Alan Shipnuck recently did an excellent profile in Sports Illustrated of the new US Women's Open queen, Michelle Wie. 

It contained some pretty awesome quotes about Wie's prodigious talent, the best of which was this from Stacy Lewis on Wie's stinger 3-wood shot.

"Every time she hits one of those I just laugh because no one out here has that shot," said Lewis.

Tiffany Joh added that she gets scared when Wie makes contact sometimes.

"And ohmygoodness, the sound of her strike. Sometimes if she's hitting behind me on the range, I get scared for a second, like when a car backfires in Compton and everybody hits the deck."

The whole piece is excellent and definitely worth your time.
