Michelle Wie's lefty golf swing is better than your regular golf swing

__By Sam Weinman


Say what you want about Michelle Wie's unrealized potential. Her golf swing is still a remarkable combination of grace and power. And that's just the left side.

The 24-year-old Wie showed off her lefty swing on Instagram on Thursday -- which she credits Hally Leadbetter, daughter of noted instructor David, with helping her refine.

There's a bad joke in there somewhere about how Wie, who only has two LPGA wins, might have better luck switching to the left side full-time. But let's not get crazy. It's still not going to look as good as this.
