Michelle Wie is playing in her second Solheim Cup but feels more like a rookie since it will be her first time playing on European soil. Wie still looks back at memories of a match she had with Christina Kim against the Europeans in 2009 to help her when facing a tough opponent.

Q. How different is it feeling this year compared to when you were a complete rookie? Are you more relaxed or what is the difference?
MICHELLE WIE: I think it’s kind of a feeling for me when I was a freshman in high school, kind of that buttery, nervous feeling, really not sure, kind of playing with the big girls.

Now it feels like I’m a sophomore where you see the younger kids come in, but at the same time you’re not a veteran at these things. It’s still new for me, especially me being the first time in Europe, I feel like a rookie.

Everything’s a new experience. I think every time you never know what to expect, and it’s just a wave of excitement. I’m really excited to see what’s going to happen this week.

Q. Could I ask you for your favorite and/or most significant Solheim Cup moment? In the heat of battle and chips are down, maybe?

MICHELLE WIE: Well, of all the Solheims that I’ve played (laughing). I think personally for me, there is always that story that we tell in the team room where things don’t go as well, we’re kind of losing, then your teammate comes in and you kind of get a little hurrah moment and go. For us, I think playing with Christina, first hole, I think we were playing Sophie ‑‑
CHRISTINA KIM: No, Helen.
MICHELLE WIE: Helen chipped in on the first hole, and we got there on the second hole and they eagled, didn’t they?
CHRISTINA KIM: No, we tied them on the second hole.
MICHELLE WIE: We barely tied them. They’re like chip in, chip in, eagle. Kind of all of a sudden we’re like two or three down, and I’m kind of like what the hell is happening? What are we going to have to do here?

Christina came up, and we were going like I guess this is how the day’s going. I think for me it was that turn around moment where we can make a down moment and then kind of move forward from there. I think that was for me kind of an amazing feeling that we can move forward. I feel that I use that in a lot of tournaments, I guess.
