Michelle Wie of the United States celebrates her two shot victory during the final round of the 69th U.S. Women's Open at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club, Course No. 2 in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

Michelle Wie made a move in the Rolex Rankings this week moving up four spots breaking into the top-10 at No. 7 with her historic win at the 2014 U.S. Women's Open conducted by the USGA.

In her 11th appearance at the national championship and making her 38th start in a major, Wie etched her name in the history books at the esteemed Pinehurst No. 2. Growing up in the limelight of big stage golf, the 24-year old from Hawaii has played under lofty expectations her entire career and has now joined the elite company of those who can call themselves ‘major champions.’ With a final-round even-par 70, Wie finished the championship two shots ahead of runner-up and world No. 1 Stacy Lewis.

“I can’t even think straight,” as Wie opened up her press conference. “I’m so happy right now. I’m just unbelievably happy. I’m so honored to be part -- to have my name on the trophy. Just so grateful for everything. I’m just really happy. I’m really thankful, just everything, feeling every single emotion I can right now.
