What's In My Bag: Michelle Wie


Age: 20 From: Honolulu Story: Won her first LPGA Tour event last November in Mexico; 11 top 10s in the past 18 months.

My first win was pure happiness. A lot of time has passed, and I'd like to experience it again. People say they'd like to see more Americans winning on the LPGA Tour, but our tour is very global now. What it comes down to is that Americans just need to step it up.


I'm a communications major at Stanford and hope to graduate in two more years, but my favorite class was Contemporary Moral Problems. It was an ethics class, and we did a lot of arguing.


It's hard for me to eat a lot because I'm allergic to so many foods. But if I were to pick a favorite, I'd have to say it would be frozen yogurt--doesn't matter what flavor.


I listen to everything from reggae to heavy metal. People might be surprised to know I love country. Some of my favorites: Zac Brown, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.

A nice little girl came up to me at the Sybase this year, and I brought her inside the ropes for a few holes. She came back at the ShopRite and gave me this elephant for good luck. I carry it all the time.

I play the Nike One, but only 1s, 2s or 3s. At the Solheim Cup, I got to the first tee, and my caddie handed me a 4. I freaked out. Fortunately, my parents had some balls with them that I used.
