Ok When is this chick ever going to earn her right to play in an event? The easy ride she is being provided merely because at 13 she could hit the ball a long way is pathetic."
Yeah, what is up with that? What are you going to do with a "Chick" that played well enough in limited events to hold a LPGA card as a 14, 15, 16 and yes now as a 17 year old.? Where is the outrage that she might never have to attend "Q school" if she joins the LPGA tour?
It is terrible that last season she stole enough money out of the pockets of real LPGA players to finish in 15th place on the LPGA money list if she were a member. Thank God she only plays in eight women's events a year or she would be stealing the food off their plates even more than she already has.
Man those Sponsors are really stupid to ask Michelle Wie to enter their event. What could she possibly do to benefit them by her appearance?
Got to go, I see a smudge I need to wipe up off the floor.
I will wait with baited breath for the blogs bashing Sergio for lending his name to a golf course design in Dubai."
The cups will be 55 gallon oil drums sunk into the green. That way Sergio and the Shieks might make a few putts.
Michelle is not eligible to "Monday Qualify" for LPGA events (professional status) and can never play more than six events on sponsors exemptions. Of course she qualifies as a player for the two majors held outside the tour based on past performance.
That is earning your way.
You just don't get it. Bubbles , according to One-Putt and other Wie sycophants DESERVES to receive exemptions from qualifying.
Why? Because she is something SPECIAL. Because she is GOOD. Because she is going to take golf to another level never before achieved.
Does the Queen of England need to qualify? Does Britney Spears have to qualify for anything? No and no! Bubbles is royalty. If you don't believe it, just ask one of her brown-nosers.
One-Putt doesn't think that Bubbles should even have to qualify for graduation from highschool by attending the required number of days and/or weeks.
Or maybe your thinking you should have a say in her life?
In the words of Michelle Wie, "Get Over It" Alex.
It surely is the concern only of the aforementioned parties. It is not my business or, for that matter, yours.
But the last time I looked, the first amendment had not been repealed.
I personally think that it is an abomination to afford such preferential treatment to a faux star like Bubbles. You obviously think she deserves royal dotage since she is a prodigy, a personality, and "very special", a once-in-a-lifetime phenom.
You are entitled to your opinion, and I am entitled to mine. It's merely a matter of difference of opinion.
