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.
