While you are quoting Arnold Palmer how about this quote that he said about Michelle Wie:
"she's probably going to influence the golfing scene as much as Tiger, or more. She's going to attract people that even Tiger didn't attract, young people, both boys and girls, and families"

Annika knows or should know the rules and the reasons for the rules. Annika knows or should know the 88 rule is there to enforce a kind of ettiquette that demands that players on sponsor's exemptions who are performing very poorly withdraw out of respect and courtesy for other plyaers who would be inconvenienced by the slow play(see the histroy of the rule on the Dot Wong link). It is Annika who has a total lack of class and respect, not Michelle. It is outrageous to criticize a player for following LPGA etiquette. It is absurd to expect Michelle to seek out another player to twll her she is withdrawing. Question? Was Annika on the course at the time, If she was it was Wie's responsibility not to bother her.

Johnny N. I have to disagree about your analysis. The Tiger Woods Foundation and first tee program he is involved with have brought thousands of young golfers into the game (long term fans).

Michelle is more of a "Rock Star" who attracts the curious most of whom will never golf.

On a side note; Janice Moodie who was one of Michelle's playing partners confirmed today that Michelle hurt her wrist on number 1 hole their 10th of the day last week.

Grant Boone from the PGA website has the story.

Johnny, perhaps Wie will one day influence the golfing scene as much as Tiger Woods but, for now, her influence isn't all positive. If she doesn't start impressing those fans who come out to cheer her on, they will eventually follow someone else's career and Wie's exemptions will shrink. I wonder if Sorenstam will extend an exemption to Wie at next year's Ginn Tribute?

Integrity in the game of golf is what sets golf apart from every other sport on the planet. If Michelle didn't want to bother Annika, perhaps she could have left a note.

Drunk, delusional...doesn't matter! It's a treat to read the bu**sh** some of these people come up with to justify her performance and behavior.

I just hope she stays the heck out of Men's tournaments. Her driving average 235. If she hit driver it's not much better. And it won't stay in the fairway

Michelle Wie is a thinner, prettier version of Rosie O'Donnell who happens to know how to play a little 16 -hole golf.

All of you should be aware that Wie's talent agent, William Morris, often hires people like Jim C and Johnny N to lurk in blogs and post junk like the above. Believe me, I work in the business

It is time for Michelle to quit playing for a while. She is playing like an amateur (just watched her at Bulle Rock)and she does not belong with the pros anymore, she has played this badly for a year now, and although she has talent, she has lost her swing and her game and it almost unbearable to hear the excuses anymore, go away quietly Michelle and practise and come back when you can compete. I say this reluctantly because I am a fan but her fathers dream is just humiliating her

I wonder what Nike's new slogan is going to be for Michelle Wie?

"You too can drive like a pro!"

Finally, truth in advertising.
