Montreal will get the LPGA Tour to return in 2011

compiled from staff, wire and LPGA news

The Ladies Professional Golf Tour will be returning to the Montreal area in 2011.

The Canadian Women’s Open will move next year to the Hillsdale Golf and Country Club in Mirabel, Quebec. The tournament will be held August 25-28, with an expected purse of $2.25 million.

Golf Canada CEO Scott Simmons said that a dozen clubs were interested in hosting the event, which is the only LPGA Tour stop in Canada.

This is the first foray into the area since 2002 when Meg Mallon won at Summerlea Golf and Country Club.

This year’s tournament will be held at St. Charles Country Club in Winnipeg from August 26-29.

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.

Song-Hee Kim will be starting the third round of the LPGA’s first major tournament, the Kraft Nabisco Championship on top of the leaderboard followed by several winners of major LPGA tournaments.

The 21-year-old South Korean native at number 14 in the world, is the highest ranking LPGA Tour member without a victory.

Kim has top-10-finishes in all three events this season as she chases her first victory. Her two-round total of 7-under 137 in the season’s first major gave her a 0ne-shot lead over majors winners Cristie Kerr (67), Karen Stupples (69) and top-ranked Lorena Ochoa (70).

Karrie Webb (70), a two-time winner at Mission Hills golf course in Rancho Mirage, California, and a seven-time major winner overall, was two strokes back along with Stacy Lewis (68), Yani Tseng (71), the 2008 LPGA Championship winner, and first-round leader Suzann Petterson (73) were  4 under par.
