SUGAR GROVE, Ill. -- Michelle Wie saw the masses, heard the chants and knew this was going to be a special day no matter where her shots landed.
Her performance was mostly good. The experience was better.
Wie got her first taste of Solheim Cup play on Friday and was still savoring it long after she left the course.
"I think this was the most fun I've ever had playing," she said. "It was just unbelievable -- the crowd, the cheers, everything about it. It was the most fun I've ever had on the golf course."
Wie has competed in majors and gone up against the men, but those experiences didn't compare to this. Adding to the fun was the fact that Wie had a decent round, with four birdies before a bumpy finish that left her and Morgan Pressel halved with Women's British Open champion Catriona Matthew and Maria Hjorth in the morning fourball session.
