Michelle Wie wins at home

With six birdies in a final-round 67, Michelle Wie charged to the top of the leaderboard Saturday at the LPGA Lotte Championship and claimed her third win on the tour.

Wie -- just two weeks removed from her runner-up finish in the season's first major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship -- birdied Nos. 1, 5 and 6 to quickly move to 12 under. Two holes later, third-round leader Angela Stanford bogeyed to create a tie atop the leaderboard. Wie took the lead with a birdie at the 13th and needed another at the 14th to stay ahead of Stanford, who closed with 73, then pulled away down the stretch for a two-shot win at 14 under par.

"I think being back home, I think just not putting pressure on myself, just feeling all the support from the people this week, and you know just being patient -- I just had a blast this week," Wie told Golf Channel.
