Michelle Wie 1 Shot Back in Thailand LPGA Tournament


Michelle Wie in ThailandMichelle Wie started out rounds 1 and 2 playing solid golf and just continued that play into round 3 today in Thailand. A great way to start the 2011 LPGA season, playing consistent.

Although Wie had a few bumps early, scoring bogeys in the first few holes, she regained composure and didn’t let it get her off track. Despite the start she finished the round with a 1-under 71. Kim, yesterdays leader, finished the day at even par 72 to hold onto 8-under for the tournament in a tie for second place with Michelle Wie.

The two are chasing the worlds number 1 golfer, Yani Tseng, who had anything but rhythm on the day. Tseng carded five birdies, three bogeys, one double-bogey, before finishing the day with an eagle to move to 9 under and jump out to the lead.

It’s good to see Michelle Wie playing the way she has been. The conditions are back and forth with soaked fairways and greens followed up by beautiful sunshine, making for a difficult day of staying on top of how you should be playing. Instead of folding after a difficult 3rd round start, Wie battled back to show she belongs with the worlds number one.

Michelle Wie is looking to nab her 3rd title on the LPGA tour and begin the year on a high note. To do so, she’ll have to show she can continue those nerves of steel as she’ll be paired with Tseng. Anytime you play with the worlds number one it has to be difficult. When big money is on the line, it has to be even tougher.

Still in contention is Paula Creamer, no stranger to pressure and coming from behind, she’s 2 off the lead, as well as Karrie Webb who finds herself 3 strokes back of the leaders.
