Michelle Wie continues hot streak in Canada
By Bernie D'Amato under LPGA

 

Once again, Michelle Wie is near the top of the leaderboard at an LPGA event. Wie is at 10-under total, one-stroke off the lead held by Shanshan Feng and Hee Young Park at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic in Ontario, Canada.

Last week’s T23 at the ShopRite LPGA Classic was a mere blip in the radar for Wie, who is second in the season-long Race to the CME Globe. Since the beginning of April, Michelle has a win, a second, two thirds, and a T9. The only player who has a better record over that time period is World No. 1 Stacy Lewis.

The U.S. Women’s Open will take place in a couple weeks, and the national championship is surely on Wie’s mind. Her career is enjoying a resurgence, and she has an opportunity to finally breakthrough at a major. Let’s hope the solid play continues at Pinehurst No. 2.
