Michelle Wie claimed her third LPGA Tour title and her first in over three and a half years with victory in the Lotte Championship.
A five-under-par 67 in the final round at the Ko Olina Golf Club in Kapolei, Hawaii, helped the American finish two shots ahead of her compatriot Angela Stanford and three clear of World No.1 Inbee Park.
It was 24-year-old Wie’s first title since winning the CN Canadian Women’s Open in August 2010.
After sealing victory Wie paid tribute to the crowd in her home state of Hawaii.
“I think the highlight really was just to come back home,” she said.
“From the first tee shot that I hit until the last putt that I made, the support that I felt from everyone was unbelievable. I really think a lot of times they willed the ball in. I give a lot of credit to them this week.”
