WKW, Much has been written lately about Michelle Wie's success as a salesman for Nike and Omega, but I have yet to see her picture in an advertisement for either product. Where are her endorsements being published? It has been said that she is immensely popular in Korea and the rest of Asia and the Orient. It seems sort of strange since Korea especially has a slew of home-grown female golfers of their own, several of whom have won LPGA events more than once. One would think that there would be considerable resentment among the Korean ladies for an interloper like Bubbles and her entourage.

The operative word in PGA and LPGA is "professional". So, as always in such matters, money talks and bullsh*t walks.

So, Ghet, I expect then that you'll be walking away soon.

Eight and a half hours and the lame quote above is the best line you could come up with? Weak.

Judge Smails, This thread doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Ghet Rheel seems to have lost his fire. So I went to the link above titled "looked outclassed" which is about two months old and concerns Bubbles' outstanding performance at the Omega. Some of Ghet's posts there are priceless. Way beyond anything he has come up with lately. Maybe when Bubbles gets back in action (or is it inaction) at the Casio, Ghet will again become inspired.

"One of the other impressive numbers coming out of the story is Finchem's salary, which comes in at more than $4 million a year. Compare that to LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Biven's take of $525,000, and one thing about modern society becomes painfully clear - Bivens is overpaid by say, half a million or so."

This is crap...Bivens is shaking the trees by the roots, just as Finchem did when he replaced Beman. She has the better product (more personality, more attractive to the opposite gender, improving skills), so she should move dangerously toward prosperity. It is Finchem who is overpaid, lobo.

This is crap."

Ron I think their bosses (the players) might disagree with you based on 2006 season results.

On the PGA Tour in 2005 seventy seven players earned a million dollars or more, so far this season ninety three players have surpassed the one million dollar mark. This is a seventeen percent plus increase in one year and the season is not over.

Ron the LPGA Tour for 2005 shows six players who earned a million dollars or more in official money. This season the LPGA so far has nine players earning more than a million dollars, an increase of 33 plus percent.

Ron it is rapidly getting to the point that in order to hold a PGA exempt card a player will have to earn over $1,000,000 in the previous season.

Players on both tours must feel their Chief Executives are worth every penny they earn. They showed them the money.

For someone who reads these boards every once and a while, it is sad that the same posters comment again and again, even when Wie isn't playing much.

Did anyone else notice that Alex is already counting down the time to Michelle's next appearance at the Casio.

It is one thing for a fan to be so obsessed, for an anti-Wie person to live their lives in such a meaningless way is sad, and deserves much pity from normal people.

By the way, sorry to single out Alex in that, there are also other cronies just like him. Get a life guys, get a hobby and preferably one that doesn't involved making fun of a kid and enjoying any mistakes she might make.

Alex,

I think that poor Ghet may just be spend psychologically and emotionally. He needs to take the winter off so he can recharge his batteries.

Her 2006 season has NOT ended yet, Bill! So you cant say her 2006 season had a miserable end......She will be playing against Colin Montgomery and Japanese men in the Casio tournament on Thanksgiving weekend......last year she missed the cut there by only one shot........

Stanley, I do indeed have a hobby. It is a most satisfying hobby. It involves rattling the cages of guys like you and Ghet Rheel, fawning sycophants for spoiled brats like Bubbles. To a brown noser like you, Bubbles is a kid who might make mistakes. In fact, she is a PROFESSIONAL, and has been one for a long time. The fact that she does act or play like a pro doesn't make her any less of one.

Judge Smails, Some more irony from Ghet SurRheel. He has the gonads to chide people for being OBSESSED WITH BUBBLES! This from a character who knows absolutely everything about the earringed one and her family. I agree, though, that Ghet is about out of gas. He doesn't talk anymore about pending lawsuits against Wie critics, or his favorite, "Astroturf."

Three top-fives in four LPGA Majors at the age of 16! The grinches want to spin THAT into a failure - (lotsa luck). MW will have her full-on "A" game at about age 24 (24 is the average age that golfing legends start winning big). The grinches have lost all credibility. They've become an isolated chorus of whining bitches (weak contemptible men).

