Is Michelle Wie's presence haunting Creamer, Granada at LPGA Fields Open?
Paula Creamer and Julieta Granada, although two of the hottest golfers currently on the LPGA Tour, played second fiddle to none other than Michelle Wie in the interview room at this week’s Fields Open.
Pam Warner insisted on slipping Michelle’s name into her questioning, asking the two ladies, “This is Michelle Wie’s home course, do you wish at all that you had a chance to play against her here?”
To Paula Creamer, it doesn’t matter who is in the field, as she stated, “Ultimately I just come out trying to play my game and play the course and beat that number". Young Granada, still laden with the enthusiasm of newness claimed excitedly, “Yeah, of course, I want to compete against the best and she always has a great game.”
Although this is Michelle’s home course she is not playing this week. Her agents sent out an email confirming this to the powers-that-be (guess Michelle is having problems typing due to her damaged wrist).
Even the mention of Michelle Wie’s name brings better coverage to an event and a tour that suffers weekly to keep its name on the lips of golf enthusiasts. If Wie shows up as a spectator, expect as much camera coverage as at this week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship!

Ya think? It seems to me like the ladies kind of took that course apart pretty good.
The scoring seemed better than average.
When your column basically gets few hits, you have to rely on the W word to get any action...Reminds me of Chris Baldwin...
I hear Saxon Woods will be opening soon...
I want to get out on opening day!
It's amazing how fast the winter has passed. March is almost upon us, and, yes, golf season will be starting soon.
My advise to the ladies: don't bite the hand that feed you.
