Add Michelle Wie to the list of LPGA stars--including Lorena Ochoa, Ji-Yai Shin, Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel, and Natalie Gulbis--who have committed early to the Honda PTT LPGA Thailand season-opening event, according to Randall Mell. (If anyone conversant in Thai would care to translate the daily video updates on the tournament web site, please let me know!) So after Wie plays in Thailand and Singapore at the HSBC Women's Champions event, I'm wondering if the organizers of the ANZ Ladies Masters will try to snap her up for a quick jaunt Down Under....
[Update 1 (11:33 am): Head on over to Asian Golf Daily for more on Wie's 1st appearance at the HSBC.]
[Update 2 (12:32 pm): LPGA.com drops some more names of SE Asian swing participants, including ones we've known about like Juli Inkster and ones we've expected like Karrie Webb, Se Ri Pak, Cristie Kerr, and Na Yeon Choi.]
[Update 3 (12:36 pm): I think it's safe to assume that all the LPGAers who qualified for the HSBC Women's Champions event will be tuning up in Thailand the week before, eh?]
[Update 4 (1/21/10, 7:03 pm): Ji-Yai Shin is a sophomore at Yonsei University in Korea? News to me!]
