ROGERS, Ark. (AP) — With a pair of wins in the last 11 months, Michelle Wie is finally turning potential into success.
This week, the big-hitting former prodigy will try for her second straight LPGA Tour victory, part of a loaded field at the P&G NW Arkansas Championship. The 54-hole event begins Friday and also includes 2010 money leader Jiyai Shin and world No. 1 Ai Miyazato.
In fact, 14 of the top 15 players in the Rolex rankings are entered, with only 10th-ranked Paula Creamer (thumb injury) missing. Wie, ranked No. 7, is coming off a victory late last month at the Canadian Women’s Open.
Shin won the Arkansas event last year.
