Wie to Play Two Canadian Tour Events

RSS

Michelle Wie, an eighth-grade student from Honolulu, has accepted offers to play in two men's events on the Canadian Tour this summer.
 
Organizers of the Bay Mills Open Players' Championship, Aug. 21-24 in Brimley, Mich., called the Wie family Sunday to offer Michelle a sponsor's exemption. And the Greater Vancouver Classic contacted the family about Michelle playing in its July 31-Aug. 3 event.
 
The Wies tentatively said yes. The Classic could conflict with the U.S. Women's Amateur.
 
'I'm happy I got the exemption,' Wie told the Honululu Advertiser. 'I think I'll play good in it.'
 
Wie is 13 years old. She shot 73 in the Sony Open qualifier.
