Michelle Wie is a spoiled, little diva, fires her caddie, through "her people" of course

76 feedbacks »
Michelle Wie is certainly learning how to be a true professional. She has her worst finish in two years and fires her caddie. Well, not exactly. She had her agent do the dirty work. After Wie blew up at the Women's British Open, her agent, Ross Ber… more »
