Wie_640Michelle Wie's breakthrough at the U.S. Women's Open didn't come without drama. After taking a drop on the 16th hole that lead to a double bogey, she headed to the 17th tee with a slimmer-than-slim one stroke lead over #1 player in the world Stacy Lewis. Lewis, who shot a final round 66 to post even par for the tournament, was hitting balls on the range in preparation for an impending playoff when Wie drained a 15-footer for birdie on the par-3 17th, extending her lead to two shots with one hole to play. After a stress-free par on the 18th, Wie walked away with her first major championship which, by the looks of her game, could be the first of many. Here's a complete list of her winning gear from Pinehurst:  DRIVER: Nike Covert 2.0 (9.5°) with UST Mamiya Proforce 69X shaft FAIRWAY WOOD: Nike Covert 2.0 (13°) with UST Mamiya Proforce 75X shaft HYBRIDS: Nike VR_S Covert (17°, 23°) with Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft IRONS: Nike VR Pro Combo Split Cavity (5, 6), Nike VR Pro Blade (7-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold HL shafts WEDGES: Nike VR X3X Dual Wide (52°), Nike VR X3X Toe Sweep (56°, 60°) with True Temper Dynamic Gold HL shafts PUTTER: Nike Method 006 BALL: Nike RZN Black (Photo: Getty Images) BUY your own Nike golf clubs in our online store For more news that golfers everywhere are talking about, follow @si_golf on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our YouTube video channel.
