WATERLOO, Ontario (AP) - Michelle Wie of Honolulu ended Saturday's third round of the Manulife LPGA Financial Classic in a tie for second place, two shots behind Shanshan Feng.

Wie shot a 3-under-par 68 at Grey Silo Golf Course for a 54-hole total of 13-under 200, tied with Inbee Park. Wie rebounded from bogeys on the second and third holes with birdies on Nos. 4 and 6.

"Yeah, quite a shaky start," Wie said. "I missed a good birdie opportunity on the first hole and I kind of duck-hooked it on the second hole and had to take an unplayable, and actually it was a really good bogey.

"Then I kind of hooked it on the next hole, hit it in the bunker. So I just couldn't get my tempo right in the beginning, but definitely felt like I finished strong. Definitely the start that I had today, I'm really happy with the way I finished."

Feng carded a 67. She made a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 fifth, had two birdies and dropped her first stroke of the week with a bogey on the par-4 16th.
