Wie cards lowest finish of 2014; finishes 23rd at Shoprite

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

The streaks continue to build up for Michelle Wie.

In addition to five straight top-10 finishes, the Punahou grad has never ended below 16th all year and since last October, has not come in lower than 25th.

She entered Sunday's final round of the Shoprite LPGA Classic tied for 19th, so one of those runs had a chance of coming to an end.

The 24-year-old started the day nine shots off the lead, but unfortunately, she had a tough time making up the deficit.   She reeled off five birdies, but answered them with four bogeys and fired a 70 to end the weekend.

Wie ends the day 12 shots off the tournament winner, Stacy Lewis, to finish at 23rd place, which is her lowest result of 2014.

The 10th-ranked golfer is expected to compete in next week's Manulife Classic in Canada.
