Video: Birdie on 17, eagle on 10 propel Wie to win

RSS

Michelle Wie was cruising to her first major victory on Sunday when she ran into some trouble on the 16th hole, making a double-bogey 6 that dropped her back to the pack. The former prodigy showed some newfound maturity that has made her a force on the LPGA tour this year however, responding with birdie on 17 to reclaim a two-stroke lead over Stacy Lewis, all but sealing her first major.

Almost as impressive was the eagle she made on the par-5 10th hole. It seperated her from the field and her win would've looked like Martin Kaymer's runaway last week, had it not have given back two shots at 16.
