If MW can keep her drives in the fairway and make those four foot putts under pressure, then shame on all of the LPGA gals. If on Thursday she tees off with her five wood, then all bets are off!

Carol Bivens is the typical executive in the USA. The poorer performance you have, the bigger reward that you receive. I can not understand why she did not go into politics. She was one of the biggest media head hunters in the business.

Guys, you are way off. Didn't either of you read Driven? Michelle's parents asked to live in a dorm with michelle at stanford. They got into a tiff with the school and were forbidden from campus for a while. yet you say they have given her wiggle room? The zone is not a rarity...it's actually easy to achieve in life not just golf. Finally, how can you say with a straight face that tiger's stamina might suffer? please...

In 2nd round of the SBS Open today, MW birdied 3 consecutive holes on her back nine. Currently in 1st place, 9-under overall.

I hope Michelle does well at least as long as She stays away from the men's tour, then it turns into a circus.

Bubbles had her best tournament since she became a professional.

Playing on a course with which she is very familiar, a layout which might be called her "home course", she managed to forge a three-shot lead with eight to play.

The Wie Warriors must have surely believed that their dreams were about to come true.

So what did she do? She CHOKED, plain and simple.

If she couldn't close the deal with all the advantages including a friendly hometown gallery, it's quite possible that she never will close the deal.

Michelle Wie 2.0 is almost identical to MW 1.0.

Good morning Alex,
It is interesting that in the past Michelle, when in position to win, elects to play conservatively and gets a death grip on her three wood. Even after she blew her lead and going to the eighteenth hole, she decided to "lay up" and be happy with a par and assured of second place.

With her past history and the "Annika situation" I don't think that any of the LPGA gals spoke to her during that week in Hawaii. I still see that she uses her caddy only as a mule and does not seek any advice from them at all. "Just shut up and carry my bag." Her mental breakdown on the last six holes, if not improved on, will prevent her from ever winning a golf tournament.

MICHELLE WIE: I'd have to say it's pretty high. Every good shot that I hit I'm putting in the positive memory bank and gaining confidence a little bit by little bit. I feel pretty good with my game. Obviously, right now I am a little disappointed, but I can take a lot of positive thoughts from this week. And I think I know exactly what to work on. I know, like, what I have to do to go to the next level. And I think this is just going to -- just missing the trophy by a little bit is going to motivate me to work even harder for the next one. JR, does this sound familiar?
