Nike Golf congratulates Michelle Wie on LPGA LOTTE Championship

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Nike Athlete Michelle Wie shot a final round 5-under 67 and powered past the field from four shots back to clinch the LPGA LOTTE Championship, her first victory on the LPGA Tour since 2010.

The 24-year-old, who now has four top-10 finishes in 2014, leads the LPGA rankings in greens in regulation (81 percent) with Nike VR Pro Combo irons in her bag. Wie also played the Nike RZN Black ball featuring innovative Speedlock RZN technology, designed to deliver more distance, better feeland a more consistent, stable ball flight into the wind.

Wie relied on her Nike Method 006 putter to birdie the 12th and 13th holes and secure a two-shot lead for the win in her home state of Hawaii.

"The highlight of this week was to come back home," Wie said. "There wasn't just one moment. From the first tee shot that I made to the last putt, the aloha that I felt from everyone was unbelievable."

Wie wore apparel from Nike's Tour Performance Women's collection and the Nike FI Impact shoe.
