The Amazing Junior Timeline Of Michelle Wie

One of the biggest individuals in ladies golf right now is arguably Michelle Wie. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii on October 11, 1989; Michelle is making headlines around the world for her outstanding performances in women’s events, and particularly for her aggressiveness in competing in men’s events.Michelle Wei

While there is a bit of talk lately about the way she is supposedly getting easy access into events, I just thought we’d instead look at some of her astonishing achievements to date, that got her to the amazing position she is in now.

  • Michelle first started playing golf at age 4, and
  • She played her first 18 hole round at age 7, scoring 14 over par.

- At age 12 she was the youngest ever player to qualify for an LPGA tournament (the Takefuji Classic).

  • Then at just 13 years of age she became the youngest ever player to make an LPGA cut at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
  • At just 14 years old she was already over 6ft tall. And at only 15 she managed two second place finishes in LPGA events, and missed the cut into a few men’s events by just a couple of strokes.

- She turned pro just after she turned 16, and made her first cut into a men’s event. She is began receiving multi-million dollar invitations into a number of different women’s and men’s events, and she still hadn't turned 17.

Now they are definitely some pretty amazing accomplishment of what Michelle has achieved as a junior golfer.
