EVIAN, France (AP) -- Michelle Wie has suffered heat exhaustion during the pro-am of the Evian Masters but should be able to play in the tournament Thursday in France.

Organizers said on Wednesday that Wie went to see a doctor.

Press officer Olivia Payerne told The Associated Press, "She will start tomorrow as expected."

Top-ranked Ai Miyazato of Japan returns to defend her title. She won after a playoff against Sophie Gustafson.

Wie tied for 23rd last year.
