Rishe on Endorsements for Michelle Wie

Patrick Rishe, economics professor in the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology, discussed in the Forbes online article that golfer “Michelle Wie, At Long Last A Major Champion, Should See Greater Endorsements,” following her first major championship win by taking the U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst #2 in North Carolina.

An excerpt from Rishe’s article:

“With endorsement deals with Nike, McDonalds, Kia Motors, and Sony in her bag, [Wie’s] endorsement earnings are already somewhere in the $20-25 million range.  A lot of money for someone with few prior accomplishments, but in this sense she parallels auto racer Danica Patrick in that they both were novelties, attractive, showed promise, and spiked ratings in their respective sports initially.”
