I don't get this. I get not liking the hype from when she was 16 but that's on the media not her. She seems like a nice person, humble and polite. Really, what's not to like?

Totally. Even "not liking the hype,"...really? We're that overly sensitive that the media's projected expectations of a teenager cause us to have negative feelings towards someone/thing? Very odd...

Michelle was great on Feherty last season as well - seemed very down to earth & actually funny.     Don't get all the hate ...

Grown men without degrees from Stanford, in fact. Yes.

 

Does she say "ummm" and "you know" fairly often? Yes. But for that matter, I do it more frequently than I would prefer as well.

Yep, It appears that some folks are just that overly sensitive. 

 

I jumped out of my couch when she made that birdie on the 17th green.

See....I pretty much feel totally validated by seeing it.  Normal people can be great athletes and still play VERY hard.

I like to see pictures of the pros drinking from the trophies.....

 

Some of the non-cup type trophies out there I have no interest in seeing what they do, though.

That's not the part I would have been content not to see.

Speaking of the hype, if think it's beyond unfair to say she didn't live up to anything (using the past tense).

 

I learned today that Wie is the same age that Annika Sorenstam was when she won her first US Open, which also happened to be her first major.  Wie has a looooooooong career ahead of her and we need to wait several years before we make any judgments on how it turns out.

 

I agree 'dad.  I think she was terribly poorly served by the adults in her early career and I am very happy that it looks like they may not have permanently ruined her after all.  And, as you say, she is still just 24 and has a lot of years ahead of her.

 

I do understand some of the dislike for her, because although she is humble now (life will do that to you), a lot of those high expectations were largely generated in her early years by her own talk of being the first woman to play in the Masters and her desire to play against the men when she hadn't even won against the women.  But I attribute almost all of that to the adults around her, who were largely looking at her as a ticket on the gravy train rather than caring about the natural development of her golf game.  You have to give her credit for being in that cauldron and coming out as pleasant and attractive to root for as she has.

 

I was surprised at how happy I was that she won.
