Wie and Shin tied after round three of Canadian Open

Hawaii’s Michelle Wie

Michelle Wie shot an even par 72 to put herself into a tie with Jiyai Shin going into the final round of the CN Canadian Women’s Open golf championship in Winnipeg, Canada.

Wie held a three shot lead going into today’s third round but had problems on the putting green to lose her advantage while Shin fired a 69 to erase the gap.  Both women finished the third round at 10 under par with a 206.

Wie, only 20 years old and a Hawaii native, is the darling of professional golf and has had an enormous following since breaking into the professional circuit.

Shin and Wie will be paired in Sunday’s final round and are four shots ahead of South Korea’s Jee Young Lee and Na Yeon Choi, along with Suzann Pettersen of Norway who is the defending champion at 6 under par.

Following in a tie for 9th is Paula Creamer and Morgan Pressel at 212 with Cristie Kerr, Christina Kim, Kristy McPherson and Karin Siodin tied for 11th at 213.
