Early years

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii to Korean-born parents, Wie began playing golf at the age of four.

In 2001, at the age of 11,[4] she won both the Hawaii State Women’s Stroke Play Championship and the Jennie K. Wilson Women’s Invitational, the oldest and most prestigious women’s amateur tournament in Hawaii.

2005: Turning pro

Wie has long attracted attention for her height, which reached 6 foot 1 inch by her mid teens. Both her parents are above average height: her mother, Hyun Kyong is 5 ft 7 and her father is 6 ft 2 inches. Garnering equal attention is the rare length of her drives as well as the form of her golf swing. When Wie was fourteen, professional golfer Ernie Els remarked, "Give her another couple years to get stronger, she can play on the PGA Tour." At sixteen, Wie had an average drive of about 280 yards. Her size and use of Els as a model have led sports media to call her The Big Wiesy, a play on Els' nickname of The Big Easy. Fred Couples said, "When you see her hit a golf ball … there's nothing that prepares you for it. It's just the scariest thing you've ever seen." Arnold Palmer stated in 2003 that "she's probably going to influence the golfing scene as much as Tiger, or more. She's going to attract people that even Tiger didn't attract, young people, both boys and girls, and families."

Wie, unlike almost every other professional golfer, male or female, is not a member of any professional tour. Prior to her 18th birthday in October 2007, she was not eligible to attempt to join the LPGA Tour, unless she petitioned for an exception as some players, including Morgan Pressel and Aree Song had done, both at age 17.

In February 2006, the initial Rolex World Golf Rankings placed Wie third in the world, behind Annika Sörenstam and Paula Creamer. As of July 31, 2006, Wie ranked second behind Sörenstam. To remain in the rankings, she needed to accumulate a minimum of 15 world-wide professional women's tournaments in the preceding twenty-four months. She dropped off the rankings for a brief time during the spring of 2006. However, the procedure for calculating the Rolex Rankings was revised, effective immediately, on August 3, 2006. The "minimum tournament" requirement was eliminated, but a minimum divisor of 35 tournaments for calculating a player's ranking was added, meaning that any player who had accumulated points in fewer than 35 tournaments would have her ranking calculated as if she had played in 35. After the change, Wie's ranking dropped to 7th.[10] // The Womens World Golf Rankings, also known for sponsorship reasons as the Rolex Rankings were introduced in February 2006. ...   (born October 9, 1970) is a Swedish professional golfer. ...

On May 16, according to the sponsoring United States Golf Association, Wie was the first female medalist in a local qualifier for the Men's U.S. Open. Weeks later, she competed against 152 players (135 professionals, including 48 PGA Tour players) in the final stage of U.S. Open qualifying at Summit, NJ vying for one of 16 available spots in the men's U.S. Open at Winged Foot G.C. Wie finished 59th and did not advance. However, the person she beat by 2 strokes in her local qualifier advanced in the Hawaii final stage qualifier. Wie said the reason she did not compete in the easier Hawaii qualifier was that the NJ qualifier was close to the LPGA Championship that week. Competing in the Hawaii qualifier would mean a no show at the LPGA.

July saw Wie play in the PGA John Deere Classic finishing the first round at 6 over par. On day two, her score rose to 8 over par for the tournament and 10 shots above the projected cut line. She withdrew from the tournament after the 9th hole, citing heat exhaustion.[14] Two weeks later, she returned to the LPGA Tour, finishing in a tie for second at the Evian Masters, where she finished one stroke off the lead, and then finished tied for 26th at the Weetabix British Open, where she drew controversy again for grounding her club in a bunker, resulting in a two-stroke penalty.[13] In a post-round interview, Wie said that she was not familiar with the rules and "knew the rule wrong."[15] The John Deere Classic is an American professional golf event which is on the PGA TOUR schedule. ...

With the conclusion of the Casio tournament, Wie had played 14 consecutive rounds of tournament golf without breaking par – eight on the LPGA Tour, two on the European Tour, two on the PGA Tour and two on the Japan Golf Tour.[13]


By the end of 2006, her first full year as a professional, she had missed the cut in 11 out of 12 tries against men, and remained winless in all 33 professional women's tournaments she had entered, the last 9 as a professional. [13] In her 33 starts in LPGA events, she played 23 LPGA events since the start of 2004 up to end of 2006, and had 19 top-20 finishes in those 23 events, with three finishes outside the top 20 and one disqualification when in 4th position.[13]


2007

In January Wie accepted her fourth consecutive sponsor's exemption to the PGA Tour's Sony Open in Hawaii. She missed the cut by 14 strokes, finishing third from last in the 144-player field, 25 strokes behind the second-round leader.


