After winning the US Women’s Open last week, Michelle Wie already has one eye on the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Birkdale in a fortnight’s time.


Wie, who won the amateur medal in 2005 on her debut at the Women’s British Open, finishing tied-third ,said, “I am so happy to have won the US Open and I am definitely going to spend a few days savouring the feeling of winning my very first major. Then I will get down to work seriously preparing for the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Birkdale which is one I have been looking forward to all year.”

The American star feels that the links conditions suit her style of play, and she can’t wait for the action to get underway on July 10.
"I think my game really suits links golf." - Michelle Wie

“There is something so special and unique about the Women’s British Open,” said the 24-year-old. “I love the fact we play on all the famous Open courses and everything feels so steeped in history.”

“I think my game really suits links golf and David Leadbetter, my coach, has helped me so much with all his experience and advice.”

“I had my best finish in the Women’s British Open at Royal Birkdale,” said Wie. “So I know it suits my game and I have some really great memories of playing there. I’ll be heading over there with really high expectations, especially now I’ve proved to myself I can get over the line. It will really be something to be announced on the tee as the US Open champion.”
