Michelle Wie Advances

Teenage phenom Michelle Wie won her opening match over Will Claxton at the US Amateur Public Links golf tournament. Wie (#55 seed) beat Claxton (#10 seed) with a birdie on the final hole. Claxton was a quarter-finalist last year, so this was a big win for Wie.

The original field of 156 golfers was cut to 64 for match play, and now 32 golfers are still alive after the first round of matches. Wie needs to win five more matches to win the championship, which traditionally brings an invitation to The Masters.
