She can and did! Great win in her home course.

She's now won three times. Oddly, never on the Continental U.S., yet twice in North America and never twice in the same country.

She's having a good year.

Outstanding. I think she moves the needle. Maybe not Tiger levels, but LPGA is exciting when she's striking it well. Thrilled for her. How cool to win on the course where you grew up. She played fearlessly on the back nine.

So awesome to see that she won. Hopefully her and Lexie and Ko compete for a decade or two

Absolutely. I found myself enthralled with the Dinah Shire a couple of weeks ago because of her, and actually watched the first round of this tournament because they featured her. Missed today though because I was playing. ;). Congrats Michelle!!

Great win for her career...but I don't think she's moving any needles.

Hopefully Michelle and Lexi will keep playing well, think it would be great for the tour and women's golf in general.

#1 in GIR for 2014 so far. That's pretty good form, but we will see if she can keep the momentum rolling. I think April 2014, we may have the answer for the thread's initial question from June 2012: "Will she return to her previous form ?"

Wie was not into it at all. Her face was like "are we done yet?" from the start. I'm assuming she's not a dancer.

She looked she was having a lot of fun doing this to me.

Yeah?  Maybe I misread.  I thought it looked like an embarrassed smile, but I was only guessing based on body language, and if there is one thing that I am most certainly NOT an expert in ... it's reading females. :beer:

The hula is a very spiritual dance for native Hawaiians; many non-natives who spent their entire lives in Hawaii and embraced the culture as their own feel the same way.  It's not so much a dance as it is a form of expression.  I'd classify Wie as a non-native who is true kama'aina and probably takes these things very personally.

 

Anywho...

 

Michelle's ball striking is pretty amazing this year.  You realize how good she's been hitting it when you think about all the really short putts she has missed over the last few events, yet she's held a Sunday lead and nearly won more than once prior to this week.  Glad she could finally make it happen.

I was just totally focused on the one on the left an barely noticed whether Michelle was doing it right!  :-D

Moving the needle? Maybe a little, keep winning and she will start to draw attention.

For me, Michelle playing made me not only tune in, but watch it over the men this week. A final round with Wie is more interesting to me than a 3rd round of the tournament after the Masters...
