There are so many pretty girls in the world who cannot win a golf tournament. Why do you guys keep writing about Wie?

That comment by stop! is a new one that even the diehard Wie Warriors have used.

We now know that Michelle Wie CAN'T hit a golf ball remotely as far (or evidently as straight) as the top men, and she certainly can NOT putt as well as ANYONE. So why the continued media circus? To watch the catastrophe unfold?

Tom, Before the Wie Warriors start to use their flame throwers on you ,let me advise you that BUBBLES IS ONLY 16 YEARS OLD! And she is a girl! A child! Making detrimental remarks about her will get you branded as a child abuser. A blogger here with the handle Kimo will let you know that Bubbles' appeal far transcends the game of golf. She is an international icon and a role model to young and old alike. Winning to Bubbles would just be icing on the cake, nice but not really necessary. Her fanatics firmly believe that she will not only be competitive with the men on the PGA tour, she will eventually WIN a pga tour title, possibly even a major. If you are not familiar with this site, you'll find that they are dead serious in their fantasies.

Alex, that was a very prescient post. May I remind everyone that Paula Creamer is a teenager also...with a track record of LPGA accomplishment. Outside of golf, Maria Sharapova is the ultimate teenage glamour queen...with an expanding track record of WTA accomplishment. Michelle Wie on the other hand, is thus far only a creation of a high pressure father and a connected media organization.

ROTFLMAO - Alex, thank you so much for the succinct summary of the "FAN-atics" positions and behavior!!! You really should find a way to make this a 'sticky post' on all "Wie-related" blogs so that the new folks will know what they're getting into!!! What a funny post!!!!

From MW... "It sure didn't go the way I wanted it to," she said. "I think it was very difficult for me after taking time off, go home, start school and come back and play a tournament. It was very difficult for me to do that. But I grinded out there. I tried my hardest right to the end." I don't know about you but this sounds like trying to make excuses and whining to me.

What, should she drop out of school now too? This debacle is getting more and more painful to witness. When are the greedy corporate sponsors going to step in and do what's right for the girl's future and stop giving her exemptions?

Oh ya, never, because they can make tons of money off her and back it up by saying they're helping her trail blaze.

BARF!

Brandon, From what I've heard, she is already allowed four weeks per year absence from school for her golf career. Her parents could stop the exploitation at any time they chose. They obviously don't choose to. They are the principal exploiters.

Bv, Glad you enjoyed it. Seems like the Wie-wee's are licking their wounds today. But don't worry. If Bubbles scores better than even one golfer at the Omega, they'll be back like bad breath and smelly feet. I don't have the expertise to make a sticky post of anything. But I'l keep it in mind.

Amazing how Ghet Rheel's computer stops working when Wie finishes behind 140 of Europe's least accomplished professionals (I'll grant her Sergio as being one of the good ones)

Poor Michelle, she shoots 78, 7 over and her comments are"I was only 2 over if you take away the par 3's(she was 5 over for those), and that's not too bad"!!??!!??
She is in so far over her head it is pathetic; people will soon tire of watching her miss cuts, putts, etc.

Has Wie ever taken responsibility for her bad play? All I can remember is her blaming outside forces. This time it's her homework that is to blame not herself.
Perhaps she has taken responsibility but I don't know.

"Now that I am 16 I wanna

play on the PGA Tour
play on the Ryder Cup Team
play on the LPGA Tour
play on the European Tour
play on the Asian Tour
get my Phd from Stanford

all at the same time...because that is what I want to do."

Hey guys, didn't you learn to be nice to others ?

It may be fun to poke fun at others' misfortune, but it ain't fun when you are on the recieving end.

Sure, no doubt Wie sucked in Swiss, but can't you just let it go ? It is like stomping on someone who fell on the ground.

Jay, Far be it from me to poke fun at a 16 year old girl. According to some knowledgeable people on these blogs that would be child abuse and would probably be actionable. No, I prefer to congratulate her on the fact that although she ended up in second-last place in the two rounds at Crans,and despite the fact that she missed the cut by 14 shots and was 22 strokes off the lead, there was a bright spot in her play this week. She was able to outscore by one shot the European sensation Sandro Tan-Piaget who finished last at 16-over par. That will boost her confidence when she tries again on the Mystic Rock course in Pa., which is about 700 yards longer than the course at Crans and has steeper grades which will suit Bubbles' 300+ yard drives. Go Michelle!

Joe Cool, Bubbles also wants an invitation to the Masters. And she wants to compete in the US open.

Bubbles?. I love it. I picture her under water Bubbles coming to the surface as she drowns in her own ...... I could feel sorry for her if she was not such a spoiled brat. In fact I do feel sorry for her somewhat. A while back she was compared to a sensational prodigy picher in baseball that got beat up so bad he never recovered. That seems to have happened to her. She hooks and misses balls so bad that she has caught a mental picture of defeat that may never leave her.

If she's got school, trying to actually win big on the LPGA, and only being 16...why do they keep trotting her out there to compete in PGA events? Like a gimmicky side show. Its stupid.

Cant she go to school, work on her game, learn to win with her own peers, and when she's got control of her game talk about her Ryder Cup aspirations?
This Wie thing is tiresome. Annika must roll her eyes. Even Kim-Kim has to.

Paula Creamer is no longer a teenager for you fact fanatics. Speaking of fanatics, check out the folks at http://mylpga.com a rather friendly site for the most part intended to be about the LPGA but also home to some of the most deluded Wieniacs this side of Honolulu (and that side, too). At least one devoted poster there thinks she has a chance to WIN next week on the PGA Tour.

I mean, get real. Wie's time has come and gone. She probably won't even be as good on the LPGA next year. She was pushed too hard and has burned out.
