Nike begs Michelle Wie, Just Do It...PLEASE! Also, golf tips for body rotation and wrist hinge

Although Nike is still standing behind Michelle Wie even after her horrendous showing at the Samsung World Championship, her agent, Greg Nared, has parted company with both Wie and the William Morris Agency.
It is understood that an agent who quits is quite common, but, in my opinion, Nared should be given a raise for hanging around Camp Wie for as long as he did (one year, so far her worst!). He consulted with Wie on the sixteenth hole of the Ginn Tribute where Wie was dangerously close to an all-time high score of 88 and I’m sure he was also mulling about his decision as Wie showed a thirty-six stroke difference between her score and winner Lorena Ochoa’s final tally. The William Morris Agency, unfortunately, cannot shake Wie from its roster as the parental units would only sign with the agency if the contract was not based upon Wie’s performance.
At least Michelle Wie was proud of herself “for not giving up this whole week". I wonder if Nared feels the same way.
Carolyn Bivens’ optimistic belief in Wie makes me feel that she should manage a career which is currently winless in forty-one pro women’s events. “It was unrealistic to expect any player, at any age, to enter the LPGA and dominate right away,” the LPGA Commissioner stated. “… It’s way too early to give up on her, and it’s way to early to know what kind of career she will have.”
Besides our Michelle Wie summation, Golf for Beginners also offers up some easy golf tips on the pivot and the wrist hinge, two essential parts of your golf swing.

Perhaps LPGA Commissioner Carol Bivens should be made aware of the fact that Bubbles hasn't "entered the LPGA" and apparently has no plans to enter the LPGA since she didn't go to "Q" school.
Maybe the LPGA are giving her a pass "go" ticket with the $200 dollars included.
Perhaps it was a sort of Freudian slip by Ms. Bivens.
I wholeheartedly agree with your previous belief that Bubbles should embrace the college life and eschew the LPGA tour for an extended period. You haven't changed your mind, have you?
I can't imagine the LPGA bestowing permanent exempt status on Bubbles, but then, one never knows. She did get a freebie to the Samsung.
As far as pro golf goes, she should just go away. And beyond golf, who cares? It's her life. If she chooses to drop out of Stanford, so be it.
Oui, I wouldn't tell Michelle what to do with her life. I think there are enough fools already doing that.
I will though, suggest that she continue with college and enjoy life.
I suggest she drops out of college. Lorena did it, Tiger did it, and it didn't do them any harm. Paula and Morgan didn't go to college at all and it hasn't done them any harm.
She should play full-time golf.
Quick, someone call Guinness!!!
What the hell has you so tied up in knots. We are just having fun at someones expense who said she was going to conquer the men because that was what she wanted to do and nobody was going to stop her from enjoying what she wanted to do in her life. The only one that did stop her was herself. What a trill that has turned out to be
Unfortunately, B.J. has said..."I want Michelle to be rich and well educated"...hmm, there is no mention that he would like her to become a great golfer. Now she is rich and so are B.J. and BO, now we can get on with having Michelle well educated. As a part time student she will only be 34 when she gets her Phd.
