GUADALAJARA, Mexico>> Hawaii golfer Michelle Wie finished tied for seventh at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Guadalajara, Mexico today.

 Lexi Thompson won the tournament for her second victory in her last four starts, birdieing the final hole to beat Stacy Lewis by a stroke.

The 18-year-old Thompson made a 5-foot putt on the par-5 18th, then won when Lewis missed her 5-foot try.

Thompson closed with a 3-under 69 to finish at 16-under 272 at Guadalajara Country Club. She won the 2011 LPGA Navistar Classic at 16, and took the LPGA Malaysia last month for her second tour title.

The third-ranked Lewis, a three-time winner this year, had a 68.

So Yeon Ryu was third at 13 under after a 69.

Top-ranked Inbee Park finished fourth at 11 under to wrap up the points-based player of the year award with one event left. She is the first South Korean player to win the award.

Wie, who won the event in 2009,  collects $25,884 for her seventh place finish, tied with four other players.
