KAHUKU (KHNL) - It just wasn't meant to be for Michelle Wie, as she came up short in the season opening, SBS Open on Oahu's north shore. 

After entering the final round of the SBS Open tied with Angela Stanford for the lead at 8-under, the 19-year old got off to a solid start on the front nine. Wie had seven pars and 2 birdies to take a two stroke lead over Stanford after nine holes.

But Stanford made a comeback on the back nine, as she tied Wie for the lead when she birdied the 13th hole.

Stanford never looked back, as she finishes 2-under on the day and 10-under for the tourney, as she wins the SBS Open.

Wie bogeyed the 17th hole and shoots a final round, 73 to finish 7-under for the tourney.

Wie collects 108-thousand dollars for her second place finish. Na Yeon Choi and Angela Park tied for 3rd place at 4-under.
