Actually, I was waiting for someone to write about Pressel's fade from contention. She seems to have the same "issues" as Wie when it comes to closing out a tournament. One only needs to look at Tiger (12-0 or something equally ridiculous when leading a major after three rounds) to see how a "closer" closes. Pressel clearly chokes as much as Wie when coming down the stretch of a tournament. Maybe it's the crowds, maybe it's just a lack of maturity. Either way, it'll be really interesting to see which one breaks through first.

"Lefty will never be the same."

Thats a strange statement because it assumes Phil was a strong finisher until the US open. But that's not necessarily true. So technically its possible all he lost was the groove in his recent success run.

But look at Tiger, he failed to make the cut for the US open, Phil was winning, and most were then ready to proclaim Phil the #1. Tiger got over his personal cirsumstances to a degree, took some time off, returned to finish what began as a promising year for him.

Damn you, WKW! I bet the farm on Steve Flesch. They're going to come collecting and break my arms and legs when they realize I don't have a farm.

Ya' know, Pressel won a bunch of junior events, unlike Wie. She did blow off the four great years of college, like Wie seems intent on doing. Is it possible that, although the female bod matures enough to play competitively, the mind does not? And, to counter that argument, why do teen gymnasts "close the deal," while teen golfers seem unable to do so?

Teen gymnasts "close the deal" because they are generally competing against other teens. Someone has to win.

btw, in response to ToddCommish's comment that Pressel chokes "as much as Wie when coming down the stretch", that's a major understatement. Pressel seems lately to choke around the 16th hole whether she's near the lead or not. Wie seems to be much stronger mentally. Hopefully, Pressel will get past this stage.
