HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Michelle Wie is trying her hand at acting with a cameo appearance on the CBS show "Hawaii Five-0" Friday night.
The Punahou alumna and LPGA star shot the scene while in Hawaii in December. She will play herself on a golf course during a charity event, giving Steve McGarrett – played by Alex O'Loughlin -- some advice on how to beat Lou Grover – played by Chi McBride.
"I was so flattered and really excited about it," Wie told USA TODAY. "The entire shoot was impressive – the actors, the crew, just everything. The actors were so polished and smooth in their delivery."
Daniel Dae Kim – who plays Chin Ho Kelly on the show and is a friend of Wie's – approached her for the part. He watched Wie win her first major championship at last year's U.S. Women's Open at Pinhurst No. 2. in North Carolina.
"Hawaii Five-0" will air Friday at 8 p.m. on KGMB.
