It just keeps getting better. Amateur golfer Michelle Wie
tied for first place yesterday in the men’s US Amateur Public
Links sectional tournament in Pennsylvania. She thus
qualified for a spot in national tournament where the winner
goes on to the mens’ Professional Golfer Association’s Masters
Wie is the first female to be first in a sectional
tournament and, of course, should she win the national
amateur mens’ public links tournament, she would be the first
women, as far as I know, to play in the Masters.
But, that’s a big step away and even Wie would be cautious in
saying playing in the Masters is a dream that may be just out
of reach. For now. Still, in her short 15 years, she has done
more than most
men people do in their lifetimes.
