Michelle Wie's Winning Gear at 2014 U.S. Women's Open

Michelle 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

What's in Michelle Wie's golf bag?

Posted at 9:37 AM by David Dusek

Michelle_wies_golf_clubs This week, both the PGA and LPGA tours are conducting qualifying schools. They are each five-day, While the men play 108 holes, the ladies' is a 90-hole pressure cookers that determine who will have a chance to compete on golf's biggest stages in 2009, and who will spend another season in the minor leagues.

The most-watched player at either Q-School is going to be Michelle Wie. Since she turned pro at age 15 in October 2005, she has failed to win a golf tournament, and the public's fascination with her has faded. If she finishes in the top 20 this week and gets her card, all that will change.

For a complete look at the career highs and lows of Michelle Wie, check out our new Michelle Wie special section.

From an equipment standpoint, Wie is playing with 14 Nike clubs this week. During the summer she had played with a Callaway FT fairway wood, but it has been replaced with a Nike SasQuatch II.

Also worth noting is Wie's prototype Nike putter, which appears to be the same putter Paul Casey switched to earlier this season. It is a traditional heel-toe weighted design with a plumber's neck and a series of red, elevated ridges running across the face. When I asked Nike about the putter in a meeting recently, company representatives would not comment about it.

The ridges may be designed to grip the ball and start it rolling more quickly along the ground, or they could be made from a material that enhances feel. Nike reps did say that they have no plans to release a putter to the public with this technology any time soon.

Here's a complete list of the clubs in it:
Driver:                    Nike SQ Sumo 5000 (7.5°)
Fairway woods:     Nike SasQuatch II (15°, 19°)
Irons:                      Nike Victory Red TW Forged Blades (4-PW)
Wedges:                 Nike Victory Red (52°, 56°, 60°)
Putter:                    Nike prototype
Ball:                        Nike One Platinum
