Michelle Wie hopes Canadian success continues in Waterloo
Toronto Star (Canada)
The first round of the inaugural Manulife LPGA Classic takes place Thursday at the Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo.
Wie’s second victory on the LPGA Tour came at the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Open in Winnipeg and she almost repeated the feat last year, finishing one stroke behind Brittany Lincicome in Mirabel, Que.
“Me and my friends always joke that if I win in Canada one more time, that I’m going to become a Canadian citizen,” she says. “I love it. The people are so relaxed and I feel very welcome when I go there, so I’m real excited that we have another tournament there.”
