Michelle Wie eating live squid reminds us she hasn’t accomplished anything in golf (vid)


When a young Michelle Wie burst on the global stage all those years ago, she was hailed as the LPGA’a version of Tiger Woods and we all assumed that she would be dominating women’s golf for years to come.

As we all now know, Wie’s career on the course didn’t play out exactly as it was predicted.

Sure, she still attracts loads of attention, has become a darling of the sports blogosphere (including SoB, partly due to provocative and scintillating posts to her once-active but now defunct personal blog, Black Flamingo, as highlighted here) and made a decent chunk of change through her many endorsements, including Nike and Kia, but as far as any long-term success on the LPGA is concerned, with only two professional wins, it’s almost reached the point where one could argue that Wie’s golf career has been one spectacular flameout.

With that said, Wie surprisingly is only 24 years old and her focus on her game was slightly diminished due to her attending Stanford University, so perhaps it’s not time to close the book on her pro golf career just yet. According to Eye on Golf, Wie had two top 10s on the LPGA Tour this season and currently is ranked 49th on the 2013 money list with six events remaining.

In any event, Miss Wie posted a video to her Instagram account where the young lady samples some live squid. Gross.

There you have it. A big bowl of squirmy squids. Is there anything more appetizing? Yes, yes there is. Pretty much anything and everything.
