Hawai'i's Michelle Wie and Kimberly Kim will be paired for the first two rounds of the U.S. Women's Open, which starts Thursday at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minn.
Wie, a Punahou alum, and Kim, a former Big Island resident now living in Arizona, will be joined by Julieta Granada of Paraguay.
Wie qualified at a U.S. Open sectional in Maryland earlier this month. Kim has a two-year exemption after winning the U.S. Women's Amateur in 2006.
The trio will tee off at 3:17 a.m. Hawai'i time Thursday from the first hole and 8:47 a.m. Friday from the 10th tee.
Cyd Okino, a Punahou 10th-grader, is Hawai'i's other entry in the tournament, winning the Turtle Bay sectional earlier this month. She will tee off at 4:01 a.m. Thursday from the 10th tee and 9 a.m. Friday from the first tee.
