Wie has chosen to see the glass "5% full" this season

Former child phenom Michelle Wie has struggled in the 2012 season, to say the least. She’s made only 6 cuts in 8 starts, with her best finish T33.

When she was 10, Michelle Wie became the youngest player to qualify for a USGA amateur championship. At age 13, Wie became the youngest player to make an LPGA cut at the 2003 Kraft Nabisco Championship. That same year in June, she became the youngest to win the Women’s Amateur Public Links. At age 16, she turned professional.

Now, she’s 22 and only won twice on the LPGA the 2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational and the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Open. Last month she graduated from Stanford with a degree in communications — since she enrolled in 2007, she split her time as a college student and a professional golfer on the LPGA.
