Michelle Wie will announce Wednesday that she is turning professional. Three reasons why this is interesting. The young phenom can only help the women's game. She'll make most of her money from endorsment deals, not tournament winnings. Because the LPGA requires members to be 18 years or older, she'll rely on sponsor exemptions and open tournaments. Talent aside, Wie will not be a typical golfer.
