Michelle Wie wins the Women's U.S. Open to capture her first major championship
June 22, 2014, 5:15 PM|Pinehurst, N.C.

Michelle Wie finally delivered a performance worthy of the hype that has been heaped on her since she was a teenager..

Wie bounced back from a late mistake at Pinehurst No. 2 to bury a 25-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole, sending the 24-year-old from Hawaii to her first major championship Sunday, a two-shot victory over Stacy Lewis in the U.S. Women's Open.

Wie closed with an even-par 70 and covered her mouth with her hand before thrusting both arms in the air.

Lewis, the No. 1 player in women's golf, made her work for it. She made eight birdies to match the best score of the tournament with a 66, and then was on the practice range preparing for a playoff when her caddie told her Wie had made the sharp-breaking birdie putt on the 17th.

Lewis returned to the 18th green to hug the winner after other players doused Wie with champagne.

What a journey for Wie, who now has four career victories — all in North America, the first on the U.S. mainland — and moved to the top of the LPGA money list after winning the biggest event in women's golf.

She has been one of the biggest stars in women's golf since she was 13 and played in the final group of a major. Her popularity soared along with criticism when she competed against the men on the PGA Tour while still in high school and talked about wanting to play in the Masters.

That seems like a lifetime ago. The 6-foot Wie is all grown up, a Stanford graduate, popular among pros of both genders and now a major champion.

“Oh my God, I can't believe this is happening,” Wie said.

It almost didn't. Just like her so much of her life, the path included a sharp twist no one saw coming. Wie started the final round tied with Amy Yang, took the lead when Yang made double bogey on No. 2 and didn't let anyone catch her the rest of the day.

In trouble on the tough fourth hole, she got up-and-down from 135 yards with a shot into 3 feet. Right when Lewis was making a big run, Wie answered by ripping a drive on the shortened par-5 10th and hitting a cut 8-iron into 10 feet for eagle and a four-shot lead.

She had not made a bogey since the first hole — and then it all nearly unraveled.

From a fairway bunker on the 16th, holding a three-shot lead, she stayed aggressive and hit hybrid from the sand. After a three-minute search, the ball was found in a wiregrass bush that caused her to take a penalty drop behind her in the fairway. She chipped on to about 35 feet and rapped her bogey putt 5 feet past the hole.

Miss it and she would be tied.

Bent over in that table-top putting stance, she poured it in to avoid her first three-putt of the week. Smiling as she left the green, even though her lead was down to one, Wie hit 8-iron safely on the 17th green and holed the tough birdie putt. She pumped her fist, then slammed it twice in succession, a determination rarely seen when she was contending for majors nearly a decade ago as a teen prodigy

It doesn't hurt that she's good looking. The endorsement contracts should be following soon.

“Obviously, there are moments of doubt in there,” Wie said. “But obviously, I had so many people surrounding me. They never lost faith in me. That's pushed me forward.”

Wie finished at 2-under 278, the only player to beat par in the second week of championship golf at Pinehurst. Martin Kaymer won by eight shots last week at 9-under 271, the second-lowest score in U.S. Open history.

Dan Fournier

2014 United States Senior Long Drive Championships - 2014 Grand Champion  & 2015 Legends Champion

Dan Fournier - Grand Champion Champion - Longest Drive 344 - Canada

I’m a golfer since age 45  and at this time I’m a 7 handicap.  I started the long drive competition 2012 at age 57 when I  retired from my job at Air Canada, I participated in my first long drive event in Québec. It was my first competition and I wasn’t ready.  I had only two drivers and I broke one at the warm up 5 minutes before they started the event.  I continued with my nine degree driver and I finished 14th  in the grand champion division.  In 2013 I did better at Mesquite.  I finished in 6 place in 2014.  2014 was my best year with my win at Decatur (USSLD) in the grand champion division and I finished 3rd at Mesquite.  

My wife and I have been married for 25 years and I have two children.  My son  and my daughter go at the same university.  Ray I hope I can see you again at Decatur with all the other competitors.

Best Regards,
Daniel Fournier

Go to  for the 2014 US Senior Open Long Drive Championships.

United States Senior Open Long Drive Championship Finals


 America's first annual United States Senior Long Drive Championships event was held in Decatur, Illinois June 21, 2014.  The event was a huge success with competitors from all over the US and Canada.  Many of the competitors were world champions sometime in their career.  

This years event had three senior divisions:  Legends age 60 and over, the Grand Champion age 55 and over and the Super Senior division age 50 and over.  It was a beautiful day for this event until the final Super Senior Championship round when a storm came into the area causing rain and high head and cross winds.  

Except for the storm at the end the contest, the first United States Senior Long Drive Championships was enjoyed by all and went off almost perfect.  Almost everyone competing said the event one of the best long drive contests they have ever entered.  The winners of the three USSLD Championship division were from Oregon, Missouri and Canada.  

The winner of the Legends division was Dixon Spear with a drive of 319 yards bettering former World Champion Steve Griffith by a little more than a yard in the championship round.  Dixon is from Portland, Oregon.  The winner of the Grand Champion division was Dan Fournier with a championship round drive of 344 yards.  Dan is from Quebec, Canada.  The winner of the Super Senior division was John Cyrus with a championship round drive of 305 yards in horrible conditions.  John earlier hit a drive over 360 yards which indicates just how bad the weather changed in the Championship round.    John is from Mount Vernon, Missouri.  

Below are the complete results of each division events from beginning to end with numbers, group photos and the Champions of each division.  

Who will be next year's winner of the United States Senior Long Drive championships?  All seniors 45 and over who can hit it long should make this an annual event to attend.  You could be the next United States Senior Long Drive Champion.

Seniors over 45 tell all your friends about this annual tournament and start planning and preparing for next year's event.  Next year we would like to add an over 45, over 65 and over 70 division.  It will all depend on getting the word out to as many senior golfers as possible.

Each age division must have a minimum of 8 competitors before a championship event will be scheduled.  This is what every senior golfer has wanted to see for years.  The RE/MAX is great for the young age but this is what the senior golfer has been looking for.  We have created this new event and it is now up to seniors to promote it.