Wie's next competition was at the LPGA's Ginn Tribute Hosted by Annika. After a four-month absence and reported injuries to both wrists, Wie shot 14-over par through 16 holes in the first round on May 31 before withdrawing.[19] Prior to the withdrawal, LPGA rules officials were seen discussing the Rule of 88, which states that a non-LPGA member who shoots a score of 88 is forced to withdraw and is subsequently banned from LPGA co-sponsored events for the remainder of the year. Neither Wie nor the LPGA officials stated that her withdrawal was in response to the Rule of 88 and Wie said that she withdrew because she "tweaked [her] wrist in the middle of the round a bit."[20][21] Some observers questioned this claim. One of Wie's playing partners, Alena Sharp, said, "She wasn't holding her wrist. I think she just had a bad day. If it was her wrist, why wait until the last two holes [to withdraw]?"[22] Her other playing partner Janice Moodie confirmed that Wie had indeed tweaked her wrist. Moodie stated that she heard Wie say "Ouch!" after hitting her tee shot on the first hole, which was the group's 10th of the day. Wie said that was when she began feeling the pain. Moodie said "She didn't swing as hard from that point on." Moodie also added, "She was great to play with. Very friendly and respectful."[23] Both Sharp and Wie's other playing partner, Janice Moodie, also questioned the involvement of Wie's father, B.J., who they said appeared to give Wie advice during the course of play which is against the rules and would result in a two-stroke penalty. However, after Wie withdrew, this became a moot point. [24] Following her withdrawal on from the Ginn Tribute, Wie was seen two days later practicing at the site of the LPGA Championship in Bulle Rock, Maryland, which drew criticism from Ginn Tribute host Annika Sörenstam who said, "I just feel there's a little bit of lack of respect and class just to kind of leave a tournament like that and come out and practice here."[25] The Ginn Tribute hosted by Annika is a golf tournament for professional female golfers on the LPGA Tour. ...

The next week, Wie played in the LPGA championship, a major on the LPGA tour. After a 2nd round 74, she made the cut. Wie slumped to an 83 in her third round. After a late decision whether she would participate in the 4th round citing her injury again, she decided to play, shooting a 4th round 79.[26] Although finishing last of those who made the cut, 35 strokes behind the eventual winner, she continued her run of cuts made at LPGA majors which went to 13 cuts made in 13 LPGA majors played. [13]


At the end of June, Wie entered the US Women's Open but withdrew midway through the second round after hitting her second shot out of the rough on the 10th hole. Her tournament score through 27 holes was 17-over par, 22 strokes behind the second-round leader. She cited a wrist injury as the reason for withdrawing. [27][28]


At the Evian Masters played July 26-20 , Wie broke her year-long streak of 24 consecutive rounds at or over par by shooting a second-round one-under par 71 that left her in a tie for 28th half-way through the tournament. But she ballooned to a tie for 69th, after shooting 12 over par in the third round. She eventually ended the tournament 20 strokes behind winner Natalie Gulbis in third from last place of those who made the cut.

Also in December 2007, Wie's coach, David Leadbetter had said that Wie planned to play in the 2008 SBS Open and/or the Fields Open in Hawaii the following week. When, on January 15, 2008, it was announced that she also did not receive an exemption to the SBS Open at Turtle Bay on the LPGA Tour beginning February 14,[31] an event at which she had finished second in 2005.

Education

Wie graduated from Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii in June 2007.[46] On December 19, 2006, she announced that she would be attending Stanford University in the fall of 2007.[47]. She enrolled in September of 2007 as a freshman.[48][49] After attending Stanford for the fall 2007 and winter 2008 quarters of her freshman year, Wie took a leave of absence at the start of the spring 2008 quarter.[50] The school was originally called Oahu College, and the main gate at the corner of Wilder and Punahou Street reflects this. ... Stanford redirects here. ...


Because she is a professional golfer, Wie is not eligible under NCAA rules to play for Stanford's golf team. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA, often said NC-Double-A) is a voluntary association of about 1200 institutions, conferences, organizations and individuals that organizes the athletics programs of many colleges and universities in the United States. ... Having no offical mascot, the athletic teams at Stanford University are referred to as Stanford Cardinal. ...


Personal life

As of March 24, 2008, Wie was dating Stanford men's basketball star Robin Lopez, according to a sportsillustrated.com profile of Lopez and his brother. [51] In an April 28, 2008 interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Wie denied reports that the two were dating, saying, "We're just friends. The whole thing kind of blew up and we were just talking to each other."[52] The Orlando Sentinel is the primary newspaper of the Orlando, Florida region. ...


Criticism and controversy

Poor performance in men's events

Observers of golf have criticized Wie's efforts to play in PGA Tour events through sponsors' exemptions. Wie has made only one cut in a men's tournament, and has made no cuts on the PGA Tour. After missing the cut at the 2007 Sony Open by 14 shots, many sports critics began to doubt whether she ever will.[53] Following Wie's poor performance at the 2007 Sony Open in Hawaii, AP golf writer Doug Ferguson suggested that her nickname be changed from "the Big Wiesy" to a more appropriate moniker, "the Big Queasy."[54] [55]


