Michelle Wie's helping hand at Pinehurst

2014 06 450678430

When Michelle Wie watched Martin Kaymer’s emphatic US Open win last week she wasn’t just there to soak up the atmosphere, she also bagged inside information from both Rickie fowler and Keegan Bradley.


The American admitted she loved being a spectator, but that didn’t stop her from planning ahead as she looks to mount her own Women's US Open challenge this week.

“It’s nice to go out there, it was a cool golf nerd experience,” said Wie. “I mean just walking inside the ropes in the US Open, watching it happen, it was pretty cool also to see history being made when Martin won.”

During the final day Wie met with second placed Rickie Fowler and major winner Keegan Bradley, and both players gave their yardage books to the LPGA Tour star.
"This is pretty fresh information. It’s pretty similar conditions to what we’ll play." - Michelle Wie

“Just before I came out for this press conference I laid all the yardage books down and I kind of compared notes,” said Wie. “I think knowledge is key around here. Just knowing where to miss it, where not to miss it. It’s such a unique experience, just to have the information. That’s never really happened before.

“You normally go up to a golf course site and the information would probably be from years ago from when they replayed it or something, but this is pretty fresh information. It’s pretty similar conditions to what we’ll play it. So hopefully it’s going to be very useful. I’m very thankful that they gave it to me for me to use. I’m really happy about it.”
