Michelle Wie wins HSBC Women’s World Championship

What started as a pursuit of history ended up as a finish for the history books. Nelly Korda made a valiant effort to join her sister Jessica Korda in becoming only the second siblings to win on the LPGA but instead Michelle Wie singed the Sentosa Golf Club Tanjong Course in Singapore with a closing-round 65 on Sunday to win the HSBC Women’s World Championship by one stroke over Korda, Danielle Kang, Brooke Henderson and Jenny Shin.

Wie, playing a hole in front of Korda, Kang and Henderson and a hole behind Shin, stroked a 35-foot birdie putt from the fringe that caught the low lip and curled in to get her fifth LPGA victory and first since the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open, 1,365 days ago. Kang’s 20-footer to tie Wie missed then Korda left an 8-footer a tad low, giving Wie a win for which she had waited a long time.
