Lots of Twitter Love for Michelle Wie's Hawaii Win from Fellow LPGAers

There was a time when Michelle Wie was strongly disliked - resented might be the better word - by golfers on the LPGA. At least those who didn't know her well. Those who took the time to talk to the young Michelle in her days as a teen phenom - players like Natalie Gulbis, Beth Daniel and Meg Mallon - always had nice things to say about her. But Wie was often followed by controversy (most of it manufactured by others) in those early years, and it hurt her with the LPGA rank-and-file.

But that was a long time ago. Wie has long since become one of the most popular players on tour with her peers, who respect her friendliness, her sense of humor, her respect for fans and the way she interacts with fans, and all the hard work she puts in trying to get better at golf.

The fondness so many on the LPGA have acquired for Wie is obvious in the Twitter reactions by fellow players after Wie's win in the 2014 Lotte Championship. Here is a sampling:
