There is no need to kick someone when they are down. She has already said the John Deere would be her only other mens event in 2007 so you shouldn't be attacking her about entering a mens European event which she has no intention of entering. It's also highly unlikely that she will play the John Deere given her form at the Ginn Tribute.

You've had your fun, hopefully you enjoyed it.

"Seriously, though, I think we should all be angry at the media's selling of Wie -..."

And of course you aren't part of the media???

She has withdrawn as well. Meltdown...

Where is Alex and Judge smails now? Surely Chris will have a particularily informative blog to add.

I've said it many times before on these blogs and I will say it again : Michelle Wie is done as a professional golfer.

WOW, seems a little early to consign Michelle to the past already, Oliver.

Now, is that a prediction based on fact or just wishful thinking?
Inquiring minds want to know.

One searches for similarities and analogies to Michelle Wie: Anna Kournikova comes to mind but the Russian siren could at least play competitive tennis. No, as a media sensation created out of pure hype Michelle Wie has no equal. When she arrives at a golf tournament, the only question is how many holes will it take before the errant shots off cars/trees/cactus and missed putts will accumulate sufficiently for the inevitable flood of excuses to come forth. It was too cold, too hot, too windy, the course was too bumpy.

When will the corporate sponsors hop off this train wreck?

If it does turn out that Michelle Wie's career has been cut short by an injury, it has been a great run--no matter what her critics might say. But I expect we will see a lot more of Michelle Wie on the golf course in the future.

I've got to agree, you should have thought to wear the "teen sensation," moniker back in CT. The Newtown K of C event definitely put you in that category. ;o)

Jim C,

Before today, I hadn't been posting on this site for maybe six months. I have been reading the posts of most of MW's supporters and those of her detractors.

Jim, you are one of her biggest boosters, and you said many times that she was going to win the LPGA tournament, absolutely, no questions asked. Sice she hadn't been playing for such a long time, I thought your prediction was more than a little ambitious. I hate to ask you, but what do you think of your prediction now? Not of making the cut at the LPGA, but winning it outright?

Where is that nice cute young man Chris Baldwin. Is he writing a nice blog?

Putt4par, certainly not wishful thinking. I relish watching young players come up like my current favorite Anthony Kim. But there are many reasons which I've chronicled before why Michelle won't make it. The main reason is her confidence is destroyed which is something anyone who knew anything about pro golf could see coming years ago. Idiots telling her she was ready to play against men and would someday play in the Masters and Ryder Cup. And then the casual golf fans getting all excited and even writing stupid books about Michelle set everyone up for the colossal disappointment she has become.

A couple of points....
What do the rest of the women golfers think about Wie's antics?
Her withdrawal today looks awfully suspicious when you consider the rule of 88. Seems to me that perhaps an age limit should be set on the tours to allow kids to mature and (learn the rules of golf) before joining.

0 career wins, 0 cuts made on any major men's tour and enough embarrassing withdrawls, penalties and excuses for two careers. I guess your definition of a "great run" differs from that of the rest of the free world.

Just another writer who makes a living off of other peoples deeds or misdeeds. She's still a teenager for crying out loud.

Join the tour yourself if your so great!
