INDUSTRY, Calif. (AP) Michelle Wie has been too busy with finals at Stanford to have a problem with the LPGA Tour's light early schedule.
A day before the start of play Thursday in the Kia Classic, Wie said: "It didn't seem so slow because I had finals last week and I've been going to school."
Wie won the Canadian Women's Open last season for her second LPGA Tour title. She has played two of the first three events this year, finishing second last month in the season-opening event in Thailand and 40th the following week in Singapore.
The top 14 players in the world ranking are in the field, led by No. 1 Yani Tseng. She won in Thailand and has three other worldwide victories this year.
