Why not try a new dance, Chris? I'm quite sure that at this point in time, everyone
who gives a shit, knows your true feelings

Why not try some real journalism for

Headlines in Wie Warrior Gazette: Michelle gets top twenty finish. Scores only 21 strokes from her first LPGA win. "I feel that my game is really good right now" Bubbles bubbled. "It's getting really close. I'm learning a lot out there." "My 234 yard driving average is proof that my game is right on."

I'm not as concerned about Wie's scores as I am about the bizarrity that revolves around her. All these requests for rulings are a response to the Bamberger thing of a year ago, but enough is enough. Learn the rules, lassie, and stop holding up play. What is even freakier is the sideshow nature of her play. How bad a putter is this kid? How much worse will she be when she gets older? We truly are seeing the results of not putting for enough age-appropriate victories as a younger teen. She has yet to learn how to bring it home... you don't learn concentration at 15 versus Annika, you learn it at 15 versus gum-chewing Buffy Kneesocks. Too bad you can't go home again.

Paula is a terrific young professional golfer. It is also nice to have a player to compare with Wie at age 17. Creamer played three LPGA events at age 17. Wegman's (tied for 67th), Mt. Vintage (tied for 71st), and the U.S. Women's Open (missed the cut). It will be worthwhile to see if Michelle can meet or exceed the benchmarks set by the highly talented Paula Creamer at age 17.

Michelle Wie is a train wreck right now. Oh, sure she's better than any of us, but none of us were anointed as "The Future of Golf". If she is the future, the future is dim.

Her parents, her sponsors, and the media are to blame for ruining this poor kid and turning her into a quivering mess. She needs to take a year off of the professional tours and get her shit back together, learn some composure, study the rule book, dress appropriately, and graduate high school before trying to conquer golf again.

Again, the Creamer record as a 17 yr. old pro is:

Wegman's (tied for 67th)
Mt. Vintage (tied for 71st)
U.S. Women's Open (missed the cut)

We're optimistic that MW will beat Creamer's mark in the coming year.

Here's some questions for all of you apologists:

Is she playing better or worse than she was at the beginning of the year?

And what were you all predicting for her when the season started? Did she meet those expectations?

Calling this year anything but a huge disappointment is revisionist history by the Wie Warriors. They expected multiple wins, at least one major, and global domination. wheat they got was a fragile teen crumbling under pressure, spending more time getting favorable rulings from intimidated marshalls than hoisting trophies.

Michelle Wie has posted the best results for a 16 or 17 year old pro golfer in the 100+ year history of the pro game. If that isn't good enough for you Grinches, then there's no help for ya.

Correction noted.
Here's Creamer's record in LPGA events at age 17 - it is now clear that MW blew away Creamer's record at 16 yrs old.

3/28/04 Kraft Nabisco T-45
6/20/04 ShopRite LPGA Classic T-2
6/27/04 Wegmans Rochester LPGA 13

According to some of the bloggers on this thread Michelle Wie's career is over and she should never play professional golf again.

Winning is everything to these amateur hacks and a successful year is measured by the number of wins no matter what their age or experience would be.

Michelle's only problems right now are over coaching and over reaching for success. Every golfer goes through a period when their game slumps and they try too hard to regain their form.

The best golfers in the world have faced this challenge and worked to regain their form. How about Karrie and Se Ri this year or one Eldick Woods who regained his form of 2000.

It happens, so get over it already.

I would call Michelle's first professional year, "The good, the bad and the ugly".

The Good: Consistent high finishes during the early part of the year, including three top 5's in the the four majors. A great run for any golfer regardless of age or gender.

The Bad: Her pattern of getting close in these events, but not winning and her even more alarming tendency to make shall we say questionable plays during crunch time. An alarming lack of knowledge of the rules of golf.

The Ugly: Her attempts to compete against the men, which resulted in two consecutive last place finishes. It is obvious to all that she should try beating the women before she takes her undeveloped game to the next level.

My advice to Michelle would be to dump Leadbetter, ditch the idea of playing with the men for now and focus on beating the women, Lorena Ochoa should be enough of a challenge for many years to come. I would also, as a Public Relations person work with her on her post round interviews, which are beginning to border on the insane. Michelle when you lose a tournament by 21 strokes, you and your game are not close, it was not bad breaks, and it is most definitely not awesome--You can admit that you are not playing well and that there is a problem with your game, people will actually like and respect you more for your honesty.

Good. Now that we have the facts straight, I will acknowledge that MW has had the most successful year of any 16 year old in the LPGA.

