Auctioneer confuses Se Ri Pak and Michelle Wie, then goes Wee


Something isn't right with this picture.

LPGA pro Becky Morgan tweeted Thursday about a silent auction at Capitol Hill Golf Course, which apparently included an autographed picture of Hall of Famer Se Ri Pak. There were two problems, though. The folks presenting the auction -- which may not have been the course itself -- confused the Korean trailblazer for Michelle Wie, then they butchered Wie's last name, spelling it Wee.

The minimum bid is $160. Wheeee!

The auctioneers should have consulted Pawnee, Ind., councilman Jeremy Jamm. He's a big Michelle Wie fan, and can definitely spot a fake picture of the 2014 U.S. Women's Open champion.
