Grow up, Michelle Wie!

wie_8a.jpgActually, I like Michelle Wie. I kind of feel sorry for her. She’s only 17 and the whole world watches her every move and criticizes everything she does now that she doesn’t look like a kid.

But then I realize, she’s really a very lucky girl. She’s got parents who support her, she’s got immense talent and potential, and she’s going to be a very, very rich girl regardless of how well her golf career goes. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t think she’s going to get a ton of money in endorsement deals? Have a side gig as an athlete model ala Gabrielle Reece or Lisa Leslie?

I hate to jump on the bandwagon with all the Michelle Wie haters (Tim McDonald as one example), but I’ve got to say I’m less than thrilled by her recent behavior.

Michelle, I don’t care if you’re 17 or not. You’ve been playing golf for a long time, please show some sportsmanship. If you say you are injured, ACT like you are injured. Don’t pull out of a tournament you are losing terribly in and then come back shortly to practice some more right in front of the people who you were previously losing to.

Some have said you’re the next Tiger Woods.

Tiger Woods has always been a class act.

Grow up and live up to that standard, please.

Otherwise I might have to join the haters permanently.

  • Michelle Wie seems to be an Annika Sorenstam wannabe – She constantly shoots off her mouth about how good she is and how she’s as good as the men; then she can’t even place in an LPGA event! Annika’s been doing that for years, though she’s NEVER been in a men’s tournament, much less ever placed in one either. Women, stay where you are! Face it, you’re game is not as good or as interesting as the men’s and never will be. As the character frazier Crane once said to his female boss about how men seem to always be on top–“I don’t make the rules; I just enjoy them!”