Use of exemptions

Professional golfers, fans, and media critics have remarked that allowing Wie to compete in PGA events takes away opportunities from more deserving golfers.[56][57][58] However, a tournament sponsor has a maximum of only four completely unrestricted exemptions available, and those exemptions are often used to invite players (including amateurs) who can increase ticket sales and tournament visibility. The first four exemptions offered by a sponsor must be offered to PGA Tour players or other competitive players.[59] By late 2007, the criticism over the use of exemptions had extended to Wie's participation in women's events on the LPGA Tour as well. Wie declined to enter LPGA Tour qualifying school after turning 18 and therefore would have to depend on sponsor exemptions to play in future LPGA tournaments. This decision drew criticism from golf fans and commentators.[60] [61]


Caddie turnover

Wie has employed at least nine caddies since her father stopped caddying for her in 2004. She created controversy when, after finishing tied for 26th at the 2006 British Open, her caddie Greg Johnston was fired over the phone by Wie's then-agent Ross Berlin. Johnston said he was "surprised and disappointed" at the firing and at the fact that "no one named Wie gave me the news."[62] Wie employed several other professional caddies after Johnston, and also returned to using her father for the remainder of the 2007 season parting ways with caddie David Clarke after she missed the cut at that year's British Open. An individual can face termination of employment, or job loss, for one of many reasons. ...


Inappropriate clothing

Some fans and media have commented that Wie has increasingly dressed in inappropriate clothing during golf tournaments. These criticisms began in the summer of 2004 when Wie was 14 years old and increased after Wie began wearing Nike-provided clothing in 2006.[63] [64]


2007 wrist injury

In the first week of February 2007, it was reported that Wie hurt her left wrist in a fall while running, though when family members acting as her spokespeople were asked by the media, they declined either to give any details on the nature of the injury, other than to report that she was wearing a hard cast,[19] or to state what treatment was done, citing privacy.[65] Initially, her public relations staff reported that she would be away from golf for 4 to 6 weeks[66] but this stretched until the end of May. In response to the lack of information and prolonged absence, some golf fans and LPGA players, including Brittany Lincicome, questioned whether Wie and her parents had fabricated the injury in order to give her a reason to take a break from golf.[67] [68] [69] Further questions were raised about Wie's wrist injury when, in April 2008, she announced that she actually had three broken bones in her wrist[52], contradicting her agent's March 2007 announcement that the wrist was not broken.[70] cast A cast is a shell, frequently made from plaster, encasing a limb (or, in some cases, large portions of the body) to hold a broken bone (or bones) in place until it has healed. ...

This article or section includes a list of works cited but its sources remain unclear because it lacks in-text citations. ...


2007 Ginn Tribute withdrawal

Further questions were raised about her wrist injury claim after Wie's withdrawal from the Ginn Tribute Hosted by Annika in May 2007. With a score of 14 over par after 16 holes in round one on the par 72 course, Wie was in danger of being banned from all LPGA-sponsored tournaments for the rest of the year if her score reached 88, according to the LPGA's Rule of 88. LPGA officials were seen consulting with Wie's parents and agent who then consulted Wie prior to her teeing off to complete the last two holes. Wie immediately withdrew from the tournament, citing a "tweaked wrist." She denied that the Rule of 88 had anything to do with her withdrawal. Her playing partners, many fans, and media observers questioned whether Wie was being honest about the reason for her withdrawal.[20][22][24][71][69][46] One of her playing partners Janice Moodie confirmed that Wie had indeed tweaked her wrist in Moodie's opinion. Janice Moodie stated that she heard Wie say "Ouch!" after hitting her tee shot on the first hole, which was the group's 10th of the day. Wie had said that was precisely when she began feeling the pain. Moodie said "She didn't swing as hard from that point on." As for Wie's purported petulance, Moodie added, "She was great to play with. Very friendly and respectful."[23] Tournament host Annika Sörenstam criticized Wie's withdrawal from the Ginn tournament and her subsequent appearance to practice at the LPGA Championship, saying "I just feel there's a little bit of lack of respect and class just to kind of leave a tournament like that and come out and practice here."[25][72] Further criticism was leveled at Wie and her parents accusing them of inappropriate behavior at both the Ginn Tribute tournament and at the LPGA Championship.[73] In response, Wie said, "I don't really feel like I have to apologize for anything. I just have to take care of my body and move forward and only think of positive things."[25] The Ginn Tribute hosted by Annika is a golf tournament for professional female golfers on the LPGA Tour. ...   (born October 9, 1970) is a Swedish professional golfer. ... The LPGA Championship, currently known for sponsorship reasons as the McDonalds LPGA Championship presented by Coca-Cola, is the second-longest running tournament in the history of the Ladies Professional Golf Association surpassed only by the U.S. Womens Open. ...

Michelle Wie pulls out of PGA Tour event | Tours & News | Golf.com (469 words)
Wie decided Tuesday to withdraw from the John Deere Classic as she tries to return from wrist injuries that have sent the 17-year-old from Hawaii into a deep slump of high scores and shrinking confidence.
Wie said she still plans to play next week in the U.S. Women's Open at Pine Needles, and she said she would keep playing the rest of the summer as she tries to regain strength in her wrists.
Wie has played the John Deere Classic the last two years on sponsor exemptions, nearly making the cut as a 15-year-old in 2005 with a performance that made her a celebrity with the community.
