Wie sets a standard in Women's Open at Pinehurst
By DOUG FERGUSON
PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) Michelle Wie birdied the last two holes Friday for a 2-under 68 and set a target for Stacy Lewis at the U.S. Women's Open.
Wie already contended in the first major on the LPGA Tour this year. Those last two birdies put her at 4-under 136, one shot ahead of Lewis, who was to play in the afternoon.
Only two other players broke par from the morning groups. One was Amy Yang, who had a 69 and was at even-par 140. Minjee Lee, the 18-year-old amateur from Australia, had a 71 and also was at 140.
Among those playing in the afternoon was 11-year-old Lucy Li, the youngest qualifier in U.S. Women's Open history. She opened with a 78 and probably needs par or better to make the cut.
