HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

For the first time since winning the Lotte Championship in Kapolei, Michelle Wie returned to action Thursday teeing off at the inaugural Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic.

After double bogeying the first hole, the Punahou grad recovered to finish the day at an even par-72.

The 24-year-old scattered three birdies through the round, two of which were on the front nine.

Wie heads into the second round six shots behind the leader and tied for 24th place.
