Michelle Wie, Deciding She Won't Suck in '08
With all the PGA Tour tournaments going on this week and things like birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle happening to our day, the LPGA Fields Open might get lost in the mix, as it usually should.
The one thing that is making it a little different is the fact that corpse Michelle Wie actually posted a respectable round Thursday. Wie made six birdies and three bogeys on her way to a first round 69, the first sub-70 round since 2006.
According to the Yahoo Sports article Wie was has decided to live by some catch phrases or something this year.
Those include "having nothing to prove to anyone, enjoying life, forgetting about last year, and not getting ahead of yourself."
I have to say, when you're making in the $10 million a year range from sponsors, living by shit like "enjoying life" is probably a little easier than, say, the guy that had to write that Yahoo Sports article. Again, celebrities and athletes - extremely well-rounded.
