Brandon, what!? There may be a pile of leaves or grass-cuttings where a GUR has not been marked on a muni, but no way was MW's lie on a championship course GUR. She didn't give the ruling, however, and has played pretty well for a 19-yr. old in a pressure-packed team event so far. Whiney Wendy - no way.

Wendy, maybe on a UK, un-manicured links it wouldn't be GUR. But on a parkland where every part of the fairway should be spotless, that's not GUR.

As usual, Bu88les gets some help from the rules officials.

Don't overlook Pressel's 3rd on 18: 70 yards out, her partner in the front bunker, one Euro off the green, and one on but by no means a gimme birdie. Pressel's 3/4 S-wedge practically flew the green and settled into the back rough. From there, she chipped it off the front of the green (fringe). After the cold-top on 17, I'd say it was she who folded like a lawn chair. Wie still had a makeable par putt if Matthew hadn't holed the birdie. Pressel didn't. They blew those last two holes TOGETHER; it was hardly Wie's fault alone.

Real great Brandon...be sure to keep your foot on Michelle's neck and DO NOT let up!! She carried Pressel the entire match and right away you jump on her with both feet!You must have a sign over your desk that reads..."under no circumstance give Michelle Wie a break"

I admit it's a little unfair, but one of these days Wie has to get it done. I'll be the first to jump on the Wie Wagon when she pulls it off. She could do it tomorrow.

Pressel Wie came from 2 down with 7 to go to go up by 1, and then dropped the last hole for a tie. Each side could have done better and could have done worse. A tie that really feels like a tie.

If Pressel and Wie can compete as a team, I think we can look at what they did without worrying about who did what.

Pressel shoots a 77 and you blame Wie for letting a half a point get away?

Pressel played terrible so it is hard to blame much on Wie. Problem I see today is Wie golfed her azz off Saturday morning and I'm sure the media will fire up the hype again and make the Wieheim Cup all about her.

Is there or will there ever come time that you Wie haters will take your foot of Wies throat, as Joe Cool said?
She and C.Kim just trounced the Euro team, 5 & 4.
Was that what you meant B-Tuck? It was her birdies that one the round.

The foot is not on her throat. The foot is on the medias throat and anyone that thinks that she is the one and only story in ladies golf. Did you actually read my post? I praised Wie's play and didn't blame her for yesterday. Is Wie a great player? Yes. Is she the best player on the LPGA or deserves all the media coverage? No- not even close! Anyone who believes she does is living on Fantasy Island!

Excuse me Ray. Please enlighten me as to how you characterize Wie as a "great" player. List off her accomplishments and then tell me exactly how you attache the adjective "great" in front of player. Really, please tell me. I'm very confused.

smudgepot...I see that you are STILL a Wie hater! I am sure that if she wins the four majors in 2010 you will say that "she backed in and didn't deserve the wins."
