Uh, one small detail: Bubbles wouldn't miss any cuts because they don't have cuts in regular Champions Tour events.

Also, the two tours do compete -- in the Three Tour Challenge. And the LPGA usually finishes behind the seniors, even with the handicap.

Golf is a funny sport(?). I can't think of any 'senior' tour of any other popular sports out there. No one will watch 'senior NFL' or 'senior tennis'.

Trying to attract viewers on a Champion Tour is futile, not even Wie can do anything about it. If a rich old guy wants to sponsor a tour and a bunch of old guys want to play golf, that is fine, but don't expect people to spend their Sunday afternoon watching it.

Judge...

Excellent observation, probably one of the best of all the comments posted in a long while. Realistically, let her get ready for the real tour; college, where she will have to do things like actually going to class.

To offer another "exemption" would do the child a disservice. People are using her for a punching bag because everything is handed to her. People are actually way past tired of it.

If she wants to play so bad, forget the exemption and actually apply and go through open qualifying. Failure on the "low" levels (open qualifying) will cure her of playing with the big boys.

Stacy,

Your anti-Wie sentiment is obvious base on your past postings; however, it is also quite clear that if you do not write about her to incite controversies, you will not have any visitors reading your blogs.

The Senior Tour is nothing but a way of how their board of pension plan determine how to hand out their pension plan.

Controversy about Wie getting an exemption into the Champions Tour? More like humorous content.

Oui, you should adopt a sense of humor.

True Judge, there are not cuts in the general events as they are only three rounds each but there ARE cuts in the Champions Tour 5 major events.

Stacy,
Obviously you are not aware that 50 is the minimum age to play on the Champions Tour.
It is odd that you forgot about that, particularly since you mentioned it earlier in your blog.

Anyway 17 year olds can't play in Champions Tour event.
By starting the blog you are continuing on the same standard as your previous blogs.

Golf for Beginners was a suitable title when you started you blogs, because your blogs were so horrendous, they were obviously written by beginners, but you really should be gaining experience and getting a bit better, and it is sad that that hasn't happened.

Johnny,

If I dotted all of my "i's" and crossed all of my "t's", people like you wouldn't have anything to nitpick on and then what would you do in your lonely world?

Thanks for reading and I look forward to more of your criticisms.

And, by the way, if you want a real kick you should listen to our internet broadcasts!

Be like Teflon Stacy and just let this stuff slide off.

Everyone is a "critic" these days.

I thought it was a great "tongue in cheek post".

KEEP EM COMIN!
