Closing out the CN Canadian Women’s Open, Michelle Wie shot a 2-under 70 on Sunday, claiming her second LPGA Tour career victory.
As a prize for her victory, Wie took home the $337,000 winner’s check for winning the $2.25 million event that was held at St. Charles Country Club. The event is known as the only stop that the LPGA Tour takes in Canada.
Overall, Wie had experienced 5 birdies in the 13th to 15th holes.
As for her performance, Wie said, “I made a lot of crucial putts.”
Kristy McPherson shot a 66 and landed in a tie for second place with Ji-yai Shin, the South Korean who shot a 73. Others who held the position included previous champion Suzann Petterson with a 69, and Jee Lee Young, also South Korean, with a 69 as well.
According to Shin, “My shot was really good but my putting was so bad… I (had) lots of chances for birdies but I couldn’t make it just a couple times.” To date, Shin has enjoyed four victories since she joined last season.
After the round, Wie and good friend Christina Kim celebrated with Kim spraying her with champagne. Wie said, “I was trying to run away from her… All I was thinking in my mind was I’m wearing white pants; please be nice, Tina.”
