Ah yes, good times.
"But she's only
Now Wie is just an average - repeat AVERAGE - LPGA tour pro.
And maybe the shittiest putter in paid golf.
With a goofy stance.
Yep, she thought up this stance all by herself!
Head down so far you can't see or feel the distance or break while making the stroke. A strain on your back so that practicing your stroke for hours is a one-way ticket to the spine doctor.
And it doesn't even always work on the short ones. Egad.
Ian Poulter had the balls to call her out on it.
I can't watch Michelle Wie putt like this it's horrible. Who has got her putting like that. They need there head testing.

I wonder how long before he feels the need to apologize?
Hopefully, never. Because it was the golf establishment and the mainstream media who were complicit in helping Wie utterly wreck her career on a stupid marketing gimmick.
SHE CAN BEAT THE MEN!
SHE CAN DRIVE IT 300 YARDS!
SINCE SHE'S THIS GOOD NOW, THINK HOW AWESOME SHE'LL BE IN FIVE YEARS!
Golf is complicated, and yet also simple.
Play the game with joy, and because you love it. Nothing else will endure.
Learn to W-I-N at the earliest possible juncture of your career, and never lose that taste.
She did everything wrong, and the writing is now on the wall. Sadly, when somebody with credentials and honesty like Annika Sorenstam say what is obvious, even she feels the need to "tamp things down" with a personal apology.
This girl is a massive fraud and a thankless delusional brat.
And now a putting headcase.
And remember who said all this a long time ago, because I got buried in a mountain of crap 5-6 years ago.
Like the whole Tebow thing people. Stop buying the hype, and start respecting the results, even if they don't fit the prevailing media narrative.
