Wie in 6th place after round one of LPGA Classic

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On the same week she cracked the top-10 rankings, Michelle Wie rode her momentum to a 4-under 67 in round one of the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway, New Jersey.

The Punahou alum carded five birdies and just one bogey and when she initially left the course was just one stroke off the lead.

Jennifer Johnson tops the leaderboard after shooting a 9-under 62.

Round two gets underway Saturday.
