Lewis, Wie, Rawson enter the Big Leagues

For all the Michelle Wie haters, Wie has now secured her spot on the 2009 LPGA Tour. Whether they realize it - this is the most amazing thing to happen to Womens Golf in a LONG time. Wie has answered her critics, and most importantly, proved something to herself.

Golf Couture is thankful that Wie was able to take correct lateral drops during competition while managing to sign her scorecard after her round all 5 days of Q-School - Whew! That was the biggest hurdle for her, trust me... qualifying was a no brainer for Wie.

Stacey Lewis, the University of Arkansas step-up, finished medalist at Q-School and topped Wie by six shots, finishing at -18 under par. Lewis won the 2007 NCAA Championships as an individual and never looked back.

Recently signing a deal with Mizuno, Lewis said, "I've used Mizuno clubs ever since my freshman year at Arkansas and have enjoyed success with them throughout my collegiate career,” said Lewis. “As a professional, there was really no reason to play any other club. I'm looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Mizuno."

Anna Rawson, one of our personal faves here at Golf Couture;) - earned her card with a T-12 finish at -8 under par. The LPGA should be truly thanking their lucky stars for this! She will bring coolness, fashion, sexy and hotness onto the course with a graceful elegance. A pre-2009 THANK YOU ANNA:)

So while we say bye to Annika, we say hello to some amazing women ready to take the Womens Golf World by storm! YAY:)
