EVIAN, France (AP) — Michelle Wie suffered heat exhaustion during the pro-am of the Evian Masters on Wednesday but is expected to play in the first round of the tournament.

Wie went to see a doctor, a tournament official said.

“She didn’t feel faint,” press officer Olivia Payerne told The Associated Press. “This is nothing serious. She went to see a doctor and everything is fine. She will start (Thursday) as expected.”

Top-ranked Ai Miyazato of Japan returns to defend the title she won in a playoff against Sophie Gustafson.

Wie tied for 23rd last year.

In 2006, Wie succumbed to heat exhaustion at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill., and spent a few hours in a hospital.
