WATCH Michelle Wie’s winning birdie bomb

Published

on

In case you missed it, Michelle Wie poured in a 36-foot birdie putt at the 72nd hole of the HSBC Women’s World Championship for her first win since the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open.

Wie broke out of a pack of five players to seal the one-stroke victory with a 36-foot birdie putt. The 28-year-old posted a 7-under 65 to finish at 17-under 271, one stroke ahead of Danielle Kang, Nellie Korda, Jenny Shin, and Brooke Henderson.

Check out the putt, and Wie’s jubilant reaction, below.

“Winning is everything. I mean, there is no better feeling than when you think you sink that winning putt. It’s a high, for sure,” Wie said. “You go out there, and it’s this feeling that gets you going. It’s this feeling that makes you practice. It’s that winning putt that makes you practice for hours and hours and hours, and even the hard times, it gets you going back. You know that good feeling is on the other side.

Congratulations to Wiezy on her long-awaited return to the winner’s circle!

National Golf Foundation

The National Golf Foundation has conducted multiple surveys to study both the human and business impacts that the Coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to have on the game of golf.

Amongst their findings, the NGF found that based on phone surveys for over 1,000 golf facilities, 74% of in-season golf courses remain open despite the current Coronavirus pandemic. (As of March 27)

National Golf Foundation

The organization also revealed that there is a temporary golf course closure in the following states – Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusettes, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

National Golf Foundation

From a golf business standpoint, the NGF asked the ‘Top 100 businesses in golf’ how the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus had affected their business – with 23% saying severely, and 42% saying significantly.

The consumer perspective has also changed dramatically due to the pandemic. The NGF’s findings show that while previously the situation had not had an impact on consumer’s golf equipment purchase decisions, the research now shows that the vast majority are now delaying any golf equipment spending.

Check out all the findings from the NGF’s research here at thengfq.com/covid-19.
