Although her official name is Michelle Sung Wie West, most people call her Michelle Wie. She was born on 11th October 1989, and currently, she is a professional golfer, playing on LPGA.
Unlike many other golfers, she began playing the sport at a very tender age of 4 years. And when she clocked ten years, she qualified for the USGA amateur championship. That earned her the title of the youngest player to have qualified for the USGA.
Apart from that victory, she became the youngest champion of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links and the youngest to qualify for the LPGA Tour events.

In 2002 she emerged top in the Hawaii State Open Women’s Division. In addition, she also participated and won many other local golf events in Hawaii.
In 2005 shortly before her 16th birthday Michelle turned pro. However, it wasn’t until 2014 that she scooped her first major golf championship victory in the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open.
All her professional life, she scooped five victories. That includes one major championship win and four victories in LPGA Tour.
Her best position in the Women’s World Golf Rankings was in 2014, where she climbed to the 6th position. Otherwise, she has been in the top 10 in 2009 and 2010.
So what does Michelle Wie WITB has that sets her apart from Stacy Lewis WITB? Read on to find out.
Michelle Wie WITB
Driver: Callaway Epic Speed (9°, Fujikura Speeder 661 Evolution Shaft)
Michelle Wie WITB and Marc Leishman WITB all contain Callaway clubs. The Callaway Epic Speed, like its name implies, delivers tremendous ball speed. It features a blend of Jailbreak and A.I. Speed Frame that boosts the horizontal and torsional stability of the driver.
By extension, it also enhances speed on the entire face as wells as forgiveness. Further, it employs the A.I. engineered Flash Face SS21 to back up the jailbreak technology in terms of forgiveness and speed on a vast area of the face.
The driver similarly has a high MOI and stability, thanks to the weight-saving Triaxial carbon composite on the crown. And to crown its epic speed, the head features an advanced aerodynamic shape.
3-wood: Callaway Epic Speed (15°, Mitsubishi Diamana TB 60 Shaft)
In these fairway woods, Callaway uses the Jailbreak bar behind the club face that joins the crown and sole. By so doing, it stiffens the face, thereby improving its speed propulsion capability.
Also, the angling of the bars to spread out further improves speed performance on a wide surface of the speed.
So, when you need the fairway woods that help maximize speed and distance off the tee, the Epic speed delivers. Besides compared to the slightly oversize head of the Epic Max, Epic Speed has an alluring look.
5-wood: Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero (19°, Project X Hzrdus 60 Shaft)
The Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero is easy to distinguish by its compact head and dual interchangeable weights. That allows for the ability of the golfer to fine-tune the launch angle and spin.
To maximize ball speed, the fairway wood mixes the A.I. engineered Flash Face SS20 with the C300 maraging steel. It further boosts speed by the flexing of the Face Cup. Next, a space-saving T2C Triaxial Carbon on the crown then helps to redistribute weight on the head and thus boost its performance.
Looking at its leading edge’s geometry, it has all the features that optimize it for better launch and performance. When you need incredible speed and distance, the hot face of the Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero won’t fail you, provided you fine-tune the weights right.
7-wood: Callaway Mavrik (21°, Project X Hzrdus Yellow 70 Shaft)
First, it features an improvement on the previous Face Flash technology. That is the blend of sturdy maraging C300 steel, A.I. designed Flash Face SS20, and face cup technologies. Therefore the Mavrik fairway wood possesses optimized ball speed performance.
Further, the use of lightweight triaxial carbon and vertically lying titanium bars, also enhance the club’s performance. A stationary weight on the sole helps achieve a low center of gravity on the back. Consequently the club delivers a flatter trajectory and tremendous distance.
For the fairway wood that delivers a high flatter trajectory, impeccable distance, and dash of forgiveness, the Callaway Mavrik qualifies.
11-wood: Callaway Rogue (25°, Project X Hzrdus Yellow 70 Shaft)
Its tall face accommodates off-center hits and makes up for easy alignment of the face. The mid-sized head and the solid feel it generates during impact are satisfying. Except for the slightly dissatisfying sound, its level of forgiveness and distance performance is impressive.
Callaway Mavrik Pro (6)
From its design, it mixes compact shape, minimal offset, and a thin top line. So it’s the iron that excels in control and workability.
It achieves such benefits by tapping several technologies such as infused tungsten weights and the use of urethane microspheres to absorb unwarranted vibrations. Also, Callaway hasn’t forgotten the artificial intelligence planned flash face that helps optimize speed and spin.
Callaway Apex Pro 21 (7-PW, Nippon NS Pro Mosu 950 GH Shafts)
The iron targets single-digit handicappers. Its use of an artificial intelligence structured flash face cup brings high correlation in every iron. As a result, the club offers swift ball speed and better spin robustness.
Besides, the use of urethane microspheres significantly improves its feel and sound performance. At the same time, its hollow body design and tungsten energy core mean better launching and forgiveness of the iron.
Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy Forged, (52°, 56°, 60°, Nippon NS Pro Mosu 950 GH Shafts)
Concerning wedges, Wies borrows from Thomas Pieters WITB, Callaway Mack Daddy Forged. The wedge has a unique shape and progressive center of gravity. Therefore it accords higher lofts and more control on the trajectory.
An improved groove configuration increases its spin. And since it taps on 1025C steel, it delivers an impressive feel and consistency in performance.
Putter: Odyssey Toulon Design Memphis
The putter employs a far-reaching diamond milled pattern on the club’s face. In effect, the milling harnesses vibrations and thereby improving the club’s feel, sound, and spin. Apart from the unique grooves, it also thrives in the look, thanks to its rounded and minimalist design.
Golf Ball: Callaway Chrome Soft X20 Triple Track
It presents reengineered cover system. The ball employs Triple Track technology to perfect alignment and putting precision. Further, its innovative large high-speed core improves speed and distance in the long game.
Moreover, its use of a highly resilient cover to encase the soft interior mantle delivers in ball speed and spin. Golfers that need enhanced distance, flat trajectories, better aerodynamics, and control of the short game will find it a real asset.
Although she relies exclusively on Callaway clubs, Michelle Wie WITB picks models that match her game style. The clubs help showcase her best skills in the sport and, therefore, realize several rounds of victories. So if you have a few clubs you need to replace, borrow ideas from her.
