One step taken: Michelle Wie makes the cut against men in Korea
“We’re sorry, Michelle can’t come out this weekend, she’s playing golf with the boys”
For those looking to keep up with Wie this weekend, check out the tournament leaderboard here, and keep in mind that they are keeping track of her by her Korean name – Wi Sung Mi (thanks to One-Putt and John Neal for that info).
And the infamous and dangerous Wie Warriors? Well, they seem thrilled. No one is about to say Wie made the cut at the U.S. Open, but she needed to make a cut at a men’s event first. It was a solid step by a young golfer, who by any standards is having an excellent first year as a pro.
From the Wie Warriors:
“Does anyone here still think that it was a waste of time for Michelle Wie when she kept “failing” to make the cut against the men? Would she have been better off if she didn’t have those chances to learn and compete against the best?
“Now we wait for all the “but it’s not the PGA Tour gripes to start".
3… 2… 1…” writes Mike.
Just a hunch, but I think we’ll be hearing more on this subject.

Funnily enough, when Wie is successful, Chris would rather catch up on his sleep and let someone else run the story.
The only thing I've been able to find out via Google is that the youngest male to make the cut was 14 years old.
My guess is that only a handful of males 16 and under have ever made the cut in a pro-event at this level. Female or not, that's quite an achievement.
In case you don't know, if Wie wasn't playing in the SK Telecom Open this weekend, she would not be competing in the current LPGA Tour event. Why not? Because she's already entered the maximum number of events the LPGA allows. What's she supposed to be doing? Sitting at home watching TV?
I hear 2006 may be a vintage year for "Bitter Tears of Gall";-)
Nor should the gentle reader be lead astray into presuming that any of those fine midwest to western cities (Well, city, town and cross-road respectively) are laid out on the New England Plan so as to actually possess a "public-square".
However, the offer is accepted in the spirit in which it is made. Which do you prefer Alex--Angora, Hungarian or American Mountain Goat?
God are you listening........?
The SK play is cancelled for today (Rain) and the event shortened to 54 holes with the final round tomorrow.
Come on, Wolfie, you do know that the "girls" won't let her play with them except for 6 times a year--and she has those six times already scheduled/committed.
You know she cannot become a "girls" member until she is 18 and you know how many folks get so "PO'd" when she gets exemptions.
OK, so the field at the SK Telecom wasn't major league enough for you. Of course, if it were major league, the course would have been PGA-fixed; MW would not have shot 5 under, and/or the major leaguers would have set the cut line over 5 under and MW would have missed the cut. Isn't that much, even for you, Wolfie?
They need to have their allies such as george and John D back in order to fight back the onslaught from Wie supporters because they are loosing their grounds as Wie improves on her golf and gets closer to her goal.
I think it is high time we showed our mercy on them as the battle is tipping toward our favor.
I thought that this was not an online grammar or writing class, or was it?
Brian, Please don't take this as anything but constructive criticism. The overuse of cliches does not add emphasis to your posts. I respectfully suggest that you attempt to be more creative in your writing. Thank you, Alex

hmmm.... kind of like the pot calling the kettle black, don't you think?
While I realize the use of cliches is not to your liking Alex, your over done hoopla of your first post was just a tad bit off the wall.
But then as long as Alex or Baldy do it, then it's alright.
Double standards at work!~!
Alex may be a Barrister, lawyer or legal hack of some sort( read: Shyster), not sure but I have serious doubts.
Putting that aside, as much as he derides the rest of us for our command of the english language, his usage of the kings english is suspect at best.
And as far as Baldy is concerned.... well, let's not go there. The internet is just not a large enough venue to provide constructive criticism for that schmuck.

Now see the difference? Whenever Alex is talking about Wie he apparently loses touch with reality and talks in gibberish babble.
Wie-ing for equal honours
