You can attribute 90% of Michelle Wie's sponsorship dollars to her legs. Corporate sponsors are very shallow.

It was pretty remarkable what Lil Kim did to win that championship. The feat would have been incredible even if she was 25...but, 14 years, 11 months is really impossible!! It was bad enough for the "Deutsche Madchen" to lose after being 5 holes up...but to birdie the last two holes when she was only 1 hole down and still lose was really incredulous!!! Congratulations Lil KIm...I wonder how Michelle would have handled the pressure...oh, excuse me, we already know the answer to that question.

Tucker, you too jumping on Wie-bashing band wagon ? Enjoy while it lasts because she will come back with a vengence in year 2007, and you Wie-bashers will have to eat your shorts.

Jay,

I don't bash Wie so much as I bash "The Man" behind her. Her moves are about as calculated as a new teen heart throb's.

I will go on record as saying Wie will win something in the next year.

Maybe it'll be golf, maybe it'll be Dancing with the Stars.

In answer to how Wie may have handled the pressure at the amateur. From looking at the difficulty of the greens and pin positions, I'd say Wie would have won about 10&9 against either player.

The level of golf that Wie plays is well above their levels.
Wie beat Kim by 23 shots over 4 rounds at the US Womens Open.
That's about an 11 shot advantage over the 2 rounds of the us amateur championships, so the pressure of a tight match would likely not have been an issue.

"The Man" behind her? You write a golf gossip column! Who do you think you are working for? Sorry, "Street Cred" is out of the question for you. Are you angling for "Cart Path Cred"?

"(most of them comment on this blog board all the time, you can't miss em)."
So true. so very freakin true. the Maria Sharapova/Kournikova thing icked me out in the early stages too.

"I think what Michelle Wie is doing is great, I'd just rather win stuff, he-he."
Even the die hardiest Wie warrior has to admit this was chuckle-worthy.

We've heard the same line for years... and yet Old 88 keeps on losing. What is she now. 0 for 7 years, and counting.

It's always wait till next year! And we've been hearing it for what seems like forever. She hasn't done it in 2009, so now we're hearing that 2010 is the year she'll dominate.. ha,ha,ha... I will give here credit for being a decent also-ran.

Hey Jay, you were so right.. Winless has ripped through the LPGA and dominated everyone. When she plays, everyone else is fighting for second, as first is reserved for her.

There are a few questions I'd like to ask:
1. How many majors has she won?
2. How many tournaments has she won?
3. Will she be Rookie* of the Year?
4. How many Player of the Year awards does she own?
5. Why is she so afraid of Ya Ni Tseng?
6. Do you think she'll be on the Ryder Cup Team, like she plans to be?

Joe Cool, you wrote "...I wonder how Michelle would have handled the pressure...oh, excuse me, we already know the answer to that question. "

Yes, we do, and it's a couple of years later and things still haven't changed. She had a chance to win the first tournament of the year (2009) and promptly blew a three-shot lead with seven holes to play, but going three over on her own ball; and Angela Stanford showed what a champion is made of by going three under... Some will say that Wie didn't lose it and that Stanford won it, but they don't want to admit that even with Stanford's three birds, Wie would have been in a playoff had she not choked away those three shots....

So... yeah, she's still at it. Come Sunday when she has a chance, she'll gag.
