Bio, facts and trivia, photo galleries and more


Even though Michelle Wie is still young, she's been around the golf scene for what feels like a very long time. That's what happens when you burst onto the scene at age 13. Wie has had her ups and downs, but she's also matured from a skinny, trailblazing but controversial kid into a mature, very popular and major-championship winning LPGA Tour star.

2. Michelle Wie Wins in Hawaii at 2014 Lotte

Michelle Wie became a winner in an LPGA Tour event in her home state of Hawaii for the first time on April 19, 2014. She did so by winning the Lotte Championship, her first victory since the 2010 Canadian Women's Open.

Wie earned the win with a stellar final round. She entered Round 4 trailing leader Angela Stanford by four strokes. But while Stanford had some shaky holes, particularly on the front nine, en route to a 73, Wie was outstanding throughout the round. She shot a 67 that included six birdies and no bogies until a meaningless one on the final hole.
