"Gulbis & Wie were talkative during the round, especially early on when both were doing okay. Turns out, the two haven't played in the same group since Wie's first major appearance, the Kraft Nabisco four years ago. "
___________________

Actually Wie and Gulbis played together, along with Lorena Ochoa in the 4th round of the 2006 Kraft Nabisco.
I think they may have meant that it was Wie, Gulbis and Kim who were all grouped together at that Kraft in 2003 that you mentioned.

Swing coach David Leadbetter - easily identifiable with his pants hiked up to his neck as usual

I had a good laugh at that.

Over 4 hours since you posted your story and I am only the 2nd person to reply on an MW story. I think that says a lot about where she is now. Maybe the media should write about so many of the other really great stories on the LPGA. Oh that would take a bit of work though......maybe not

Totally agree Joe R. MW shooting 82 should not be newsworthy. First it is now her average score in events. Second she is not an accomplished golfer shooting a ridiculously out of character round, like Webb did. That is somewhat newsworthy. Better stories are Annika back in top form. Ochoa in the hunt. Gulbis fighting in style after her injury. Etc. Etc. Etc. The LPGA does not need MW. The only people that need MW are her greedy parents. and that is sad.

At St.Andrews the "BIG 88" will certainly be a factor for Team Wie. She already will have to qualify for three of the four majors in 2008. It is like she is in quicksand up to her neck and saying "well it really isn't that bad after all."
Goodbye Michelle, good luck!

Just because you hit the ball a long way and have finished well in a few events does not make a career or a top level player. The LPGA tour and the news media need to realize there are better young players who are getting it done. They do not need Michelle Wie until she shows performance not just potential.

Thanks for the blog Brandon. Glad to see Natalie playing well again on tour. I am a little jealous of you, since she is my favorite player. :) Hope to see her play soon!

Everyone likes a train wreck--I'm just glad Gulbis didn't play worse. But there sure are a whole lot of other stories!

Dave,

I must point out one thing: Bubbles isn't hitting the ball all that long. Last I checked, she was only averaging 250 at the Open.
