Golfer Supremacy Rankings: If you can't take the heat, who cares?
The dedicated staff at the GSR’s were all 16 once. Young, impressionable, bulletproof and complete emotional wrecks 92 percent of the time. Luckily for us, we didn’t have to do much on a national stage at that time. That would have just been catostrophic.
But perhaps we’re just weak. Or unlucky that we were raised by parents instead of business managers.
Golfer Supremacy Rankings
1. B.J. Wie
Comments: So, you say your 16-year-old daughter has a unique and marketable talent? Why not pimp it for all it’s worth? There’s money to be made, and heck, she’s tall, so therefore she must be emotionally mature enough to handle whatever situation you stick her in, or she sticks herself in. Get shelled trying to make a PGA Tour cut? No sweat, the check from Nike is in the mail anyway.
Was the pain Michelle felt in her stomach last week at the John Deere Classic from the heat, or perhaps a reaction from her pop wringing every cent out of her? Or from the burden of ambition unchecked?
We’ll say it was the heat, but perhaps - just perhaps - this frantic rush for greatness could come back to bite B.J. in the ass later.
But, hey, his daughter is unique. Maybe the things that happen to her as a young teen won’t affect her for her entire life, as they seem to for every other female in the history of civilization.
2. Bobby Wadkins
Comments: Wadkins overcame a four-shot deficit and played through blistering heat to win the Seniors Players Championship and prove once and for all that 54-year-old men are much tougher that 16-year-old girls, despite being much less fun to watch.
3. South Korean Golfer
Comments: Yet another fantastic performance by South Korean Golfer as she won the Jamie Farr Classic. South Korean Golfer has now won nine of 18 LPGA events this year and continues to outshine the “young guns” of the LPGA Tour.
“I won and I got a trophy. So I’m very happy,” said South Korean Golfer.
4. Australian Golfer
Comments: Australian Golfer continues to dominate the PGA Tour, as he won the John Deere Classic.
“Koala Bear, kangaroo, shrimp on the barbie, Elle McPherson, Socceroos, Crocodile Dundee!” said Australian Golfer following his one-shot victory.
Random Factoid: From John Stahlschmidt, Teaching Professional, ESPN Golf Schools, on how to play golf in hot weather.
“Make sure you are taking in more fluid than you are losing.”

Don't be such a hypocrite Wolfrum
As far as interest waning in her foray's against men, how do you explain that she supposedly increased charity revenues at John Deere by one million dollars?
Nowhere in your rambling response do I see any attempt to answer my question.
3 there just to see Ms Wie play
3 that would be there anyway, but were glad that Ms Wie was playing
2 that would be there and didn't care that Ms Wie was playing
1 that didn't like the fact that Ms Wie was taking a spot away from a journeyman golfer/has been
1 that didn't like the fact that Ms Wie was playing or any women was playing.
I for myself would not have watched near as much if Ms Wie had not been there.
Sunday I watched the LPGA
3 what a shame she was about to make her charge with a 26 on the back nine
7 will someone please put an end to this sideshow, she's a fine golfer who is simply physically and mentally overmatched
I would hope that all 10 would say that they hoped she would feel better and that perhaps Michelle and her camp would reconsider her schedule and the current career path that she is on.
BJ Wie reminds me of that irresponsible father. Hopefully the Michelle outcome would be different.
Watching her collapse like that made me sick of her parents. Simply disgusting.
BTW Stacy, B.J. Wie is an American. And if you were referring to his ethnic heritage, it's not South Korean, it's just Korean.
