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!
