(Doug Ferguson/AP) — Michelle Wie has quite the entourage these days.

The doctor at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio who has worked on her hip. The doctor in Los Angeles who has been there for her ankle injuries. She also has a doctor in Florida where she lives. The way her season has gone, Wie can’t live without them.

It’s been one ailment after another since she won the U.S. Women’s Open last year. A finger injury. A respiratory infection. She had bursitis in her left hip and withdrew from the Kingsmill Championship in May. And after finishing 11th at the U.S. Women’s Open — that matched her best result of the year — she developed a bone spur in her left foot that she attributed to the hilly terrain of Lancaster Country Club.

She walked into the press center at Turnberry on Tuesday wearing a protective boot.

OAKVILLE, Ontario (Steve Whyno/Canadian Press) — David Hearn couldn’t beat 61 years of pressure, and he couldn’t beat Jason Day at the RBC Canadian Open.

Trying to be the first Canadian to win the event since Pat Fletcher in 1954, Hearn shot an even-par round and couldn’t keep up with the Aussie. Day birdied the final three holes to win the RBC Canadian Open at 17 under, as Hearn finished two shots back in third place.

“It was one focused mind-set the whole day today to do something really special and win the tournament,” Hearn said. “It hasn’t been done in a long time, and I felt like I had the ability to do it today.

“I gave it my all. I didn’t quite have my best game.”

Dawson finished with a 16-under par total of 264 to claim his second title on the Senior Tour this year after more than 12 years without a victory.

“This is unbelievable,” said Florida-based Dawson, who played over 400 events on the PGA Tour without a win.

BELMONT, Michigan (AP) — Lexi Thompson made sure she didn’t beat herself — and ended up defeating everyone else.

“I was just trying to be patient,” Thompson said after rallying from four shots back to win the Meijer LPGA Classic by a stroke. “Really, the whole day I was just trying to play my own game,”

The 20-year-old Florida player closed with a 6-under 65 at Blythefield Country Club for her fifth LPGA Tour victory. She won for the first time since the then-Kraft Nabisco Championship last year.

Thompson finished at 18-under 266 and earned $300,000.
