Teenage golfer Michelle Wie couldn't believe she played golf with one of her role models, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

"I was like . . . it's the secretary of state. They put me in charge of driving her around" in a golf cart, Wie told Time magazine.

"I was like, if I crash, the secretary of state goes down with me," the 16-year-old Hawaiian high school junior said.

When asked what she thought of radio host Rush Limbaugh calling her a "triumph of marketing," Wie said, "Huh? Who's that?"

When told he hosts a radio talk show, she said, "I don't listen to the radio much."
