Michelle Wie Wins LPGA Lotte Championship!

Michelle Wie shot a final round 67 to win the LPGA Lotte Championship by 2 strokes over Angela Stanford. It was a reversal of fortune for Wie, as just 2 weeks ago she finished runner up to Lexi Thompson at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. 

It certainly did not look like it was going to be Michelle Wie's day as Angela Stanford birdied the 3rd hole to take a 4 stroke lead over Michelle and Hyo Joo Kim of Korea. Then things started to change quite rapidly. Michelle would birdie holes 5 and 6, while Stanford bogeyed the 6th and 8th holes. Meanwhile Kim was looking very solid with birdies on the 1st, 4th, and 7th holes, and we had a 3 way tie at the turn. 

From there on in it was all Wie, as she made medium length putts on 12, 13, and 16 to seal the victory. 
Stanford could do no better than shoot even par on the back nine, and the pressure seemed to get to Kim as she shot a 2 over par 38 to fall out of contention.

Great balls tricking round. I watched the back nine. She was spot on. Needs to get that putter in order though.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

If Lexi and Michelle get their putting going they are going to have alot of battles in the future.

I watched most of the tournament and most of last weeks tournament.  Both tournaments were fun to watch and serious golf was played.  It is funny, but I did not see Stanford "lose" that tournament.  Just as I did not see Luke Donald "lose" on Sunday.  I saw Michelle Wie win that just as Kuchar won.  Just as Lexi won the previous one.
