The 23-year-old has plenty of fans in the United States, but she will play in front her South Korean fan base when she begins play in the LPGA Hana Bank Championship on Oct. 19.
Wie was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but her parents are originally from South Korea.
The 6-foot Wie will look to have a strong performance in the tournament and get back to the form she had as a teenage prodigy. The recent Stanford graduate shocked the golf world when she became the youngest golfer to play in a PGA tour event at the age of 14.
