Swing Out Sister

Michelle Wie opens up about what goes into her golf bag.

Professional LPGA Tour lady Michelle Wie may exude warm aloha, courtesy her Honolulu upbringing, but the golf whiz is a force to be reckoned with on the green.

As one of the most beautiful women in golf, Wie, 26, continues to wow onlookers for her style and grace since she was 10, when she made history by qualifying for the USGA tournament. At 14, she became the youngest female to go up against gentlemen in a PGA Tour, and then at 24, made a grand slam, snagging first at the U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst in 2014, her first major championship. From staying hydrated with electrolyte-infused water, to tweeting (@themichellewie) and blogging, to jet setting from California to Hawai`i and beyond, Wie is one to watch.

We were lucky enough to correspond with the Punahou alumna to discover what exactly she has in tow when she steps up to the tee. While it’s no surprise that the island native adores accessories from Nike Golf, her main sponsor, other items discussed are equal namesakes, or are inspired by her cherished course essentials.

So, peer inside the putting prodigy’s personally designed KIA Motors America bag (also a sponsor of the golfer), and get inspired to pick up your own iron. And now that we know Wie’s must-haves, the only question lingering is what title she’ll take home next …

I grew up playing Waialae Country Club, and I still enjoy teeing it up there when I am home." Pictured: Nike's dramatic black Vapor Speed Bolt. (Wie is a fan of Nike's Vapor drivers.)
