ROGERS, Ark., Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Michelle Wie scorched the front nine Saturday, easing to a 7-under-par 64 and a three-stroke lead after two rounds of the P&G NW Arkansas Championship.
Wie, seeking her third career and second straight LPGA crown, shot a 28 through the first nine holes and finished two rounds at 10-under 132.
Wie took the top honors in her last event, the Canadian Women's Open. Her only other win came at last year's Lorena Ochoa Invitational.
Paige Mackenzie (65), Seon Hwa Lee (65) and Janice Moodie (69) shared fifth place one shot further back at minus-6.
