA that she can hang with the rest of the world. The youngster from Hawaii is all grown up and ready to make her splash.
