    Memories are to be cherished. This will never happen again. The victory that transcended LPGA from its biggest star. Too bad Michelle never took off.
    Hidden in the back drop, it was beside Wie vs. PineHurst but the Wie vs. Lexi Thompson battle. Lexi has just beaten Wie at the Nabisco soundly playing her aggressive game while Wie was passive. Lexi wanted to stomp Wie to show the world that she is the US darling instead of Wie. The after math was Lexi lost the gamble while Wie out drove and outscored her.

    Unrealized potential. She should have won many majors.

    One of the most overrated and overpaid(sponsors) in LPGA. 6 titles including 1 US Open in 15 years as a professional is underachieving consider her talent. Compared to other players of her generation such as Paula Creamer/Cristie Kerr, Creamer and Kerr has more titles(11/22 respectively).

      @Micah Jordan hey ahole, I'm commenting on how many titles Michelle has won since the public and media placed so much stock on her talent. This video is about her golf talent so I'm commenting on her lack of wins on the LPGA.

    i think Michelle Wie underachieved, but she had a lot of nasty, envious, competitors hating her & wanting her to fail. Michelle had the talent, the beauty, the poise, and the education; yet, she was hated by so many because she had those gifts. I'm glad she won at least one major, because I think she's finished. Oh, well. Maybe, she finished rich. That's something.

    Obviously, Wie was trained to focus on the big swings so much that she has been deprived of much needed putting drills. Unlike Tiger, who was trained from green to tee as a kid, Wie was doing the opposite way, and that shapes her career, namely a lot of good swings but only a few wins. If she was trained from green to tee, she would have won many tournaments before twenty.

    Disclaimer: I know she is one of the best golfers to ever play the game and that there is nothing wrong with it but...Michelle’s putting stroke looks so uncomfortable

    I am a huge Michelle Wie fan and was so happy for her. It's a shame she has had so many injuries in her career and I pray we have not seen the last of her winning majors. Just like Phil the Thrill who is along with Chi Chi are my favorite male golfers, Nancy Lopez and Michelle will always have a place in my heart. Congratulations on your recent marriage Michelle and may you have continued success and happiness. God bless you girl!!

    Wow, a woman accomplished something that an amateur male could have easily done. There are thousands of men in NCAA golf that could destroy what she did and they make $0.

    I'll be honest, I've never watched women's golf but what's to stop a transgender weight lifting track & field athlete from joining these tours. Maybe a new rule should include (God-given vagina).

    She reinvented herself 3 different times to return to the winner's circle which is unheard of at this level of golf. As a jr golfer (under 18) she is unrivaled. Michelle finished in the top 5 of a major championship as many times as all the other girls and boys combined in golf history. She is still the youngest ever to finish in the top 5 of a men's or women's major (14) and US Open (16). At age 14 in the PGA Tour Sony Open she beat the 36 hole score of 47 men including 4 major winners and matched the score of 15 other men including 3 more major winners in missing the cut by one stroke.

    What a simply wonderful video, Thank you USGA for posting it. I am a huge Michelle Wie fan and I watched via Sky Sports over here in the UK and was hanging on to every shot. She played absolutely great golf. Its just a shame her injuries have hindered her playing.

    I can't believe that it is 5 years ago. Time really does fly so fast. Speedier than a flying golf ball.

    The USGA have had some bad press in the past but for those two weeks was some of the best golf ever played imo has it was a fair test of golf and skill. I'd wish they would do of the same in the future. (Courses permitting)

    thank you again USGA for posting this :)

      Being the greatest woman at any sport is kind of like saying you got a toy in your happy meal.
      She would have ranked among the low rankings of college male golfers at that time. She is nothing special.
