"This year, more so than any other year, it's more special to me just because of what I had to do to get here," Wie said. "I clawed my way up here. I made my way on to the team. And for me this year it's just so much more special because it's already a victory for me just to be here, just to be part of this experience."
"It's so gorgeous here," said Wie, who has not won since claiming the U.S Women's Open at Pinehurst in 2014. "When the weather is nice, it almost felt like I was playing back home in Hawaii with the views and everything. I feel like I got extremely lucky with the conditions out there."
