Golf Tips for Body Rotation and Wrist Hinge

By: Stacy Solomon

Although Nike is still standing behind Michelle Wie even after her horrendous showing at the Samsung World Championships, her agent, Greg Nared, has parted company with both Wie and the William Morris Agency.

It is understood that an agent who quits is quite common, but, in my opinion, Nared should be given a raise for hanging around Camp Wie for as long as he did (one year, so far her worst!). He consulted with Wie on the sixteenth hole of the Ginn Tribute where Wie was dangerously close to an all-time high score of 88 and I'm sure he was also mulling about his decision as Wie showed a thirty-six stroke difference between her score and winner Lorena Ochoa's final tally. The William Morris Agency, unfortunately, cannot shake Wie from its roster as the parental units would only sign with the agency if the contract was not based upon Wie's performance.

At least Michelle Wie was proud of herself "for not giving up this whole week". I wonder if Nared feels the same way.

Carolyn Bivens' optimistic belief in Wie makes me feel that she should manage a career which is currently winless in forty-one pro women's events. "It was unrealistic to expect any player, at any age, to enter the LPGA and dominate right away," the LPGA Commissioner stated. "... It's way too early to give up on her, and it's way to early to know what kind of career she will have."

Besides our Michelle Wie summation, Golf for Beginners also offers up some easy golf tips on the pivot and the wrist hinge, two essential parts of your golf swing.
