Michelle Wie-West has hit back at Donald Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani for his comments regarding her golfing attire around her U.S. Open victory in 2014.
The controversial attorney and politician, who served as the Mayor of New York between 1994 and 2001, made the comments while talking about late radio personality Rush Limbaugh.
“On the green is Michelle Wie and she is getting ready to putt,” Giuliani recounted on Bannon's War Room podcast. “Now Michelle Wie is gorgeous. She’s six-feet. And she has a strange putting stance.
“She bends all the way over. And her panties show. And the press was going crazy.” Before adding: “Is it OK to tell that joke?”
Wie-West, 31, has since hit back on Twitter, saying: “It’s unsettling to hear of this highly inappropriate story shared on a podcast by a public figure referencing my “panties” whilst playing in a charity pro-am.
“What this person should have remembered from that day was the fact that I shot 64 and beat every male golfer in the field leading our team to victory.
“I shudder thinking that he was smiling to my face and complimenting me on my game while objectifying me and referencing my “panties” behind my back all day.

“What should be discussed is the elite skill level women play at, not what we wear or look like.
“My putting stance six years ago was designed to improve my stats (I ended up winning the US Open that year), NOT an invitation to look up my skirt!
“Nike makes skirts with SHORTS built underneath for his exact reason… so that women can feel CONFIDENT and COMFORTABLE playing a game that we love.”
