Tearful Michelle Wie suggests career may be coming to an end after opening round of 84 at Women’s PGA Championship

Published

Various ailments to Michelle Wie’s right hand and wrist has forced the 29-year-old out of action for most of 2019, and after posting a round of 12-over-par in the opening round of this week’s Women’s KPMG PGA Championship, Wie suggested that her days on Tour may be coming to an end.

Wie, who has arthritis in both wrists and underwent surgery on her right wrist back in November, made six bogeys, two double-bogeys and a quadruple-bogey on her way to an opening 84. After her round, an emotional Wie broke down in tears after stating

“I’m not entirely sure how much more I have left in me. So even on the bad days, I’m just like trying to take time to enjoy it. But it’s tough, I just love being out here.”

The 29-year-old began her tournament on the back nine, and according to GolfWeek’s Beth Ann Nichols, began applying an ice pack to her wrist as early as the 11th hole.

Wie is set to tee off for her second round on Friday 2.44 PM CT.

    With that picture above, how does she not have back problems?!? She’s so twisted up, I hurt looking at it.
    She’s rich. Go enjoy life. Who cares about career? She had a better one than most of us and made a ton more money. Go enjoy it. Good for her!

    She is the single biggest underachiever in golf. Male or female. When she was a teenager it was predicted that she would be the greatest lady golfer even. With only 5 career wins she’s not going to even sniff the Hall of Fame.

    She needs to take the correct amount of time off, heal and really take care of herself before getting back out on the course. She is doing more damage then good.

    She really needs to get better first, then get a swing coach and tell her parents to give her some space. They are always hovering around her and she needs to learn to be on her own.

    Every time she is out there, she is making the issue worse and it is compounding where she won’t be able to play again.

    She will never be as good as these rising stars and all this hype about her has faded away a long time ago.

    Please stop playing and get better!

      Arthritis does not get better. She could take 20 years off and it will not improve. It only gets worse – she’s likely trying to make the most of whatever time she has left.

    Take off the rock when you play and find a simple band. Nobody who really matters cares how big it is. See a doctor. Rest. And for the last time, stop running to mommy and daddy. Are you still 12?

    I shoot 84 all the time. It’s nothing to cry about.

      Are you a tour pro with 5 wins, one of which is a US Open?

      No? Then I would suggest shutting your mouth and keep shooting in the 80s.
