Viva la Mexico!

Christina Kim’s victory at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational might not be the biggest story of the LPGA’s blockbuster season, but in my book, it’s certainly the best one, not to mention the most feel-good (tissue, anyone?). It’s also definitely a fan favorite, as Kim wins hearts and minds everywhere she goes, whether it be an exchange on Twitter or an encounter at a tournament — she’s one of the most popular figures in women’s golf.

Michelle Wie gave an emphatic fist pump after making a 20-footer for birdie on the 71st hole of the U.S. Women’s Open because she knew a two-stroke lead would be all she needed heading to the final hole. A par at the last gave the 24-year-old her first major victory, and “a dream come true.”
