Grouchy Golf has reported that Michelle Wie will be turning pro on her birthday, October 11th. Hey, that’s two days after my birthday (you still have time to find me a golf present, shipping info is listed under the reviews link above left).

Michelle will be a 16 year old gazzilionare thanks to Nike. To be exact, she’ll get 10-12 mmmmmillion. While her friends will be flipping burgers and McD’s and trying to get their driver’s license, she’ll be riding in her limo to the bank.

Nike… hmm.

    As much as I’d like to see her turn pro, I hope she doesn’t do it at this age. She still has so much to prove…I like what Tiger did, had a lot of opportunities but still stuck with his amateur status, won 3 US Am titles then turned pro…Michelle Wie can do the same thing…damn money is corrupting the young mind!
