Wie's 65 reminiscent of her younger self

Source: ESPN

For the first time in her young life, Michelle Wie isn't being handed something. She's not being exempt to play on the LPGA tour. She's not getting sponsors into Men's events where she shoot +20 and quickly goes home.

Michelle Wie is now a common golfer playing for her LPGA livelihood in Q-School. Q-School is a 5-round tournament from Wednesday to Sunday where the top 20 finishers qualify for the LPGA tour next season. It's five nerve wracking days in order to play the entire year next season and make hundreds of thousands of dollars, maybe millions. Michelle Wie currently leads the tournament at -10 after two rounds. We'll see if she can hold on to her nerve and qualify. This will change her career because she would have actually earned something which I think will make her stronger and a force to be reckoned with in the years to come.
