What's in Michelle Wie's US Open winning bag?June 23, 2014 Golf Equipment
We take a look at the Nike equipment which helped Michelle Wie land her first major at the US Women's Open
Nike Golf staffer Michelle Wie powered her way to a two-shot victory at the U.S. Women’s Open, capturing the first major championship of her career at Pinehurst.
The 24-year-old notched her second LPGA Tour win of the year – and fourth of her career – with a final score of two under par.
Wie celebrated her major milestone on the 18th green with her fellow LPGA athletes, who doused her in champagne.
Wie ranks second in greens in regulation – 79 percent – on the LPGA Tour with her Nike VR Pro Combo and VR Pro Blade irons.
She is fourth in putts per greens in regulation, playing with an adjusted Method 006 putter featuring Polymetal Groove technology, which helps to reduce skid and produce a truer roll.
Wie’s Nike RZN Black ball features innovative Speedlock RZN technology, designed to deliver more distance, better feel and a more consistent, stable ball flight into the wind.
The win gives Wie eight top-ten finishes this season, moves her from 11th to a projected seventh in the World Rankings, and she now tops the LPGA Tour Official Money List.
Wie sported apparel from Nike’s Tour Performance Women’s collection and the Nike FI Impact shoe.
