Michelle Wie ready to ride momentum from last win

By Associated Press

DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) A beaming Michelle Wie explained her oversized visor as a necessary new addition after recently discovering wrinkles at age 24, then good-naturedly defended her unique, hunched-over putting stroke because Jack Nicklaus uses it.

Wie is riding high after a comeback win in her native Hawaii last week. Now, she returns to familiar ground in the Bay Area looking to build on her first LPGA Tour victory in nearly four years when she competes in the inaugural Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic just up the freeway from her former college campus at Stanford.

After arriving in town early Monday, Wie took a power nap before visiting Stanford, where she "wanted to hug every single freshman I saw." She enjoyed a tour of new athletic facilities and is determined to represent Nerd Nation.