However, in return, I hope you will acknowledge that it is foolish to make this type of comparison because no junior golfer has ever been given as many opportunities as MW has.

I HAVE had it. Reading these blogs is a
sorry journey through the dark side of
the human soul. Yes, there are some good
and reasonable people here, and on related
blogs about Michelle Wie, but the main
message that comes through all too loud
is the pathetic need of so many to take
joy in tearing apart a 16 year old super
talented athlete we should all be wishing
well. Michelle Wie's upbeat rendering
of her performance may piss your off, but
she is just trying to keep her head
above water like EVERY other golfer when
they play badly --- including Tiger.
Paula Creamer has enough class to not
want to be put in opposition to MW, so
let's just stop this now.

Michelle Wie's play is going downhill so
rapidly that I wonder whether her
confidence is already severely broken.
Look folks, what we want is for her to do
well, and all of the preying media and bloggers
should think carefully about
contributing to the undoing of anyone
with this much talent, whether MW, PC,
or MP, or whoever. She is in trouble, and
needs good advice, the right help, and to
clear her head --- because the only
thing left in the way of her blowing
everyone off the course is her head (see
last round performances under pressure),
and that is the most fragile part of the
game, right? In the meantime, stop
revelling in her failures.

One more thing: if you respond to this
with a blizzard of passive-aggressive
crap thrown at me, you will have missed
the point.

Had-it, Pal, who died and made you boss? I don't revel in Bubbles' failures. According to her imbecile fans, she has had no failures. I find entertainment in the convoluted reasoning of her apologists, the Wie Warriors. I never expected her to make a PGA cut, qualify for the Masters and/or the US Open, or make the Ryder Cup team. Bubbles and many of her deranged acolytes confidently predicted such miracles for the earringed one. And for a barrel of laughs, nothing quite equals her TV interviews. Bubbles is fast becoming the "Baghdad Bob" of women's golf.

Did I really read in the paper today that MW stated that "My game really wasn't as bad as I scored, I mean like well I really thought I played pretty well, you know, I kinda just got up against a few rocks a couple times...giggle...but really I think I played much better than what my score was". Holy crap, who is this chick. She just got completely embarassed by by LPGA players. The best of the LPGA showed MW that she has lightyears of improvement needed to contend on the LPGA. And none of them are out there saying "I'm going to play in the Masters when I grow up, oh and in the Ryder Cup too, that would be cool". What MW needs is a muzzle and a sense of reality. And corporate sponsors need to stop shelling out dough and ruining children who have not proven that they are worth the millions. Where is Paula Creamer's 10 million.? Hell where is Ochoa's? Ridiculous.

Michelle Wie is simply what we all knew she was, a very talented young female golfer. Nothing more and nothing less. She has simply revealed what anyone who wasn't blinded by all the hype already knew. She is not capable of competing with the men, but is capable of competing with the women (she's proven this even though she has played poorly recently.)

Hopefully, the hype will now all die down and she can go try to beat the chicks before she comes back and trys to make a cut on the men's tour. She's not there yet, physically or emotionally. She really does need to jump out of the fantasy land her handlers have created and get real. It's one thing to keep your chin up and keep a positive attitude; but it's quite another to continually make excuses or fool yourself about how you're playing. Her post round interviews are so full of crap you'd think she was an outhouse.

"hehehehe, I know I'm 4 over but I think I've got a really good round in me." What would that be, a 75?

Seven top-tens in Majors for Wie, one for Creamer. Two LPGA wins (so far) for Creamer, none (yet) for Wie. You can slice and dice the stats to your hearts content - it doesn't mean squat.

Creamer and Wie are both exceptional young pro golfers. Both will likely have outstanding careers. This hateful petty little contention exists chiefly in the shriveled cortex of Baldwin and his groupies.

Hooray for Creamer! Hooray for Wie! May they both have long and productive careers! And, may Baldwin and his obedient little bitches find a life. I mean that sincerely and in the warmest and kindest way.

I agree with the school of thought that Michelle will begin to have her "A" game working at about age 22 - the same age most golf legends blossom. That gives the Grinches until the year 2011 to tell everyone that they "knew all along" that MW was a great champion.

