Heading back to Stanford soon, Michelle Wie wins CN Canadian Open

Eventhough she is a member of the LPGA Tour, Michelle Wie has been looking forward to going back to college this fall. She’ll be heading back to Stanford University after the LPGA’s next event beginning September 10, the P&G NW Arkansas Championship.

In the meantime, on Sunday at Winnipeg, Manitoba, Wie closed with a 2-under-par 70 Sunday for a three-shot win at the Canadian Women’s Open, her second career win on the LPGA Tour.

Wie, who was 12 under for the tournament, earned a winner’s check of $337,500 in the $2.25-million event at St. Charles Country Club, the LPGA’S only tournament in Canada.

In the final round, Wie had five birdies, including the 13th, 14th and 15th holes.

Wie led wire-to-wire after an opening round of 65 and was tied with Jiyai Shin for the lead entering the final round at 10 under. She also had the second hole-in-one of her career in the opening round.

The 20-year-old Wie received a congratulatory spray of champagne from her longtime friend on the tour, Christina Kim.

Wie’s first career win came in November at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational during her rookie year.

Jiyai Shin of South Korea shot a 73 and tied for second with Kristy McPherson (66), defending champion Suzann Pettersen of Norway (69) and South Korean Jee Lee Young (69).

Ai Mayazato of Japan, the Number 1 ranked player heading into the Open shot a 69 and finished 15th, while Number 2 Cristie Kerr also shot a 69 on Sunday to finished eighth in the tournament.

compiled from staff, wire and LPGA reports

Paula Creamer, trying to win her first major title, has maintained her three-shot lead in the U.S. Women’s Open after completing the final five holes of her third round.

Creamer finished up a second straight 1-under 70 at Oakmont Country Club and is one under par through 54 holes. Wendy Ward, a former U.S. amateur champion, is three shots off the lead. Four shots back are Amy Yang, Suzann Pettersen and Christina Kim.

Trailing by five shots is 15-year-old Alexis Thompson, who is trying to become the youngest golfer to win a major in either men’s or women’s golf.

Creamer, who is bothered by a left thumb injury, parred the 14th and 15th holes when play resumed. She took a bogey on the 16th, but rallied with a birdie on the difficult, par-4 18th.

The fourth round of the tournament has begun as of  10:00 A.M. Sunday morning. Rain on Friday pushed the rounds back.

PROFESSIONAL GOLF: LPGA and PGA

LPGA TOUR

Christina Kim has emerged as the favorite after Friday in the U.S. Women’s Open.

On a day when the elements managed to control the golf play at Oakmont Country Club, Kim was one of the few golfers who managed to finish the second round on Friday.

Kim, who has had a tough time all-season finding her game until about 10 days ago, came up with a second successive 1-over 72 before rain shut down the play and course for the day by mid-afternoon. That put her one shot behind the clubhouse leaders, Cristie Kerr and Brittany Lang.

Kerr had a 71 and first-round leader Lang a 74.

About two-thirds of the field is settled in for a very long Saturday, playing all or most of the second round in the morning and all or most of the third round in the afternoon. Kim, Kerr and Lang are among those who could have a short one.

The second-round leaders won’t begin the third round until very late in the afternoon, they almost certainly won’t complete their rounds. They will finish up Sunday morning, in time for the final round to go off on schedule.

PGA TOUR

Defending champion Steve Stricker broke the 36-hole record at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois on Friday to take a one-stroke lead heading into the third round.

Stricker, playing in the morning group, shot a 5-under 66 for a two-round total of 126, which is 16 under at the TPC Deere Run course.

That was good enough to hold off Paul Goydos, who sent alot of chatter and shock through the golf community in the opening round by shooting only the fourth 59 in PGA Tour history.

Goydos, however couldn’t maintain the accurate putting that he had to join golf’s most exclusive club and he had to settle for a 3-under 68, leaving him at 127.

The 36-hole record was 127 by David Frost in 2000, the first year the tournament was played at Deere Run.

Stricker showed no-effects from a shoulder injury that kept him on the sidelines for six weeks earlier this year.

Goydos failed to break par on any of the last seven holes and bogeyed two of them. He needed 32 putts on Friday.

Choi had rounds of 64, 67, 68 and 71 to finish at 14-under-par 270. It took a 15-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to extend her chance at a win after she had blown what had at one time been a five-stroke lead.

The playoff holes were 17 and 18, both par 5′s.
