Michelle Wie won her first LPGA Tour title, fulfilling the promise of a decade with a 3-under 69 Sunday for a two-stroke victory over Paula Creamer in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.
Wie, who has six runner-up finishes and six third-place showings in her career, claimed her first victory by two strokes over Paula Creamer. Wie ended at 13-under-par 275.
"It’s definitely off by my back," she said. "I think that hopefully life will be a lot better, but I still have a lot of work to do."
The 20-year-old Wie raised both arms in the air – her putter in her right hand – and then put her hand over her mouth. After pulling the ball out of the hole, she turned to the gallery, looked to the sky and let out a big sigh of relief.
"wowwwww……never thought this would feel THIS great!!!!" she posted on her Twitter account.
