Not as lame as if you'd had both an LPGA and a PGA version and called them the "Random Hertoid" and "Random Hemtoid," respectively.

That's so lame it hardly even makes sense as a joke....

In all 3 LPGA tournaments this year, Michelle Wie has been a birdie putt on the last hole away from a playoff for the win. The firstr two times she had the distraction of high shcool, this last time she had the distraction of 36 holes of US Open Qualifying the Monday before the tournament. With these distractions, this has been her result every time. What can we expect without such distractions in her upcoming tournaments.

Last time I checked Michelle Wie was a professional golfer. Pro golfers have distractions in their lives, they must block these out and go about their business. You're never ending stream of excuses is comical--to her credit Michelle has not used these "distractions" as excuses for her failure to win, why must her fans continue to trot out the same tired, would've, could've, should've line of reasoning. She didn't miss all those putts, because of high school, she missed them because she is a lousy putter.

For the record, last week she had a 50 foot putt for birdie and a chance to make it into a playoff(hardly a gimme and hardly a certain win as you say in your blog) she went on to three-putt that green and finish two strokes back. I can already hear you typing, but she went for it so the comebacker meant nothing, fair enough, but what about the Evian Masters. If you remember she only needed a fairly routine up and down to secure a spot in the playoff, but there she blew the chip 12 feet past the whole and missed that putt. You can offer up all the excuses in the world for her failure to come through in the clutch, but you know as well as I do that High School and qualifying for the U.S. Open had nothing to do with it.

Jim, to answer you're question--I believe we can expect to see much of the same from the winless sensation. Top 5 finishes(always impressive), yet sadly no wins. Michelle is not a finisher, she's not a killer on the course, the sooner you realize that the sooner you can join us here in the real world.

Michelle has the game to destroy the competition on the LPGA Tour regardless of her age or experience. She is a .357 Magnum and the other women are pop-guns, so why can't she close the deal and win? Eventually you and the other Wie fanatics will have to honestly answer this question. In the meantime you go on making excuses, citing meaningless statistics, whatever it is you need to do to help you sleep at night. When you're ready to admit that there's trouble in paradise you can call Alex or myself for counseling.
