Look for an interview with Michelle Wie in Time magazine, which hit newsstands yesterday.
Wie is bowled over by Condoleezza Rice
NEW YORK » Teenage golfer Michelle Wie couldn't believe she played golf with one of her role models, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
"I was like, 'Oh my God, it's the secretary of state.' They put me in charge of driving her around" in a golf cart, Wie told Time magazine for its issue on newsstands yesterday.
"I was like, if I crash, the secretary of state goes down with me," the 16-year-old Punahou School junior said.
When asked what she thought of radio host Rush Limbaugh calling her a "triumph of marketing," Wie, the No. 2 ranked woman golfer, said, "Huh? Who's that?"
When told he hosts a radio talk show, she said, "I don't listen to the radio much."
