Michelle Wie's LPGA Finishes As An Amateur

Michelle Wie played 24 times as an amateur on the LPGA Tour
Michelle Wie burst onto the international golf scene before she was even a teenager: Her first LPGA Tour appearances happened when she was only 12 years old.

From age 12 through age 15, before turning pro, Wie played in 24 LPGA tournaments. No, she didn't win any, as she later did after turning pro. But during her age 14 and 15 years she'd played pretty consistently at a high level.
