Michelle Wie will try to follow up her first major title win with another strong performance at the LPGA Tour's Arkansas Championship which begins Friday at the Pinnacle Country Club. The 24-year-old American claimed her first major championship at Pinehurst on Sunday, beating reigning Women's British Open champ Stacy Lewis by two strokes. Wie, who is ranked seventh in the world, will be one of the stars teeing it up at the Arkansas event as she is paired in the first round with South Korea's Ryu So-Yeon and American compatriot Paula Creamer. "I was just so happy to get on a plane to Arkansas so I could just play some golf," Wie said.
