How funny that Gulbis will be top ten, Sorenstam will be middle of the pack, and Wie will miss the cut. A year ago, we'd be looking at Sorenstam to win, Wie to challenge, and Gulbis to release another calendar.

Ron Mon,

As Wiebots will surely remind you, Bubbles doesn't miss cuts in LPGA events, and she hasn't since 2003.

She now has perfected her patented withdrawal.

If she posts a big number in the first round, look for her to WD so she won't have a MC on her chart.

Alejo,
This is not an LPGA event, but an R & A event. As such, she is eligible for a missed cut. However, you are correct in stating that Team Wie is quite creative in spinning departures from events. Kind of like daytime television.

Ron Mon,

I stand corrected. Since the Ricoh is considered a major, Bubbles wouldn't want a missed cut on her resume in the British, either

It will be interesting to see if the Wie team will go to the well once again with the WD route if Bubbles posts a big number OR is about to post a big number before the finish of her second round.

As you said, they have various ways to play the WD card.

Alex,
Michelle Wie posted her score that was odds on to miss the cut at the lpga championship.
Through a set of bizaar circumstances and the last player on the course bogeying the last 2 holes, Wie managed to just make the cut on the line.
The fact that she posted her scores there, showed that she was willing to miss the cut at an lpga event and a major at that.
The other two events she withdrew from were for injury reasons and so do not count as missed cut, as you already said.

I believe that two black hawk copters were seen in the area, releasing free air horns to the fans, who were then encouraged to blow the air horns on the final two holes of round two. Both the black hawks and the air horns had a swoosh emblem on them. That's what I hear, at least.
