Wow. Didn’t see this coming. I’m still in disbelief. I know many of the Michelle Wie-naysayers who read this blog will be gloating, but you shouldn’t. After breaking her wrist over a year ago in bad fall while running, Michelle Wie never could regain her golf form. Last year, she failed to break 80 many times, but this year things started to look different.

Apparently, Michelle re-injured her wrist while hitting balls from the rough at the Stanford driving range (where one ball was embedded) and had to pull out of the Safeway tourney. But after her boyfriend Robin Lopez just announced he’s entering the NBA draft, Michelle decided it would be better for her health and her relationship with Lopez for her to retire from golf. “I love Stanford but I just don’t love playing golf when my wrist hurts,” Michelle said. I wonder what Nike is thinking now. (More)
