Wie set for Dubai retun in December


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Officials from the women’s European Tour say Michelle Wie will end her season at Dubai in the final event of the year.

The officials say the American will play in the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters from Dec. 12-17, a $710,129 event hosted by the Emirates Golf Club.

The 21-year-old Wie, who finished runner-up in 2009, came in fifth last year after struggling for most of the tournament with a bad back. The 10th-ranked Wie has had four top 10 finishes this year on the LPGA Tour but has yet to win.

Wie says in a statement her goal was winning in Dubai and that she looked forward to facing tough competition from the European players.