The pipedreams of the Wie Warriors have taken on a long range perspective. Now Jim C, who at various times has predicted that Bubbles would this year win a major or two on the LPGA tour and would make the cut at the John Deere and WIN both the Evian and the Weetabix and finish top five at the Samsung, now projects a "what if" into the mix about the possibility of Bubbles winning NEXT YEAR'S Samsung! Talk about wishful thinking! But, just when one thinks he has heard it all, Ghet Rheel chimes in with the "coup de grace" of Wie-wee apologism. Far exceeding anything a diehard Cubs fan could conjure up, he goes way beyond "wait 'til next year." His rallying cry is now "Wait 'til 2011!" I figured that the Wie Warriors would come up with some classics, but these beat anything I've ever stuck an axe in.

Ghet--Did you finally stop taking your estrogen pills? Maybe your testicles just now decided to descend. The man who cries everytime someone insults Michelle Wie is suddenly questioning people's masculinity, using deragatory language and challenging people to fights. What a joke! What's the matter the attorney general's office not taking your calls anymore, how about child protection services--You are a loon. Despite all the praise you have heaped upon her, Michelle is still winless and has in fact regressed with regards to her progress. She is further away now from ever winning anything then she was 2 years ago and her future seems more uncertain than ever. I know you must be frustrated, but really predicting 2011 as her breakout year is just so sad. By 2011 Michelle Wie will be serving as a blueprint for teen pheonoms gone wrong. My advice to you would be admit that Michelle has been overhyped, acknowledge that her critics have been right along about the path she has chosen being ill-suited for her development and don't threaten people on this site it does not become you, stick to citing obscure stats, hollow legal threats and embrace the pantywaist we all know you to be.

Please understand that when I call you Grinches "bitches" it does not question your gender. I mean to say that each of you are, "a man considered to be weak or contemptible" Please see definition 2,c above. Hope that helps.

Unlike your predictions for MW, my 2011 call is based on the long history of the game of golf. Palmer, Nicklaus, Woods, Jones, Hogan, Nelson, etc. and etc., first achieved their "A" game form at about age 21 to 22. I ask you. What pro golfer since 1900 achieved their top form at age 16 or 17?

"…challenging people to fights"? What nonsense. Never happened.

You Grinches verbally attack every person who posts anything positive about Michelle. It is a long established pattern. If someone tosses an occasional insult back at you, then you come unraveled. Pathetic, but predictable.

Juvenile law is quite different from other forms. If you are relying on the geriatric-junior-partner for your legal protection against verbal abuse that could be construed as damaging to a child, ask him for a letter of indemnification... and good luck. By the way, the "anonymous veil" of the internet is imaginary. With some elementary hacking, a good forensic computer tech can identify you in six to eight seconds max. Have a great day.

Gheet what you fail to understand is that us 'Wie haters' are not haters at all. We just weren't fooled by all the hype. Michelle Wie is very likely going to be a great female golfer. But that's it. Another good chick golfer. The reality is that if that's all she is, then nobody cares. And don't think her handlers don't know this. That's why they have chosen the path they have. It's all about the money baby. They understand that once people realized that Michelle was just a good female golfer, nobody would care and her marketability would be limited. But, create all this hype about Michelle being the second coming, gonna dominate the women at 16 and take on the men, and all the sudden you have interest and big $. They've played the media to a t, monetized their daughter and can now laugh all the way to the bank.

Of course, as soon as the novelty wears off and the hype recedes, she'll be just another good chick golfer and nobody will care anymore. But she will be very rich.

So as a fan not blinded by the hype, please understand if we don't drop to our knees and bow at the mention of her as you Wie Warriors do. Really, does anyone even watch women's golf?

Ghett, you haven't got it yet. Alex, Ford and the rest of their compatriots float out their visceral ramblings in an effort to elicit responses such as yours from their inane diatribe.

By lending credence to these neanderthals you propagate their entertainment.

Michelle had a very fine first year as a professional golfer with some bad outings at the beginning and end. Five top fives in a row with three of them coming in a LPGA major is a remarkable feat for a golfer of any age and unheard of for a sixteen year old.

I once asked the opposition to name one other player who had accomplished this feat as a professional golfer and their keyboards fell silent.

Wie supporters put forth facts or statistics and they put forth venomous attacks on a teenager.

They are void of any class wouldn't you say Ghett?

The word dim-witted comes to mind in describing the Grinches. They show a hack's grasp of the game. To believe that a 16 or 17 year old will not vastly improve his or her game is pathetically naive. Further, for Baldwin to say that Creamer is in a slump shows his ignorance of the game. Creamer will also gain momentum in the next few years. Baldwin should stick to pimping golf course condos - he may actually know something about that. Baldwin actually predicted that Michelle will never win an LPGA event! What a fool.

