Pain-free Wie sets early Champions pace

Clark native Kim Kaufman shot a 3-over par 75 during the first round of the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore. "It's fun being in this position", Wie said.

Among the other Thai competitors, Moriya Jutanugarn was at 6 under, two shots ahead of Pornanong Phatlum, who was the runner-up to Jang a year ago.

Lydia Ko has found her mojo again.

Bjork had a 67 to match Jamieson at 10-under 132 at Pretoria Country Club.

Wie will do well to take note of the chasing pack, with world No. 2 Ariya Jutanugarn, former world No 1 Park Inbee, Mo Martin, Anna Nordqvist, and Brooke Henderson just a stroke behind in joint-second place. I'm really proud of myself for putting myself in this position.

A weather delay during the middle of the day caused the late conclusion of play on day three but for Wie she continued her form reversal with three birdies in her first five holes today and completed a round of five under to be at 14 under.

South Korea's Rio Olympic gold medallist Park In-Bee was a shot further back at 11-under after firing a 71, level with her compatriot Jang Ha-Na (68), who won in Singapore past year and also won in Australia last month.

Wie needed a sponsor's invitation this week in the $1.5 million LPGA tournament, but she is now in position to end her three-year title drought.

"I didn't want to ruin the day with one bad hole with an unlucky shot". "That's what I've been trying to do the past few days, and that's the mind-set I've got to take on to tomorrow, because there are birdies out there".

"Just keep doing what I'm doing", she said.

The Kiwi teenager has struggled early on this year's tour but now looks to be finding her touch.

Wie made a flying start to her round, birdieing the first two holes and covering the front nine in just 32 shots before play was halted because of lightning in the area. "I just couldn't make any putts", she said.

Wie, who has not won on the LPGA Tour since 2014 when she claimed her third title, stormed back from a slow start when she bogeyed the third hole to add eight birdies and a bogey for her round of 66.

"I feel good about it (my round)", said the 2014 US Open champion.

Michelle Wie holds a two-shot lead over Lydia Ko, Sung Hyun Park, and Ariya Jutanugarn heading into the final round of the LPGA Women's HBSC Champions event in Singapore.
