Michelle Wie played a solid round of golf despite high winds blowing through the mountainside ravines at the Tres Marias Championship, shooting a 5-under 68 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead in Morelia, Mexico.

Brittany Lincicome (67) and Japan’s Ai Miyazato (72) were tied for second place.

But Lorena Ochoa in her farewell tournament, let the gusts and emotional ups-and-downs get to her and fell five strokes off pace with a 73.

The top-ranked Ochoa, under some pressure to deliver a victory for her adoring fans in Mexico, she has won the event three times.

Wie beat the wind, and seems to love playing in Mexico where she won her first LPGA event 5 1/2 months ago in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Guadalajara which is her hometown.

Wie could have had a better second round. She pulled off a spectacular birdie on the 541-yard 16th, but then stumbled with two bogeys.

The 28-year-old Ochoa chose to play Thursday and Friday with Ai Miyazato and Natalie Gulbis. She calls Miyazato “the nicest girl on the tour,” and she grew up playing junior golf, and college golf at Arizona with Gulbis.
