She finished in the top 10 twice last season in seven events, including a T-3 at the U.S. Women's Open, then went out and finished first at Q-school. She may not win this week, but she's in position for a top 10 to start the season. 4:10 p.m. Opening pars for Wie and Stanford. 4:05 p.m Can't imagine what a win today would do for Wie's confidence. She hasn't won a tournament in six years! She's played steady golf in tough conditions all week, but Wie is going up against a tough opponent in Angela Stanford, a three-time winner on Tour.Leaderboard on LPGA.com | Photos | More about Wie
