Michelle Wie withdraws and golf bloggers have their say
Remember that time that Michelle Wie withdrew from an LPGA tournament after the 16th hole at 14-over? Oh yeah, that was yesterday. Here’s what golf bloggers are saying about it:
The Business Golf Blog hopes Wie can turn things around before becoming the next Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan.
The Bogey Lounge is wondering if Wie has gone from prodigy to sideshow act in a short time.
Robert Thompson calls it “The Great Michelle Wie meltdown.”
Golf for Beginners thinks Michelle has bottomed out.
The Hooked on Golf Blog is amazed that we’ll soon be seeing Wie at a PGA Tour event.
Jeff White explains how Wie pulled a “Billy Casper.”

Wie says she wasn't thinking about the LPGA's 88 rule, which stipulates that any non-LPGA player (Wie was there on a sponsor's exemption) who doesn't break 88 in a round is not allowed to finish the tournament or play in any other tournaments for the rest of the season. "I don't think about shooting 88," she said. "That's not what I do."
Rule 888 does affect Kline as you'll see from this report: http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2007/06/02/sports/professional/22_49_446_1_07.txt
Listen A.S. , You have had the experience all this time being with the LPGA. Be somebody to look up to instead of sounding and acting like a bully in the typical school-yard scenery. Be there for her instead of "blasting her" from the spotlight you just strong armed and forced yourself into with your comments after Michelle Wie could not continue the tournament because of the wrist injury. Tiger would not have done this and probably never will. Different class level. I thought you were bigger than that Annika. Is your career earnings not enough (19 MIL + ), or your endorsements not enough, or the fact that your playing style is much more significant than your competitors not enough to not feel a threat from the new phenom? Or is she a threat?!!
