We’re big Michelle Wie fans around these parts. She parties, she seems down to earth even after being a mega-phenom at like age 14. Shes in with the cool golf crowd (Rickie Fowler and co.) and she’s still only 28! I’s good to see her back on top.
Almost four years after that U.S. Open win, Wie is back and she just wrapped up a W in Singapore with this nice 35-footer.
The LPGA is still looking for a face of the tour. They need a name that’s recognizable to the average person. Michelle Wie is about as famous a women’s golfer as we have. Maybe she can keep this thing going. Maybe she can get another major under her belt this year? That’ll get us interested in some women’s golf when the slow summer months roll around. I’d tune in to Wie in contention on a Sunday for a major.
Granted, this was our hope after her U.S. Open and it didn’t quite work out.
Back in the winner’s circle! @themichellewie began Sunday 5 shots behind leader Nelly Korda, but posted a bogey-free 65 (including an exciting birdie on 18) to win the HSBC Women’s World Championship by one. This is her 5th LPGA victory & first since the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open. pic.twitter.com/VZOt7FvWOF
