PostSubject: Michelle Wie Wins Her First Major Championship!   Mon Jun 23, 2014 7:46 am

We have all waited for this for such a very long time. Michelle Wie won her first major championship today, by winning the U.S. Open by two strokes over Stacy Lewis. 

Michelle started the day in a tie for first place with Amy Yang. At the start it did not appear that this was going to be Michelle's day as she and her playing partner (Yang), both bogeyed the first hole. At that point in the tournament there were 6 players within 3 strokes of the lead. When So Yeon Ryu birdied 1, 2, and 4, she pulled within 2 strokes of the leaders.

She has really come a long way these 10+ years.  Now a graduate from Stanford no less, won a few tournaments on the LPGA, and probably commenting on how young some of the competitors are these days...she has paid her dues.  

The relief on her face when she sank the final putt was palpable.

If the person putting looks like MW or Sandra Gal or Choi Na Yeon etc etc .... that's great

If the person putting looks like me ... that's another story ...

Hope she will continue her good form for the rest of the season. I started watching her since her debut and when she played with her male counterparts (stirring a lot of hoo-haa with that).. Good Luck MW!!

Finally the back-breaking-bend-over putting style proves to work. I hope all other LPGA gals adopt the same putting style.

Having a putting style that is uniquely her's & having the last laugh... 
 cheers That is Michelle's style.
Well, to endure whispering & unkind comments for having a funny looking putting posture, sticking to it even when it was not showing results, that's a true champion.
