Professional golfer Michelle Wie finally lived up to over a decade of expectations on Sunday, when at 24 years old, she won the first major championship of her career: The 2014 Women’s Open.

Wie also won social media when she started posting photos and videos of a major celebration that included drinking from the trophy and twerking. Alas, those twerking videos have since been removed. From the looks of it, both Tiger Woods and John Daly have a little competition.

13. Recently threw out the first “pitch” at the San Francisco Giants Game.

14. And finally, she has major sponsors like Nike and Kia. Which is why, I’m totally guessing, the aforementioned “twerking videos” were removed.
