Sorenstam, Wie, Gulbis to tee off in Women's British Open at St. Andrews
The Women’s British Open kicks off at the Old Course at St. Andrews this weekend. It is the first time that a women’s professional event will be held on the Old Course …
“It is a big step for women’s golf,” Annika Sorenstam told the media. “For us to play a championship like that at St. Andrews … I remember when I played as an amateur, there was a sign out there that said, ‘No dogs or women allowed.’ Hopefully they’ll take that out for the week. For us to be able to go there now, I think it’s going to be great for women.”
In the TravelGolf.com This Week podcast, host Dave Berner talks to Gordon Schultz of Golf Canada’s West about the excellent golf to be found in the Canadian Rockies.

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.
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.
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.
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.
