Lexi is playing full time.
Just want to point out a few more facts relevant to this. Wie graduated from Stanford in 2012; she's been a full-time professional golfer for nearly two years. Lexi earned LPGA status for the 2012 season as well. So while Lexi has had LPGA status and a full-time schedule for about 4 months longer than Wie, Wie still has six years more experience of competing at that level.
Additionally, @jbishop15 points out that Wie had 2 wins by age 20. Four years later, Wie still has only 2 wins. By your logic she should be winning now since she's at it full time. She's not.
I don't think it's much of a stretch to say that Wie's career has been a disappointment, and Lexi is achieving what we all expected Wie to do. At any rate I'm talking about lady golf, so they're both doing something right.
