Michelle Wie: A Name Stunning1 the Golf World

 

  Fourteen-year-old Michelle Wie is already a major celebrity2 in the golf world, a prodigy4 who seems 1)destined5 to become the Tiger Woods of the Ladies' tour, the best woman player ever. But Michelle Wie wants to compete against men, and she's already proved she can do it.

 

Interviewer: What's your 2)ultimate goal?

 

Wie: Well, I think my ultimate goal is probably "The Masters." Uhm, I think it'd be pretty neat walking down The Masters' 3)fairways.

 

Interviewer: Like to win it?

 

Wie: Yeah, I'd love to. It's a...

 

Interviewer: You seem to really want to 4)push the envelope.

 

Wie: What does that mean?

 

Interviewer: What does that mean?

 

Wie: Yeah.

 

Interviewer: That means go as far and as fast as you can.

 

Wie: Yeah. I mean, I like fast, and I like, I like, uhm, challenges. And I think that the faster you get there, then...there's somebody at, always...I also, I have to be the first to do everything, and I just want to be the best, so...

 

Interviewer: 5)And when did you start to beat your parents?

 

Wie: Oh, I think I started beating them when I was seven or eight, but they say I started beating them when I was nine, but I refuse to believe that.

 

Interviewer: So, who's pushed you more in your game, your mom or your dad?

 

Wie: Uhm, I don't know. I guess my mom, but I wouldn't really call it pushing because they didn't really push me. I'm much more self-6)motivated.

 

  Michelle's game is now in the hands of one of the best instructors6 in the business, David Leadbetter, who has coached the likes of 7)Ernie Els and 8)Nick Price. 

 

David: I mean, if she was a pianist, you'd see a pianist practicing eight hours a day, and somebody who loves what they do—and she really loves the game, she's got a real passion for it.

 

Interviewer: Do you think she could conceivably play and make, make a living on the Men's Tour?

 

David: If she continues at the present rate, I’d say yes. You'd have to say that, potentially, she could do it and I 9)wouldn't put it past her. I mean she's a very, very competitive7 girl.

 

Interviewer: You could turn pro3 tomorrow and be rich and famous. Do you worry that people's expectations, that now it's expected of you that now you’re going to go out and win 10)tournaments on the Men's Tour, and that you're going to be the best woman golfer ever, and qualify8 for "The Masters" and...Do those expectations bother you?

 

Wie: No, they don't really bother me because they're expectations of what I want to do, so I just have to...I just take one expectation at a time, just take it day by day, and then, I don't know, hopefully, it'll all work out, and I don’t really feel it as a bother because that's what I want to do.

魏圣美笑傲高尔夫球坛

 

    14岁的魏圣美已经成为高尔夫球坛的一个大名人了,这个神童看来注定要成为女子高尔夫巡回赛的泰格·伍兹,成为高尔夫史上最棒的女选手。但是魏圣美希望同男子比赛,并且她已经证明了她有这样的实力。

 

采访者:你的最终目标是什么?

 

魏圣美:我想我的终极目标应该是参加美国大师赛。嗯,我想走在举行名人赛的球道上一定特别爽。

 

采访者:你想赢吗?

 

魏圣美:是的,当然想。这是一……

 

采访者:你看起来真的想要突破极限。

 

魏圣美:那是什么意思?

 

采访者:那是什么意思?

 

魏圣美:对。

 

采访者:就是说尽你所能走出最远最快。

 

魏圣美:是的。我是说,我喜欢快,我喜欢,喜欢……嗯,挑战。我想你越快到达的时候,就……总是已经有人在……我必须在各方面争第一,我只想成为最优秀的,所以……

 

采访者:你是什么时候开始能打败你父母的?

 

魏圣美:哦,我想是七、八岁时开始战胜他们,但是他们说我是九岁时才击败他们的,我才不相信呢。

 

采访者:在你的运动生涯中,谁对你的推动更大,妈妈还是爸爸?

 

魏圣美:嗯,我不知道。我想是妈妈,但是我不觉得那是推动,因为他们并没有真正推动我。更多的是我自己有兴趣去做。  

 

    魏圣美现在受教于高尔夫球界最好的教练之一——大卫·莱德波特,他曾是厄尼·艾尔斯和尼克·普莱斯等优秀选手的教练。

 

大卫:如果她是一个钢琴家,你就会看见一个钢琴家一天练习钢琴8个小时——有些人就是乐在其中。她非常热衷高尔夫运动,她对之充满激情。

 

采访者:你认为她能够出色发挥、在男子巡回赛中争得一席位吗?

 

大卫:如果她以目前的速度发展的话,我认为她会的。你不得不这么认为,她有这样的潜力,我认为她会做得到的。她是一个非常非常有竞争力的女孩。

 

采访者:很快你就能成为职业选手,又有钱又有名气。人们对你充满期望:期待你能在男子高尔夫巡回赛中获胜,成为有史以来最优秀的高尔夫女选手,并且能够参加美国大师赛”——你担心吗?这些期望对你有没有什么困扰?

 

魏圣美:没有,他们没有真的让我感到烦恼,因为我自己也是这样期望的。所以我必须……我必须逐个实现这些目标,日复一日、不断努力。接下来,我不知道,但我希望所有目标都能实现。我并不感觉那是困扰,因为那正是我想要做的。
