Michelle Wie West will rejoin the game next week, although not inside the ropes. Wie West, who has taken time off from competition to have her first child with husband Jonnie West, will appear on Golf Channel’s Live From THE PLAYERS, airing from Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., on Monday through Sunday, March 9–12.
The five-time LPGA Tour winner and 2014 U.S. Women’s Open champion will be a contributing analyst for Golf Channel several more times this year, working not only THE PLAYERS, but also the PGA Championship in May and the Ryder Cup in September.
Wie West worked as a studio analyst for Golf Channel during the 2019 Solheim Cup where she received solid reviews.
“I am excited to join the Golf Central Live From team at THE PLAYERS next week,” said Wie West. “I learned a lot from working with the Live From team at the Solheim Cup and I am honored to have been invited back to be a contributing analyst alongside some of the best for this prestigious event.”
Michelle and Jonnie married last August and are expecting a baby girl this summer, after which Michelle hopes to return to competition.
