Don't need to think of it as the opposite side...

You are a realist...You have stated facts...

If she does make a cut, so what? What door does it open? What does it accomplish besides push her more on the public who is rapidly growing tired of her?

Bottom line...so what?

Sadly you cut all the strings (facts) which could lead to the validation of the publication of a book... She has to win to be a champion, then you applaud money making materialistic Mario...

Tired of her already.....

Right now I believe Michelle Wie is near the bottom of the leaderboard (+5 after 11 holes, 73rd position). But we know the Wie m.o. It's that she usually plays much better once the pressure is off.

But Michelle Wie's career is just taking off. She has plenty of time to win, score well and make history, if she can just calm down a bit.

It's too bad that with Michelle Wie playing a tournament, all other events get pushed under the rug. The Corning Classic is always a great event. Paula Creamer, Natalie Gulbis and Laura Davies are only two strokes off the lead after round one.

Annika Sorenstam and Morgan Pressel are tied for 14th place, only four strokes out. Many scores in the 60's and great golf being played.

After the first round she is tied for 153rd with her 77. I think she listened to Tiger Woods and his always "positive attitude" whenever he was interviewed after a round. Her statement of " well, if it wasn't for all of the penalty shots and the water and the trees and the whatever...I think I played very well???!!! Is she stupid or what?! Of course, as it seems whenever she plays in a PGA event...some totally unknown shoots lights out the first round and makes the cut line very low. At the Sony Open some years ago some dude shot a 62 in the first round...the lowest round ever (in his life) followed by a 69...then he shoots 76 & a 78 the rest of the tournament. MW is trying to act like "Cool Hand Luke" and states that all of the press for her to make the cut is not bothering her, however, it is obvious that she is under a lot of pressure from many different sources to produce either a "make the cut" or "win a LPGA tournament."

But isn't handling pressure a big part of the game?
