The Solheim Cup seemed to be a career turning point for Wie, as she helped lead the U.S. to victory. "Being around the best players and just being in such high-pressure situations, it just taught me so much about handling that situation. And actually I wore my Solheim Cup shoes today. So felt pretty lucky," she said.
