Competition Between Wie, Other Young Players Has Plenty Going Right For LPGA
Published July 1, 2014
WORK STILL TO BE DONE: GOLF WORLD's Jaime Diaz writes golf is "starved for Michelle Wie to be great," and the reaction to her U.S. Open win "confirmed that Wie possesses the star quality -- looks, personality, story, athleticism, je ne sais quoi -- to lift the LPGA and women's golf." However, if Wie's on-course success "stalls, the pendulum will swing back" on the sport's momentum. That is why it is "crucial for Wie to continue to grow as a golfer." Wie "deserves all credit for what she's accomplished, and she should be allowed to be great in her own time." Diaz: "The point is, she is not great yet, and she has to keep improving to get there" (GOLF WORLD, 7/7 issue). GOLFWEEK’s Forecaddie writes while “Michelle Mania is great for the LPGA,” Lewis following her win last weekend “remains the world No. 1” (GOLFWEEK, 7/4 issue).
