Will Michelle Wie win in 2009?

The LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) begins play this week at the SBS Open in Hawaii, and as with so many other pro sports, the year begins with a host of unforeseen and unexpected questions. The 2009 LPGA Tour rookie class is comprised of 21 'rookies,' who have some very veteran experience, including Jiyai Shin, of Korea, who won three LPGA Tour events in 2008 - the most ever by a non-member, as well as Michelle Wie, of Hawaii, who has 48 LPGA Tour starts under her belt since 2002, and Kim Welch, who won the Golf Channel's Big Break: Ka'anapali. Respectively, Jessica Shepley, of Canada, and Nontaya Srisawang, of Thailand, are among their countries' strongest competitors. Representing six countries outside the United States with 15 international members and six members hailing from five U.S. states, the class is as diverse as they are talented.
