Winner's Bag: What Michelle Wie used to win the U.S. Women's Open

By E. Michael Johnson


Wie had the lie angle flattened slightly, and the move paid off as she made numerous clutch putts, including the five-footer for double bogey at the 16th on Sunday to cling to a one-shot lead as well as the 25-foot birdie putt on the penultimate hole that essentially clinched her victory.
