Juli Inkster sizzles to start Women's British Open while Wie and Webb stall
Juli Inkster got off to a sizzling start at the Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes, playing her first 11 holes in 6-under to take an early lead. Italy’s Silvia Cavalleri has the best score in the clubhouse thus far at 3-under …
Michelle Wie struggled early finished a 2-over par after birding No. 18, while Karrie Webb labored home with a 4-over-par 76 …

Uh, men and women DON'T play at comparable levels. By the way, it's "relatively" easy to dominate the LPGA because the competition is quite lacking.
During the Michelle interview she was asked how many bunkers was she in and she said that she had no idea!? I wonder what she would say if asked what country is shhe playing in.
Should Julia have a repeat performance tomorrow, Michelle will be hard pressed to make the cut.
Hard pressed to make the cut?
What Ms. Inkster does has absolutely nothing to do with Ms. Wie's ability to "make the cut."
But you already knew that.
By Sunday, she will be in the top five, as always. The cream, and I don't mean Paula, always rises to the top especially over a four day tournament. The real question is can Julie repeat/maintain her amazing form and hold off the charge of Anna, Michelle, Lorena, Laura, Webb, etc.
These are ABSOLUTE DEADLINES for me. After these dates I may go in to the
deep dark despair that the Wie detractors so dearly wish upon her supporters.
Date One: July 18, 2009
Date Two: April 10, 2012
After "date one" Michelle will have forever lost the opportunity
to have her first pro win at an age younger than Tiger Woods.
After "date two" Michelle will have forever lost the opportunity
to have her first pro win at an age younger than Jack Nicklaus.
If she wins anytime before either of these dates, she'll be ahead of
the mark set by at least one of the legendary golfers of our time.
Sure, one could argue that there are other "first win" target dates of some significance, but I
believe these may be the ones most important to her true supporters.
Hey the girl improved her score, what is the issue.
Who knew the Inkster would shoot a Hall of Fame round and be the one leading this event. These old gals are rockin this season.
Better keep that bottle of 'Fake Puke' handy!!!!
I'll be pulling a "nooner " today. We're visiting friends in the Quad Cities area. On Sunday, and possibly tomorrow, my buddy and I will play the TPC at Deere Run, the scene of Bubbles' swoon last month. Well be playing from tees at about 6400 yards. Bubbles better make a run or the Wie-wee's will be put on suicide watch."
Good luck Alex, give us a course report when you return.
