When I wrote about how there wasn't anything ominous in Southern Dunes men-only membership policy, there weren't a lot of people moved enough to disagree about the Arizona course.

Contrast that with the reaction anyone who dares question Michelle Wie's record.

The truth is it's hard to argue with common sense. It's hard to manufacture outrage when it doesn't exist.

This is a very interesting statement indeed.

You have rightfully said that nobody has bothered to argue with your common sense approach to women becoming members at Augusta. I agree.

But more tellingly, you have contrasted that with how many people argue with your stories over Michelle Wie.

Try to stay with me here:
You said it is hard to argue with common sense, as in the women members issue. Then you showed the opposite where people argue with MW stories.

As you have implied, that is because of the lack of common sense in those Michelle Wie stories, and that is why there is a greater response.

I'm glad that you came up with this, even if you didn't mean to.

By the way, with all your common sense points about Augusta membership and why it's not important for women to be allowed to be members, this is probably your best blog so far.

No doubt, you'll be back to insulting Ms. Dangly Earings after her US Open local qualifying, even if she wins by 5 shots. By the way, would that be a win? Winning local qualifying?

How would Baldwin know?
He has a blow up of one of those nice picture of Ms Wie,that Patrick posts occassionaly and he flings sh**... erm, I mean darts at it in hope that he can hit something that will stick.

The closest Baldwin ever came to common sense was hearing a rumor about it from someone else.

Even if Augusta National decided to be fully open to women for membership, there is not a single woman in the world who could get ther: you have to be a zillionnaire you have to be politically or economically extremely powerful you have to be somehow a part of this exclusive establishment you have to stop expressing opinions about the club you have to be invited to accept to be considered to be eventually invited to maybe become member. In fact, NOBODY can become member. Ms Burk surely does not understand what she is trying to accomplish. Wether you agree or not with her is pointless. Why not try to join Opus Dei ?

Great job reinforcing the stereotype of the sport as defiantly sexist, racist and elitist. Women should be barefoot, pregnant and back in the tent with the (negro) help making pimento cheese sandwiches. With moronic, reactionary golf writers like Chris Badwin as friends of the game who needs enemies. Just shut up, Chris. You are not helping grow the game and keep golf courses that real people can play open. We need women players at our course, thanks for driving them away from the sport, jackass.

I am a great fan of Tiger Woods and do
hope that he surpasses the records of
Jack Nicklaus. However, I honestly
do believe that at the same age as
Michelle Wie he would have probably
lost seven of ten matches against her.
At the same age, he did not have the
talent to play at the same level as
professionals. If so, he would have
qualified for the U S Open during
his high school days.
