MICHELLE WIE’S wire-to-wire win at the 2010 Canadian Open was an emotional one for the young American. Shooting a final-round 70 at St Charles Country Club in Winnipeg helped her to 12-under for the event. Wie held off a star-studded cast that included Suzann Pettersen, Jiyai Shin, Kristy McPherson and Jee Young Lee to win by three shots. Wie entered Sunday’s final round tied with Shin at 10-under par, and after a slip-up bogey at the par- 4 fourth, she took control of the tournament with consistent play and locked in the win thanks to three consecutive birdies on the back-nine. It was the 20-year- old’s second LPGA win. CANADIAN CLASH INALL, 97 of the top 100 players on the LPGA Money List will be in the field at Hillsdale this week.
