U.S. Women's Open: All Eyes Turn To Michelle Wie

Ron Sirak sums up what's at stake for Michelle Wie this weekend at the U.S. Women's Open, as she carries a three-stroke lead into round three.

He also touches on the noticeable difference in her perspective and how that bodes well for the final two rounds.

In addition to attitude - her coach David Leadbetter says “That bounce in her step and twinkle in her eye is back.” - Wie is finding fairways with a stinger 3-wood and making putts.

Now in year two of her hunched-over tabletop-putting stance, she has climbed to No. 39 in total putts from a low of No. 124 in 2010.

“I'm just going to go out there and have fun,” Wie said about her attitude going into the weekend. “I'm really grateful for the opportunity that I have. Being in contention, having the clubhouse lead for now, I'm just really excited for the weekend. I'm really excited that I have chance and I'm going to have a lot of fun this weekend.”
