Wie scores ace, leads Canadian Women’s Open with 65

WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Michelle Wie has had the second hole-in-one of her professional career on the way to a 7-under 65 and a three-shot lead after the first round of the LPGA CN Canadian Women’s Open.

The 6-foot-tall Wie says she’s notched eight holes-in-one in her career, but only one other as a pro, in her rookie season at last year’s LPGA Championship. This on came on the 190-yard, par-3 11th hole.

Sarah Kemp of Australia was three strokes back of Wie after her morning-round 68, while defending champion Suzann Pettersen was in third place with a 69.



Rookie Ilhee Lee of South Korea initially had a score of 69, but it was later corrected to 70 – a mark shared by a group of players.

European Tour



GLENEAGLES, Scotland – Richard Finch of England shot a 6-under 66 to lead the Johnnie Walker Championship after the opening round.

Finch is looking to end a two-year drought since winning twice in 2008, at the New Zealand Open and Irish Open.

Five players are a shot back. The English quartet of Robert Rock, Richard Bland, Gary Boyd and David Lynne, and Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher.

England’s Simon Dyson is at 4 under and a chance of breaking into the leading nine on the Ryder Cup points standings.

Dyson arrived in Scotland in 13th place in the standings and four places short of automatically qualifying. However, he needs to win to have any chance of making the European team.
