Crawford's Golf Daily, For April 20th, 2014

Michelle Wie---It is obvious we are seeing the true growing up of Michelle Wie. With her win yesterday, we have to expect more during the 2014 LPGA season. I first saw Michelle Wie at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in the 2003 U.S. Women's Open and there was no question about the ability she had, but it was all about how she was going to handle the future.

That was 11 years past, the future has not been the greatest for Wie, but that appears now to be all behind her. Michelle Wie is a classy person, I think the whole world is going to get behind her to be a big time star on the LPGA Tour.

We do have to admit that her thinking at one time of playing on the PGA Tour, might have really messed up her golf swing for a long time, as she had to add distance.

That once again was a bad part of the future, but you would have to think still at the age of 24,  Wie has one bright future ahead of her.

Miguel Angel Jimenez---This guy is a true international sports star. He wins all around the world and today became the 18th player on the Champions Tour to win in their debut on the Tour. The Gwinnett Championship had a great field and Jimenez dominated that field.

Now he has some tough choices to make. Does he stay in the states or go back to Europe to try and make the 2014 European Ryder Cup team.

If he does not play regularly on the Champions Tour, it will be a huge loss for golf fans in the United States. The guy is a star, a really true international sports star.

Matt Kuchar---How can you not root for Matt Kuchar, the winner today in the RBC Heritage Classic.

He is a great golfer and class person, who is a certain Hall of Famer down the road. He does need to win a major however and he has to be a strong contender at Pinehurst, where Kuchar one of the great short game players in all of golf can succeed.

Lanny Wadkins---Wadkins in the king of commentators when it comes to learning about golf and strategy. Wadkins once again was at his best this weekend for the Champions Tour event in Georgia.

He tells you just enough, without overdoing it. So the next time he is on a telecast, pay attention, because you sure will learn much from him.
