Golf-wie Wins First Tournament On Home Soil, At Home - Yahoo Sports

The 24-year-old American fired a five-under 67 at Ko Olina Golf Club in the final round to storm past third round leader Angela Stanford , finishing with a two-stroke advantage on 14-under 274. Stanford's 73 left her at 12-under with South Korea's Inbee Park third at 11-under. The victory was Wie's golfing third of her career but first in America and first since the Canadian Open in 2010. With a boisterous home crowd cheering her on Wie found herself tied for the lead through eight holes before she gained control with a 10-foot birdie on the 12th. Another birdie on the following hole opened up the cushion she maintained for her long-awaited home win.
