Michelle Wie Wins CN Canadian Open

Michelle Wie wins second LPGA Title

Michelle Wie tore up the 13th, 14th and 15th holes firing birdies on each and taking a three stroke lead in the CN Canadian Open in Winnipeg, Canada.

Wie started the day in a tie at 10 under par and didn’t really get her game started until the par 5 13th hole where she used her long distance driver to put her into position for birdie.

On the par 5, 14th hole, Wie hit her second shot into the sand bunker, but placed the ball to within 20 feet on her third shot before draining another birdie.

On the 15th hole Wie put the tournament out of reach by dropping another birdie and moving herself four strokes ahead of on the leader board.

Wie is considered by many, me included, to be the Tiger Woods of professional golf and a key person that will bring life back into the LPGA.

The six foot tall, Hawaii born, 20 year old is the darling of the women’s circuit and has now won her second tour victory.

Wie was tied for first after the third round with Jiyae Shin at 10 under.  Shin had an up and down final round and finished with a bogey on the 17th hole to drop her in a group at 9 under for the runner-up position.  Wie also bogeyed the 17th, but still won the Canadian Open by three strokes.

Wie led the Open for 68 out of 72 holes, winning by three strokes over her closest competition.
