The Future of Golf is Now

As was recently reported, and then confirmed, 15-year old golf phenom Michelle Wie has decided to turn pro. While she plans to continue high school, and graduate, she will be competing on the LPGA tour and actually earning prize money.

This Thursday marks Wie’s first tournament as a pro. All eyes will be turned on her as she competes at the Samsung World Championship. This will mark the start of a new era in golf, one that will very likely shape where the sport of golf goes in the future.

Not since the start of Tiger Woods’ career has there been such a buzz for a new golfer. I look forward to seeing how Wie does in her first tournament and how she handles the pressure of being a pro.

And are there any bets on how long it will take for her to win an event?
