Terrific picture of Michelle last week in Golf World, the opening photo in jeans and her Stanford garb. Absolutely beaming, so proud of her accomplishment.
I thought the article was interesting when it indicated Michelle's initial plan was to graduate in 6 years, until she realized her friends would be graduating and gone, so she accelerated the process to 4 and a half years. Very sharp.
She can't putt and her swing isn't quite as limber and natural as it was prior to injuries and added maturity. IMO, the parental aspect is a world class crock, conventional wisdom blubbery. It's like politics when big picture realities dominate and basically dictate the outcome a year or more in advance but analysts desperately need to nitpick something to feel better about themselves, a cheap focal point.
That Golf World piece was so full of fluff it almost prompted me to write them. For those who didn't read it, go and find it and have a little chuckle.
It concludes by saying Michelle Wie is growing up and spreading her wings. How? By
1. Putting colorful highlights in her hair
2. Getting a puppy (which her parents have to keep at home as it is not permitted in the dorms)
3. By wanting to discuss art with Luke Donald
Not to pile on, but for a Communications Major and one so exposed to the media, Ms. Wie is not very articulate. She may be book-smart enough to get into Stanford, but I'm afraid for her safety if she so much as crosses a street alone.
and another thing Golf World, a Stanford alumni is usually reserved for someone who actually graduated from the school. An alumna is a former student. Tiger Woods is an alumna.
