The Beauty of Sport, Part Three: Golfer Michelle Wie

Michelle Wie is another female athlete in her mid-twenties (as of this writing, of course) who has accomplished a great deal with many years still ahead of her.

When she was ten years old,  she became the youngest player to qualify for a United States Golf Association amateur championship, and she later became the youngest female golfer to qualify for a Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour event.

A Hawaii native and the daughter of Korean immigrants, she graduated from Stanford University in 2012 with a degree in communications.  She could not join the Stanford golf team, though, because she had already turned pro.

That's it for this edition of beautiful athletes.  I'll have a fourth edition soon enough. :-)
