MICHELLE WIE WON HER FIRST LPGA title on Sunday by playing steady golf alongside veteran Cristie Kerr in the final group at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Jalisco, Guadalajara, Mexico. As has been widely chronicled, Wie has endured about everything the game, the media and golf fans can dish out since she surfaced as a Tiger-like golf prodigy in her early teens.
To celebrate her first professional victory, I will give away the 2009 book, THE SURE THING: The Making and Unmaking of Golf Phenom Michelle Wie. It’s autographed by the author, ESPN The Magazine senior writer Eric Adelson.
I haven’t read the entire book and the reviews I’ve seen are mixed. I can tell you the early chapters offer plenty of insight into Michelle’s parents and their influence on her golf career. Also, near the end of the book, Adelson addresses two big questions: Can Michelle make a comeback? (That one is in the process of being answered.) And the other: Can she still be the next Tiger Woods?
If you want to learn more about Michelle Wie and what makes her tick, this book will likely add to your knowledge.