Ghet SurRheel, Same old same old. You're in a slump. Admit it. One-Putt has also hit the skids. One prognostication of yours that does have some promise as entertainment is that Bubbles will set the golfing world on fire at age TWENTY-FOUR! You must have consulted your dreambook for that one. According to previous predictions by Wie Warriors, in seven years Bubbles will be burning the midnight oil studying for her PhD in economics in order to be able to self-manage her vast financial empire.

Wake me up in seven years when Michelle actually accomplishes something...From a girl who was primed to takeover the LPGA tour at age 13 and beat the men soon after to an also ran who will not fully blossom until age 24--My how the mighty have fallen.

It is mildly amusing, the way these Wiemen revise forecasts more than weathermen. Okay, so now they have given themselves a seven year window in which to wax passionate about Bubbles' great potential and prospects. And now I suppose we'll be hearing: she's only seventeen, she's only eighteen, she's only nineteen . . . she's only twenty-three!

The only thing I want to know is if we'll all still be alive when Bubbles finally comes into her own.

Are the grinches actually confused by a few overzealous golf writers hype? Maybe. How sad.

The average age that golf legends like Palmer, Snead, Nicklaus, Sorenstam, Hogan, Inkster, Woods, Nelson, etc. began dominating is 24. Do the grinches think Wie is superior to this group? Why else would they expect MW to dominate sooner than age 24?

If age 24 is soon enough for the above golf-greats to bring their "A" game, then it is soon enough for Wie.

Grinches want to pass final judgment on MW's career at age 17 - How silly.

Bubbles has been assigned a magic number by Ghet SurRheel. That number ,dear readers, is TWENTY-FOUR, also can be written "24". A few months back, Ol' Ghet had set the number at 22, but after consulting his crystal ball and his tarot cards, TWENTY-FOUR is now the age where Bubbles will boom out. Ghet, you slay me. Keep 'em coming, this is hilarious!

Comment from: Ghet Rheel [Visitor] Email
Man, you grinches are easy. 22 is the average age the above golf-legends won their first pro event. 24 is the average age the same group began dominating on tour (Player of the Year Award or equivalent). Do you guys know ANYTHING about the history of the game of golf? Obviously not.

Alex,

I think we need to bear in mind that Ghet is a liberal, so vacillation is the order of the day. Hey, I'm sure he favored John Kerry, who voted for the war before he voted against it.

Alex you said "To a brown noser like you, Bubbles is a kid who might make mistakes. In fact, she is a PROFESSIONAL, and has been one for a long time. The fact that she does act or play like a pro doesn't make her any less of one."

That is really funny Alex. You say she has been a pro a long time. Then again a year is probably indeed appears to be a long time for someone like yourself who is obviously a teenager. When you get more mature and a little older, you will realise that a year is not actually really that long after all.

As regards, not playing like a professional, where are you getting that from? She earned over 700,000 in 8 lpga events, that is a fairly good definition of playing like a poro.
In acting like a pro, she has certainly acted like a pro. She has acted very dignified and didn't throw any temper tantrums even when in last position. How many of the guys have thrown clubs around when not playing well?
And she made a penalty, but it was nowhere near as big a mistake as Annika made when she was penalised for messing with a divot, that should have been obvious that she couldn't do that to such a great professional.

By the way poro should be pro, just a little typo, there tend to be grammer police on those golf boards.

By the way, how many of the anti-wie people are ticking off there calanders waiting for the Casio tournament?

We're somehow expected to forget the fact that MW earned $700,000 in eight LPGA events, had 3 top-five's in Majors, and did these things while 16 years of age. They're delusional at best.

Stanley,

You forgot about the spelling police. The word "grammar" doesn't contain an "e." Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

Ghet Rheel,

Your title of Ghet Rheel is very apt for saying to the bashers to get real on the Michelle Wie related issues.

If they want to attack her pga record that is one thing, although she has done quite well there too, but for them to attack her lpga record is delusional as you have described it.

Lol. Alex and Judge Smells back to their old tricks again: "Will discuss anything but golf." Experts at everything but golf. That this is a golf blogging site is but a little nuisance to the die hard bloggers extraordinnaire. ----Ducking----

I think it is dawning on even the dumbest Grinches that MW (and any other young pro golfer) has until age 24 before any knowledgeable golf fan can intelligently pass judgment on their game. I guess they're left with nothing to do but proofread other people's posts. Get a life, Grinches.
