Michelle Wie has been many things in her up-and-down career, and polarizing is definitely at the top of that list.
She's turning heads again this season with a strange new putting stance in which she bends her body in a 90 degree angle to get her head out over the ball. You can see the video above.
Wie is playing the Kraft Nabisco Championship this week (the first major of the year) and sat tied for 12th at 2 under.
A lot of people are questioning Wie's tactics (Annika Sorenstam questioned her talent earlier in the week), as this is the first year for her to use the bent-over sideways putting style.
Alan Shipnuck of Sports Illustrated is at the tournament and said this Friday:
Bummer 3-putt at the last for Michelle Wie. She's playing well but it is painful watching her putt. It makes the gallery fidgety, too.— Alan Shipnuck (@AlanShipnuck) April 6, 2013
And of course Ian Poulter weighed in:
I can't watch Michelle Wie putt like this it's horrible. Who has got her putting like that. They need there head testing.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) April 6, 2013
