Wie Shoots 74 in Men's Event

August 22, 2003|From Associated Press

BRIMLEY, Mich. — Michelle Wie, the 13-year-old sensation, showed she can play with the men in Thursday's first round of the Bay Mills Open Players Championship, the final event of the Canadian Tour season.

Wie, whose drives were frequently over 300 yards, had a birdie and three bogeys in a round of two-over-par 74.

That put her seven shots behind Michael Harris, the leader when play was stopped for the second time by a thunderstorm.

Wie, tied for 57th place, is the third female golfer to compete in a men's pro event this year. Annika Sorenstam and Suzy Whaley failed to make the cut in their attempts. Wie might because the cut in this event last year was five over.
