One of the most in­flu­en­tial play­ers in the game, Wie joins an out­stand­ing list of young, proven winners on Team Call­away. A 27-year-old Hawaii na­tive, Wie has been in the spot­light since the age of 10, when she be­came at the time the youngest player to qual­ify for a USGA am­a­teur cham­pi­onship. At 13, she be­came the youngest player ever, male or fe­male, to win a USGA adult event at the 2003 Women's Am­a­teur Public Links and the youngest player to ever make an LPGA cut. At 14, she be­came the youngest fe­male ever to play in a PGA Tour event at the Sony Open, and at 16 she turned pro­fes­sional. De­spite be­ing one of the most rec­og­nized play­ers in the game al­ready, Michelle chose to at­tend Stan­ford Univer­sity in ad­di­tion to com­pet­ing pro­fes­sion­ally. Since play­ing full-time on the LPGA Tour, Wie has won 4 times, high­lighted by her ma­jor vic­tory at the U.S. Women's open, been among the top-ranked play­ers in the world, and com­peted on 4 U.S. Sol­heim Cup teams. She's also known for be­ing one of the long­est hit­ters on the Tour, and one of its big­gest stars both in­side the ropes and while en­gag­ing her fans through so­cial me­dia. As a Full Call­away Staffer, Michelle will use Call­away clubs, balls and an Odyssey Put­ter.
