Michelle Wie gets advice from Sergio Garcia + Phil Mickelson

The Golf Blog’s own Douglas asked here whether Jack Nicklaus or Tiger Woods should mentor Michelle Wie. Well, neither has happened. But AP’s Doug Ferguson reports recently met with two world class golfers who have had their own share of struggles:

“At the European Masters, Wie had lunch with Sergio Garcia. He reminded her that he finished last as a 19-year-old in his first major as a professional, the ’99 British Open at Carnoustie, then finished one shot behind Tiger Woods in his next major at Medinah. Two weeks ago, she met with Phil Mickelson, whom the media constantly nagged over his failure to win a major. That changed when Mickelson won the ’04 Masters…”

OK, I’m a big Sergio fan, but, outside of the Ryder Cup, his putting is so balky, that Team Wie should keep Michelle from hanging out too much with Sergio (for fear of bad putting karma becoming contagious). As far as Michelle meeting Mickelson, I really wonder what they talked about.
