With a week to go until the Wegmans LPGA Championship, Michelle Wie got a nice momentum boost Friday.
The Punahou grad picked up five birdies in the first round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway, New Jersey.
After back-to-back birdies on holes 16 and 17, Wie finished the round in fourth place at a 68.
The finish ties her lowest score of the season.
