KAPOLEI, Hawaii – Michelle Wie rallied from four strokes back entering the day to shoot a 5-under-par 67 on Saturday and win the LPGA Lotte Championship.

Wie, 24, who grew up in Honolulu, finished at 14-under 274. She posted her third career victory on the LPGA Tour and the first since the 2010 Canadian Women’s Open.

Wie earned $255,000.

“The aloha that I felt from everyone was unbelievable,” she said.

Third-round leader Angela Stanford (73) was second at 12 under.
