CALLAWAY GOLF SIGNS MICHELLE WIE
One of the most influential players in the game, Wie joins an outstanding list of young, proven winners on Team Callaway. A 27-year-old Hawaii native, Wie has been in the spotlight since the age of 10, when she became at the time the youngest player to qualify for a USGA amateur championship. At 13, she became the youngest player ever, male or female, to win a USGA adult event at the 2003 Women's Amateur Public Links and the youngest player to ever make an LPGA cut. At 14, she became the youngest female ever to play in a PGA Tour event at the Sony Open, and at 16 she turned professional. Despite being one of the most recognized players in the game already, Michelle chose to attend Stanford University in addition to competing professionally. Since playing full-time on the LPGA Tour, Wie has won 4 times, highlighted by her major victory at the U.S. Women's open, been among the top-ranked players in the world, and competed on 4 U.S. Solheim Cup teams. She's also known for being one of the longest hitters on the Tour, and one of its biggest stars both inside the ropes and while engaging her fans through social media. As a Full Callaway Staffer, Michelle will use Callaway clubs, balls and an Odyssey Putter.
