No need to adjust the color on your television set this weekend if you’re planning to watch the LPGA’s Walmart Northwest Arkansas Championship Friday (3-6 p.m. ET) on Golf Channel. Michelle Wie’s hair is now red.
Wie showed up for her news conference Thursday with a new hair color.
“I wanted to go red for a while, kind of wanted to change it up a little bit,” Wie said. “Haven't done anything drastic to my hair for a long time. I didn't want to cut it, so I guess dying was the way to go.”
With a new belly putter in her bag for the last month, changes seem to be working for Wie. She tied for second at the CN Canadian Women's Open in her last start.
'It’s just something that I've been trying out, like it so far,' Wie said of the belly putter. 'Just going to keep working on it.”
Wie found her top form at the Solheim Cup two years ago and she carried the momentum on in winning her first LPGA event later that fall. She seems to be finding her form again with the Solheim Cup two weeks away. She's looking for her first victory this season, which would give her LPGA titles in each of the last three seasons.
