It took Michelle Wie 38 tries, but she finally won her first golf major championship Sunday at the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open.

The long wait to glory was cause for celebration as Wie was seen drinking adult beverages out of her U.S. Open trophy the night of her win.

The fun apparently continued until dawn as Wie made an appearance on Golf Channel with Damon Hack and said the trophy served as a cuddle buddy after her big victory.

“It still hasn’t sunk in yet,” Wie said. “I still don’t believe it. I definitely slept with my trophy and had a lot of fun.”

Wie was wearing the same pink and green hat from the previous evening, and it really wouldn’t be a surprise if she had just rolled out of bed. Heck, her puppy still was asleep. It really must’ve been a long, fun night for Wie.

Safe partying, Michelle.
