After Michelle Wie won the U.S. Women’s Open earlier this summer, she set off a media firestorm after photos and video emerged showcasing how the 24-year-old superstar cut loose and partied down following her long-anticipated, signature LPGA victory.
A photo posted by Wie herself showed the talented golfer drinking beer out of the trophy with her pals. Later, a video surfaced showing Wie doing a bit of twerking.
More stodgy types criticized Wie for her less-than-dignified behavior with the trophy, but most accepted her antics as a perfectly fitting response for a young woman who just realized her dreams.
While not as salacious as drinking beer out of it, Wie was recently photographed again with her Open trophy. The images are from a photo shoot for an upcoming issue of Golf Digest that were tweeted by Wie on Sunday. Looking good, Miss Wie.
