See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared? Indeed, the putt at the last broke a four-way logjam at the top but not until Kang and Korda, playing with Henderson in the group behind Wie, missed their own birdie putts on the par-4 18th.
Wie thanked her parents, sponsors and fans for sticking by her in the nearly four-year wait for a title victory, but saved her greatest appreciation for caddie Matt Holloway, who she said had played a key role in helping her stay focused in the chase.
"Winning is everything. I mean, there is no better feeling than when you think you sink that winning putt".
The 28-year-old's last victory was at the 2014 U.S. Open and after subsequent years battling injuries and technical changes, Wie had some unfinished business in Singapore after she led after three rounds a year ago but failed to seal the deal.
"Well, I never really ask Matt to help me read my long putts".
Last year year at this time Wie was 118th, having jumped 61 spots after another strong showing in Singapore.
"It definitely hurts, but that's golf".
It seemed as though the chaotic round was headed for a play-off when Wie's second shot landed just off the green, 45 feet away from the hole. I'm just really proud of myself for pulling myself out of 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". "I've had some injuries, had a really bad time, just lost a lot of self-belief. I heard it from a hole back". I t's been kind of well documented. I felt like I had a good year last year when I built confidence and I just want to keep building confidence from there.
"The nerves got me, maybe", Shin said.
