Twenty-year-old pro golfer Michelle Wie has been the talk of the town ever since arriving in Winnipeg this week for the CN Canadian Women’s Open. After spending one of her first nights in the city at The Forks, it was down to business on Monday.

Wie was the highlight of the day on Thursday after sinking a hole-in-one on the par-three 11th hole at St. Charles Country Club.

By midday Friday, Wie was 10 under with a 69.

After a successful Pro Am that drew about 10,000 spectators earlier in the week, tournament organizers are all smiles at the level of fan excitement continuing right through the weekend with mild temperatures to boot.

The Open goes until Sunday.