Oh, One-Putt, I think "Ford" wants to be called "Arnie" of "Chuck Schick" now... something like that. CS does make one good point - dump Ledbetter. Hank Haney is the top swing coach now.

Here's a fact for you Ghet: Michelle wie is winless in 35 LPGA starts and has yet to make a cut on the PGA tour.

This wouldn't be a problem if she were not the recipient of a worldwide marketing/ad/media campaign billing her as someone who would easily dominate the women's game and contend against men.

I have seen many a "Wie Grinch" acknowledge that she posseses a world of talent and potential, but have yet to see a "Wie Fanatic" admit that her game and development have been greatly exagerated.

Michelle is doing GREAT for someone who turned 17 a week or so ago. Not so-so, not pretty good, not above average, but BETTER THAN ANY GOLFER HER AGE IN THE HISTORY OF THE GAME!!! Pea-brained Grinches can't grasp that. I once thought they were naive. I'm becoming convinced that they actually are THAT STUPID. Truly amazing.

Grinches can't name any pro golfers who hit their stride before 21 or 22. Grinches can't name any pro golfer in the history of the game with a better record than Wie at age 16 or 17. To the Grinches, not winning at age 16 somehow equates with failure. I repeat, they're dim-witted.

I know it drives them crazy, but for any reasonable person, Michelle has at least until 2011 to roll out her "A" game. You know, like every other great pro golfer in the history of the game.

One thing puzzles me. Who benefits from the Grinches' constant abuse of golf's brightest rising star? Apart from Adidas, of course.

When will you Wie Warriors start referring to Bubbles' age as seventeen, not sixteen or seventeen? And Ghet Rheel, your mentioning Bubbles' name in the same sentence with Nicklaus, Woods, Hogan, and Nelson is sacrilegious, and might even be actionable.
2006-10-20 @ 08:04
Comment from: Alex [Visitor]
Perhaps the biggest myth surrounding the career of Bubbles are those phantom 300+ yard drives that end up straight down the middle. I've only seen her play once in person; at the 2005 men's amateur in Lebanon, Ohio. Ohio. My wife was anxious to see some of those 300 yarders. In twelve holes of stroke play in which she did succeed on qualifying, she was consistently outdriven by her playing partners, all verifiable amateurs. In her final match, in which she was trounced 5 and 4, her opponent Clay Ogden must have outdriven her by an average of 30 to 50 yards. Needless to say, my wife was very disappointed in Bubbles' ability off the tee. In the recent Samsung, MW was very close to the bottom in driving distance. and absolutely LAST in driving accuracy. Along with her shaky putting, her game needs a lot of work to be a first tier performer on the LPGA tour. As for Bubbles being competitive with the men as several Wie Warriors used to confidently predict, that will never happen in the lifetime of the youngest child on this planet.

Wie is one of the longest drivers of all female golfers. But compared to men, amateur or otherwise, she's maybe close to average. Where she really loses ground to the mean is on raw strength, for coming out of the rough. She gains a lot of her distance from her big stature combined with excellent technique.

Grinches - learn your elementary golf history before you spout off. What pro golfer in the history of golf has achieved their "A" game prior to age 21 or 22? Nicklaus, Palmer, Miller, Trevino, Jones, Woods, Nelson, Norman, Singh, Watson, Kite, Snead, etc, etc, etc. did not, and Wie (or Creamer) can not be expected to either.

In addition to the complexities of the full swing and other strokes, there is far too much depth of knowledge (course knowledge, course management, composure, etc.) to be mastered before about the age of 22.

Grinches - Try to be patient. You must wait until Oct of 2011 before your Grinch rantings have any shred of validity in light of the history of the game.

Shanks it is amazing that Michelle has done as well as she has this year with the inferior equipment she carries in her bag. Nike might make good sneakers with child labor in Asia, but playing with their drivers is like swinging a brick tied to a rope.

Don't take my word for it, just check out her driving stats when she carried a TaylorMade driver in her bag.

On the LPGA tour there might be a handful of women who still play forged blade irons. Why play irons that have a sweetspot the size of a dime when you can play irons with a sweetspot the size of a half dollar?

A misshit with a forged iron is quite ugly, while one with a cavity back is either short or long and somewhere near the green.

The only reason to play forged would be when you hit it "perfect" they outdistance other irons. Distance is really not much of a factor on LPGA courses.

Tiger overcame his inferior driver with brute strength and creativity developed over the years. It just wouldn't be fair to the tour if he dropped an R7 in his bag.

