OUCH!!!!!!

5 over par on the par 4 ninth hole. This reminds me when she took a 10 on the par 5 third hole at the Ginn Open hosted by Annika. In that event, she walked off the course before playing the 17 hole to avoid an 88. She is not doing that bad this time (currently in last place at nine over par), but I don't think she is ready to take on the men again anytime soon.

Well, MW shot an 81 today. Now we just have to wait for her after-round interview and learn that it was almost a 69, if not for just a few really unfair and bad breaks.

Here's how the 9 happened... "She pulled her tee shot into the right rough, then tried to hit a low approach through the trees to an elevated green. The shot came up about 30 yards short, and she bladed her wedge over the green, facing a steep, downhill chip.

She tried a flop shot, but it came up inches short of the fringe. Using a putter for her fifth shot, the ball bounced out quickly, rolled down the ridge and off the green. Her chip reached the top of the slope, then trickled back to her feet as she turned away before it stopped rolling. Her seventh shot made it up the ridge to 5 feet behind the hole, but she missed the putt."

Hmmm...Didn't I watch Phil Mickelson's chip to the green (at the U.S. Open) roll back to his feet several times? How frustrating!

Poor Michelle!

Michelle Wie is young and determined. Once she fully comes to grip with reality, I think she will be a great player. It all starts with being humble and I think her golf game is starting to make her realize that. Her mistakes, if she learns from them, will make her better, if she doesn't give up first.

“It’s a tough green,” she said. “I just left myself in the one place where I shouldn’t have left myself. But, long, you’re dead. I had a couple bad lies when I was down on that bottom, too. It was just unlucky. I just have to putt better.”

Nothing ever changes...like a broken record!
