Michelle Wie to start ’08 at LPGA Fields Open

It will be her first professional event since October 2007. From Golf Week-

Michelle Wie will make her 2008 LPGA debut at the Fields Open in Hawaii, according to a report in the Honolulu Advertiser.

The Fields, the second LPGA event of the season, will be held Feb. 21-23 at Ko Olina Golf Club in Honolulu. It will be Wie’s first tournament since she finished second-to-last at the Samsung World Championship last October.

“I’m excited to see Michelle because she’s spent so much time out here,” Ko Olina director of golf Greg Nichols told the Advertiser. “It will be great to have her back. … This is her home course and I fully expect her to play well.”

Wie finished third at the 2006 Fields Open, a shot out of a playoff; she did not play the event last year.

Michelle is a very talented golfer. If her wrists have healed, she should return to pre-2007 form. Her passing on the Sony Open was a good sign, lets hope there are more in the year ahead.