Maybe Michelle could paint the bottom of a R7 yellow and drop one in her bag to improve her accuracy and confidence off the tee?

Ghet SurRheel, When you name the string of golfing immortals into which you'd like to involve Bubbles, it is noted that all those mentioned are male golfers. In case you haven't noticed, Bubbles is of the opposite sex. To draw comparisons between the careers of established PGA stars and a winless seventeen year old female is laughable. But I'm sure that you already know this.

Alex is confused... hard to argue with that. Two things are clear to the rest of the world:

1. Pro golfers begin to achieve their "A" game at age 22 or so, not 16 or 17.

No pro golfer in the history of the game has matched Michelle's record at age 16 or 17.

Shanks, Are you quite sure about Bubbles alleged length off the tee? In the recent Samsung, she was 15th of 20 golfers in driving length. Sophie Gustafson averaged almost 30 yards per drive more than Bubbles. Lorena, Annika, Hurst and Lincicome averaged close to 20 yards better than MW. As far as driving accuracy was concerned at the Samsung, it was no contest. Bubbles was dead last in that department. The Gifted One hit only 36 fairways, while the rest of the field hit an average of more than 45, with Pak, Webb, Creamer and Lee hitting 50 each. Did her driving length and accuracy simply desert her?

Current LPGA leading rookie Seon Hwa Lee
turned pro at 14 in Korea.

Nike has other irons besides the ones
Wie is using--and indeed, on the internet
they seem to be trying to get rid of
the forged blade irons, at a special
sale price they won't tell you until you
add it to the cart.

The fact that Michelle has been using
clubs that are obviously the wrong clubs
for her on the LPGA with a view to
developing her ability to be able to
compete on the PGA down the road is
something that should convince people
that she has been serious about trying
to compete against the men at the highest
level. But perhaps now is the time to
sacrifice a little length and use some
of the other clubs in the Nike line.

Jim C Nike carries fifteen players on their payroll and only Woods, Casey and Wie play Nike blades. Most of the other players use the Nike Pro Combo (cavity back) irons with the exception of two players (Sabbatini and Park) who use Nike NDS (cavity back) irons.

Maybe it is time for Michelle to join the majority and win some tournaments. It did surprise me when I also discovered many of these players drop an R7 in their bag for a driver. No Sasquatch sightings in their bags. They left the brick on a rope at home.

So who is twisting the arms of tournamernt selection officials to offer an exemption in the first place Alex?

I believe Michelle received at least three other offers for an exemption over the season and maybe more we didn't hear about.

Do the tournaments have anything to gain by offering an exemption to Michelle over a PGA or LPGA bottom feeder?

No definite answers as usual from the Wie-nuts. One-Putt dances around by asking his own questions in reply to mine. Nothing unusual there. But Ghet SurRheel tosses out the clincher. He says, apparently with a straight face, "By the year 2011, we will all BEGIN to see how good Bubbles MAY become." Way to go, Ghet! No equivocation there! Do any of you Wie Warriors believe that there are any teen or pre-teen girls anywhere on the face of the earth who might arise in the golfing world to pose a challenge to Bubbles? Or, when that magical month of October 2011 rolls around will Bubbles have so dominated the Women's golfing scene that no others will be even close? Will Lorena and all the young Korean ladies who have won tournaments be so discouraged by Bubbles' roaring string of triumphs as to be disheartened and quit the game? What else does the year 2011 hold in store?

The truth is that the true level of Michelle Wie's accomplishments and game fall somewhere in-between the "Grinches" and the "Fanatics". Michelle's career has been far from a failure to this point, but she is not as she was billed either.

Wie is indeed, well-spoken... and in four languages for that matter. Only a junior high school English teacher with a stick up his butt would object to a teen saying "you know" or "like". She connects with her generation. Next time you're in front of scores of TV cameras from the international press (knowing every word you say will be scrutinized), tell me your not tossing a few "ums"and "you knows" in there to give you a little extra time to consider your words. If not, you're a damned fool.

Further, MW focuses on the positives of her game. Smart girl. Only hacks carry around all their errors for everlasting self-flagellation. Mickelson stewed in his blunders for a while this summer. How'd it work for him?

Hundreds of amateurs over the years have gotten exemptions for LPGA events. None have come close to Wie's success at ages 13, 14, 15, or 16.

By the way, Woods made his first PGA cut at age 19. That gives MW about three seasons to meet that mark.

Tiger didn't make his first cut until he was 19 years and a little over 3 months old, that gives MW two years and a few months to make her first PGA cut and be the "next" Tiger Woods.

