Ciganda, Granada tied for lead at LPGA finale

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Michelle Wie played well enough Friday in the CME Globe Tour Championship to consider a million ways her great year can get even better.

On another blustery day, Carlota Ciganda of Spain had a 5-under 67 to share the lead with Julieta Granada of Paraguay, who shot 70. They were a stroke ahead of Morgan Pressel, who birdied all the par 5s in her round of 66.

Wie had a 67 and emerged as a possibility to win the Race to CME Globe and collect the $1 million bonus. Wie was two shots off the lead and in prime position to capture the biggest payoff in women's golf.

Stacy Lewis struggled to a 74 and was six shots behind. Inbee Park was eight shots back after a 74.
