This month, CNN’s ‘Leading Women’ features Michelle Wie, one of the world’s most recognizable female golfers and the current U.S. Women's Open Golf Champion. She talks to CNN’s Kristie Lu Stout about role models, how she handles criticism, and the future of women in golf. Wie also discusses the confidence she gained from her first major win at the U.S. Open in 2014 describing the victory as “pure happiness.” Wie says she is determined to win more majors and feels that with the right balance of motivation and hard work she can be world number one: “Hopefully the best is yet to come.”
