Open Letter to WorldGolf.com. Re: Michelle Wie
Please refer to exhibit A: If Michelle Wie Makes The Cut, I’ll Do a Jean Van de Velte and Wear a Skirt
“Is is with great sadness and regret that I will be unable to wear the aforementioned skirt, complete with green and blue flowers, because women’s golf’s answer to Tiger Woods couldn’t get out of her own way.” Signed, Bruce
Teasing the golf world with a one over par first round of 73, Michelle Wie followed it up on day two with a quintuple-bogey 9 on the eight hole to push her score to 9-over 153 at the par 72 Montreux Golf & Country Club. This left her tied for 118th and 23 shots out of first. At least she can say she beat David Duval (that’s another story for another time).
According to the budding PGA Tour star:
“I feel my game is a lot better. Obviously the score doesn’t show it, but I know what I need to work on,” Wie said. “I gave it my best today and I felt like I did a lot of good things and hopefully that outshines the ones I made mistakes on.”
It is so charming the pure idealism that is on display.
Not to be stopped on her quest, she leaves the door open to more stupid choices in the future:
“I think if I played a couple (PGA events) in a row, it would be a different story. It’s just hard to play one and then one maybe a year later,” she said. “I think if I played eight in a row and I missed all eight, that would be a different story.”
I’m so looking forward to the 9th, and 10th and 11th attempts.
How will she entertain us then?

When I watch Michelle Wie, particuarly in PGA Tour events, I feel both amused and bemused at the same time. It is a feeling I cannot describe.
The only thing that has given me a similar feeling is watching Tim Henman play in a tennis Grand Slam semi-final.
I will just point out that the Dave above this post is not me though.
During the Canadian Open one of the Korean players will post very low rounds the first two days and Michelle will not make the cut...then what?? Stay tuned for the next exciting episode.
Well, personally, I'm hoping she branches out into stripping! Now that she's 'legal' I guess it's OK to say "damm, what a smokin' bod that girl's got"....right?? ;)
