MUNICH, Germany (AP) — Michelle Wie shot a 4-under 68 at the Ladies German Open with about half the field in the clubhouse, trailing leader Nina Reis of Sweden by four strokes.
The 18-year-old American birdied three of the first five holes in the opening round and made par the rest of the way at the Golfpark Gut Haeusern, north of Munich.
To which I say, hurrah!
[Update 6/2/2008: Michelle came in 6th with 274, 14 under after the final round.] More
