    Hawaii’s Own Michelle Wie leads Tres Marias Championship

    Punahou grad, Michelle Wie, on verge of winning her first LPGA title

    Hawaii native and Punahou graduate, Michelle Wie, fired a five-under 68 on Friday to seize the second-round lead in the LPGA Tres Marias Championship in Mexico as Lorena Ochoa faltered in her farewell event.

    Wie had a 36-hole total of 134, one shot in front of Japan’s Ai Miyazato and American Brittany Lincicome.

    Overnight leader Miyazato carded a 72, while Lincicome notched a 67.

    South Korea’s Na Yeon Choi was alone in fourth after a 68 for 137, and compatriot Jee Young Lee was a further shot back after a 67 for 138.

    Wie has never won on the LPGA circuit, but this may be her best opportunity to make a breakthrough in the winner’s circle.

    Michelle Wie Mounting Late Charge in Singapore

    Michelle Wie - tied for 15th and five strokes behind leaders

    Hawaii’s Michelle Wie moved into a tie for 15th place by shooting a three under par 69 on day three of the HBSC Women’s Championships at the Tanah Merah Country Club.

    Located at the southern end of Changi Airport runway, Tanah Merah has two 18-hole golf courses, and is one of Singapore’s finest.

    Can Wie overcome a five stroke deficit to catch Ai Miyazato and Juli Inkster?  I have high hopes that see can!
