Wie Pressel paired for Krafts final round


RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Morgan Pressel and Michelle Wie will be paired together in the second to last twosome off Sunday at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Pressel is four behind the leader, Yani Tseng. Wie is six shots behind.

Pressel and Wie were once pitted as junior rivals who took two completely different routes to the professional game, Pressel winning her way through the junior and amateur ranks, Wie taking on men and women in tour events as a junior.

All these years later – Pressel is 22, Wie 21 – they both are seeking their third LPGA titles, Pressel her second major, Wie her first.

“It’ll be fun,” Pressel said. “We get along very well. It’s been a long time since we’ve played together. We’ll have a good gallery, for sure.”
