Two of the world's most famous 15-year-old athletes will be teeing off at O'ahu golf courses this week.

Punahou sophomore Michelle Wie is playing in the LPGA's SBS Open at Turtle Bay beginning tomorrow, where she is the lone amateur in a field of 132 golfers.

Soccer's Freddy Adu of D.C. United is playing in the "Tee-Up for Leahi" Golf Tournament today at the Ala Wai Golf Course, in conjunction with Saturday's 2005 Aloha Soccer Cup.

"I wish I was playing golf with her," Adu said of Wie. "I would love to play golf with her one time, that would be awesome."

D.C. United forward and MLS All-Star Jaime Moreno also will be at Ala Wai.
