Michelle Wie is an artist, both on and off the course. The former U.S. Open champion loves herself some fashion, and this week she's getting to show that style off at the 2017 Solheim Cup in Iowa. On a sneaky great golf week, the European women and U.S. women will square off at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club to try and win their second straight Cup. Wie will be one of the major cogs in the U.S. engine, and everyone within a 20-mile radius will know it. She's had her hair braided red, white and blue and is sporting some of the wildest golf shoes I've ever seen (side note: I love them, and I want Patrick Reed in them next October for the Ryder Cup).

Rory McIlroy will try to defend his FedEx Cup title after deciding against sitting out the rest of the season to rest a persistent rib injury. Speaking after a tie for 22nd in the US PGA Championship on Sunday which completed a third successive year without a major title, McIlroy said he was in two minds about competing again in 2017. "I don't know what I'm going to do," McIlroy, who has played just 13 events this season, said after a closing 68 at Quail Hollow. After seeking the advice of sports scientist Steve McGregor in Northern Ireland, McIlroy chose the latter option and posted a link on Twitter on Friday evening to a competition to win the chance to play with him during the pro-am ahead of the BMW Championship in September.
