Wie Takes Studying To New Level

December 10, 2009

Think you've had a busy week? Think again. Michelle Wie may just have proven once and for all that she is the most consummate multi-tasker on the LPGA Tour.Â


In Dubai for the Ladies European Tour's season-ending Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, Wie, a junior at Stanford University who's managed to reach number 12 in the Rolex World Rankings between classes, was pulling all-nighters earlier this week studying for her final statistics exam. After shooting a three-under-par 69 in Wednesday's first round (good for a T5), Wie logged onto her computer at midnight Dubai time (the set exam time considering the time difference between Dubai and Los Angeles), and completed the test over the Internet. Thursday morning, she went out and shot 68 in the second round of the tournament to climb into lone second place at -7, two strokes behind leader In Kyung Kim of Korea.  Â

Her stat score? A close-to-perfect 113 out of 120. Â
