Wie shoots 66, finishes tied for third in South Korea

By Associated Press


INCHEON, South Korea >> Hawaii's Michelle Wie, who started the final round tied for 22nd, surged up the leaderboard with six birdies for the day's lowest score of 66 to finish tied for third at 8-under 208 with defending champion Suzann Pettersen of Norway (70) and South Korea's Sei Young Kim (69) at the KEB HanaBank Championship.

Amy Yang birdied the first playoff hole on Sunday to beat South Korean compatriot Hee Kyung Seo and win the KEB HanaBank Championship.

Yang's birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole at the Ocean Course in Incheon gave the 24-year-old Yang her first victory of the 2013 season.

Yang eagled the par-4 15th in regulation and added two birdies against a lone bogey for a 69. Seo eagled the par-4 11th and had four birdies against two bogeys for a 68 as both players ended regulation at 9-under 207.

Overnight co-leader Anna Nordqvist of Sweden shot a 74 that left her tied for eighth. Katherine Hull-Kirk of Australia, who also held a share of the lead heading into the final round, had seven bogeys en route to a 79.

South Korean star Inbee Park, who leads the money list and the player of the year rankings, shot a second-straight round of 73 that left her tied for 28th.

Since the tournament's first year in 2002, a South Korean player was won the title eight

Was it elementary or middle school ? Probably a very rural county or perhaps all counties are about the same. North Dakota is not known as a haven for good VBl players. Why aren't you posting comments on the VB Rainbow Wahine's if you really played any level of VB. No technical or specific comments about the team or players, why?

My thinking exactly. She probably spends her days flying on private jets to different events around the world. The lady plays golf for a living! Yeah wouldn't we all like to have her "messed up" life.
