Michelle Wie's New Goal: Ryder Cup Spot

Michelle Wie, a 16 year old teenage girl phenomenon, has set a new goal for herself in addition to playing in the Masters: Playing in the Ryder Cup. Wie is currently in Switzerland playing in the European Masters, a men's European Tour event. In response to being asked why she still plays in men's events despite little success, she said, "I am not just doing it for the support I get, I am doing it for myself and my own self happiness. I love playing men's events and the challenge. I feel an adrenaline rush when I play these events and it is a lot of fun." Wie will follow this week's event in Switzerland with another men's event, the 84 Lumber Classic in Farmington, PA which is part of the PGA Tour's Fall Finish. Wie identified her new goal, boldly stating, "Hopefully, I will be able to play the Ryder Cup one day, that would be awesome and I think it is totally possible," Wie played alongside a current Ryder Cupper, Sergio Garcia, in a practice round this week. Wie will look to make her first cut in a PGA Tour event next week.
