LPGA putting leader Michelle Wie back inside top 15 of Rolex Rankings

"'That was a Solheim fist pump, '" Wie, who quoted last week's LPGA Tour victor, Jessica Korda, said after drilling the 35-footer from the fringe for her first W since the 2014 U.S. Women's Open and punching the air with her clenched right hand.

It looked as though Korda, playing in the last flight of the day, would force a play-off; her superb approach to the 18th leaving her with a five-foot birdie putt, but it wasn't to be.

She's now second on the money list behind Jin Young Ko with $277,480 and fourth in scoring (69.00). There's going to be another feeling like this. It's this feeling that makes you practice. Please make sure to click through to get the maximum effect. "It's just everything. Winning's everything". "It's been kind of well documented", Wie said.

"My caddie did a great job of keeping me in the game and keeping me entertained throughout the round".

"But I'm just really proud of myself for pulling myself out of it".

"I kind of came with a slight chip on my shoulder in the morning, and I knew I had to shoot low to even have a chance, and everyone played great today".

"Everyone was really clustered up there on the leaderboard". I've had some injuries, had a really bad year, just lost a lot of confidence.

Here's a look at what's now in the American's bag...

"I had a bunch of putts that were really close and a lot of them lipped and burned edges".

She said: "Definitely, my team and my family and my friends have pulled me out of the hard times and kept me going". Because after four days and 17,681 shots at the HSBC Women's World Championship, just two shots late on Sunday will decide it.

"But there was a little old hole right in front in line with it and we're either going to go above it or below it, and he's like reading it, and he's like, 'Oh, is it above it or below it? I just want to keep playing the best I can, trying the hardest I can and trying to become the best player that I can be".

"Solheim Cup means the world to me", Wie told reporters back in 2013.

Michelle Wie says she wanted revenge after failing to win previous year.
