Michelle Wie Wins US Women's Open

I'm just so pleased that Michelle Wie won the 2014 U.S. Women's Open. What a journey, and what a tremendous amount of crap she had to put up with during the down times. Yet, she's grown into a remarkably poised, intelligent young woman, universally liked by her peers on both the LPGA and PGA Tour.

(Yes, I know, some of the Wie "issues" from years past were self-inflicted. But not nearly as much as some would have you believe. And besides ... who cares? She was 14, 15, 16 years old. Were all the decisions you made as young teenager good ones? Get over it. She blazed a path and should have been praised for her guts and talent. She was derailed only by serious wrist injuries, injuries that her dwindling detractors always forget about. She grew up, now her haters really need to do that same.)
