GLADSTONE, N.J. Michelle Wie has drawn Stacy Prammanasudh for the first round of the Sybase Match Play Championship, while top-ranked Jiyai Shin will open against South Korean compatriot Kyeong Bae.

The top 32 seeds selected their opponents in a blind draw Tuesday for the 64-player LPGA Tour event that begins Thursday at Hamilton Farm.

Second-seeded Ai Mayazato, the Japanese star who has won three of the first six events of the season, drew Jeong Jang. Third-seeded Suzann Pettersen will face Hall of Famer Juli Inkster, and fourth-seeded Yani Tseng will play Wendy Ward.
