When did being a well educated, gorgeous, talented, athletic winner become synonymous with under-achiever? The golf channel needs to bill every new player as the next Tiger or the next Annika, just to stay in business- but win lose or draw watching Michelle duke it out with the other greats of the L.P.G.A. is a thing of beauty and a beautiful thing to watch for any lover of the game. 

I have nothing against her, and I haven't said anything terrible about her in this thread.  I just gave my opinion on her as a professional and how successful I think she'll be, or won't be.  I'd love to see her do well, because I think she's fun to watch.  I just don't see her winning tons of tournaments.

 

You and I disagree on the term "gorgeous" also.

You should try reading a thread before commenting.

She's played 9 tournaments this year and has 6 top 10's.  Her 3 non top-10's are a 12th, a 13th, and a 16th.

 

Her last four tournaments are a 1st, a 2nd, a 3rd, and a 9th.

 

I might be inclined to argue that she already has returned to her previous form.  She's having a great year, and it's still early.

Nope. I think she's got a bit more in the tank…

What a great win for Michelle Wie! I was very impressed with her composure. She was very analytical and measured in her decision making (despite the errors on 16). She has great control of her approach shots. Tough course, challenge from Stacy Lewis, double bogey on 16, none of this got to her. Hope she keeps it up.

Someone pointed something out to me but I didn't notice - not one "mashed potatoes" or whatever was screamed after shots off the tee. Were there any?

I heard "BABA BOOEY" but that may have been on the Travelers. I was switching back and forth.

Stanford Degree and a US Open victory............I'd say she's pretty damn good at life!

Exactly, a lot of people really second guessed her decision to go to Stanford and not pursue her career in golf, guess she got the last laugh.

I don't think she ever had this as a "previous form". This is better.

She may look like a contortionist doing it, but she's actually learned to putt well.
