    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.
