Why are Wendy's burger patties square? Because they don't cut corners...Two months in Europe and I'm dying for a double cheeseburger and some crispy nuggets. Can you mail some please?

Omigosh...a regular comedian here at worldgolf.com.

Did you know that McDonalds is called "McDavid" in Israel?

Are you currently on vacation in Europe, Tuck?

Gulbis will win soon, would be my guess. Pressel, it is my belief has a bit farther to go before she puts it all together and wins. Both will be strong players in the years to come, but I believe Gulbis will be the better of the two.

I have to believe that this article was written to pacify the Wie fans who wonder why Michelle is the only to get raked over the coals for not winning.

All hail the new king of burgers, Donald McDonald!

Michelle Wie is off to school to show off her lucky Omega watch.

Where would Gulbis be right now if Butch Harmon wasn't her coach?

I think Pressel might win an event before Gulbis, although when Natalie is on her game, she is a real pin-seeker.

Cristie Kerr is a very bad example when you are talking about learning to win.

It took Cristie over 200 lpga appearances, before she won.
Also, she has faded badly in a number of major tournaments that she could have won, and is yet to win a major.
Also, Cristie has lost about 10 tight tournaments for every 1 she has won.

It you want to quote people who might have a bit of wisdom about winning, perhaps Annika or Karrie would be good examples.

At least Kerr can say that she persevered and won. Now she's close every week or winning...she has two tournaments under her belt this season. Certainly she is doing alot better than either Pressel or Gulbis.

Stacy,
Kerr is doing alot better than Gulbis, because Guilbis has been on the lpga for quite a while and has over 120 events.

Pressel has only played about 25 events or so, and is a rookie. Perhaps she should be given more time before judgements are made.

Kerr has been professional since 1997. I believe Se Ri Pak said it best when she compared herself as the older lady playing against the young girls.

In my opinion, Morgan Pressel will win one before Natalie Gulbis. Gulbis is no longer a factor in this tournament. Barring a "choke" from Ochoa, I think she's going to win tomorrow.

It's nice to finally see Miyazato near the top of the leaderboard. I was beginning to give up hope.

About a year ago on these blogs, several posters were referring to to Lorena Ochoa as Ochokea, since she was beaten out for first in several events on the final day. Yesterday, she won her third LPGA tournament in 2006 along with five seconds and five other top ten's. There hasn't been a word written about her on these blogs since her latest win. What a difference from the treatment a certain lanky teenager with dangling earrings receives when she collapses from..ahem..heat exhaustion. Do you think that that same teenybopper will still be ranked ahead of Lorena in the Rolex rankings. What a joke!

Lorena Ochoa is one of my favorite LPGA golfers. I think she's got great style. I have been following her career since the beginning of last year, wondering when finally she would change her strategy and "get out of her own way". At the beginning of the year, Ochoa finally realized her mental errors (which occured during the final round) and now she is a true champion. I wouldn't be surprised if she became a Hall-of-Famer in the future.

Regarding the uber popular Michelle Wie...I'm not convinced that the new book by Jennifer Mario, "Michelle Wie: the Making of a Champion", should have been written just yet.

Maybe Mario should have titled her book, " Michelle Wie: The Making of a Champion?" or perhaps, " Michelle Wie: A Champion in the Making" or probably the most accurate, " Michelle Wie: The Making of a Marketing Sensation"

I think that Gulbis is getting better and better by the day and has a real chance to win an event in the near future.

Speaking of Gulbis getting her first victory, does anyone think that Gulbis and Sorenstam will beat Tom Watson and Donald Trump in the Manhattan Golf Classic's Battle of the Sexes this October?

The surprise answer to your question, Jamal, is no!
The pairing of Watson and Trump were victorious.
