OAK BROOK, Ill. -- Michelle Wie has signed an endorsement deal with McDonald's, with an advertising campaign that will be launched next month in five languages.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed Monday.

Wie is one of the most popular players in women's golf, especially after the 20-year-old from Hawaii won her first LPGA Tour event last year in Mexico. She spends part of her time as a student at Stanford.

The commercial is to be available in two dialects of Chinese, English, Korean and Taglish. Wie also will take part in McDonald's promotions that focus on education.
