Safeway Classic has Wie in field

    Michelle Wie, the teenage prodigy whose rapid rise in women’s golf and flirtation with the PGA Tour have made her one of the most famous golfers in the world, will return to Portland to play in the Safeway Classic next month. 

    Wie, a 17-year-old from Honolulu, has accepted a sponsor’s exemption to play in Portland’s annual LPGA Tour stop Aug. 24-26 at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.

    “It’s huge,” said Tom Maletis, president of Tournament Golf Foundation Inc., the nonprofit organization that runs the tournament. “We’re very happy about it.”
