In addition to her regular job playing golf on the LPGA Tour, Michelle Wie had herself an event-full Saturday. Call it the Wie Triathlon.
First, she overcame a four-stroke deficit to win the Lotte Championship on her home course, snapping a four-year victory drought. Wie shot a 5-under 67 at Ko Olina Golf Club to beat third-round leader Angela Stanford by two strokes and capture her first LPGA Tour victory since the 2010 CN Canadian Women's Open.
As part of the post-tournament ceremonies, the winner gets up and does a celebratory hula dance in front of the crowd. As confident as Wie looked on the course, she looked every bit uneasy trying to emulate the moves of the two dancers next to her.
Wie then headed out to her own charity event, playing ping pong to raise money for the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association. The LPGA tweeted some photos from the event.

It's not Waffle House, where Bubba Watson celebrated last Sunday after winning the Masters, but for Wie, it was definitely a day to cherish.