What you fail to mention though, is that Tiger made his first cut at the Masters. He then followed it up with two PGA tour wins at the age of 20 to go along with 7 top 10 finishes (out of 13 tries). Oh, and by the way, he then won the Masters at the age of 21.

In order to match Tiger, MW only has 2 more tries to make the cut at the Masters before she is too old, and she only has less than 4 more years to secure her first PGA tour victory.

So....just how far are you willing to go out on a limb with your Tiger Woods comparisons?

Sorenstam - 24

Average age - 24

Wie will turn 24 in 2013. That's about seven years from now. Shall I listen to a few sad little Grinches and dismiss MW at age 17 (never mind 7 top ten’s in Majors)? Or shall I take notice of the track record of the world's greatest golfers and enjoy watching Wie's ascent in the next seven years or so? Think I'll keep my money on Wie.

If you have an argument to make, then make it, and stick to it. Or admit when you are wrong.

As you love to point out, MW has had a more successful junior career in the pro ranks than any other junior golfer.

DUH! Even Tiger only played in 4 PGA events prior to turning 18 and he didn't play in his first event until after he turned 17.

You simply cannot repeatedly defend MW's unique path to the professional ranks, that no one else has ever taken, while at the same time, using those unique results to diefy Michelle Wie.

Tiger never played on the PGA tour at the age of 16. Just because MW has, does not make her a better golfer.

Confused Grinches again. Common problem around here.

Like most Wie fans, I'm a big Woods fan, too. Also a fan of Sorenstam, Pak, Creamer, Love, Wier, and many others. See no need to pick only one, but if that's what floats yer boat, go for it!

When will Wie develop her mature "A" game? You'd have to be a moron to think at age 15, 16, 17, or 18. Nearly all good pros begin to find their game at about 22. For MW that would be in the year 2011. The age for a first pro win for legends like Hogan, Woods, Snead, and Sorenstam averages to 24 years old. That would be 2013. So between 2011 and 2013 would be reasonable (unless your brain is pickled).

You Griches can't have it both ways. You claim she can't hold a candle to the legends mentioned above (avg. age of first win, 24). Yet you presume to claim that she somehow does not deserve to have until age 22 to 24 to polish and perfect her skills.

I'm curious... about what time do you Grinches usually get stinkin' drunk? Maybe try posting in the morning... after the hangover goes away and before the shakes hit you.

Nearly everyone is on to the Grinch's game by now. Here's a recap of how they operate:

1. Set HUGELY unrealistically high benchmarks for teenaged girls and then brutally castigate them when they don't meet said marks.
2. Stake out a never-ending presence on blogs like these, and verbally abuse any supporter of the targeted teen.

One wonders why.

However, the fact remains that REAL BENCHMARKS set by the all-time golf legends are the only ones that matter. If Michelle gats her "A" game cooking by age 24 she'll be in perfect unison with most golf legends. Anything she accomplishes prior to age 24 is icing on the cake.

Michelle, these clowns will always be around. Learn to tune them out. They're just a fact of life... like cockroaches, rats, mosquitos, etc. If you win 3 Majors in one year they'll scream that you've failed because you didn't win four. They are blathering idiots. Let others deal with them. You ignore them as best you can.

You are paying a PR firm and an agent big bucks. It doesn't hurt to have your dad give them a kick in the butt once in a while.

Ghet SurRheel, That was slightly better but still weak. You are definitely losing your touch. You probably could use some lengthy R&R.

Wie all washed up? Are you Grinches insane? No, really, that's a serious question. Are ya? Hey, insane would be better than stupid.

Ghet SurRheel, I thought that you said slicing and dicing stats didn't mean squat? That was cherry picking and mincing at their best(or is it worst?)in your last post. Whoever said that Bubbles is all washed up? To be in the "all washed up" category, a golfer would have first had to have a successful career. No junior titles, no amateur titles. no LPGA titles, and no Nationwide, European, and PGA cuts made does not evolve into a successful career. Oh, I forgot! The rallying cry of the Wie Warriors is now "Wait until 2013."

Michelle Wie did win 7 of 9 junior Oahu
tournaments at age 9. She did win the
national WAPL at 13, and this past year
she did win her Local Qualifier for the
US Open against the men. Alex must not
think much of men's golf in America if
he considers a typical American girl's
Junior Tournament to be more competitive
than a Local US Open Qualifier.

Top-five's in Majors is about as solid a stat as you can get. Anyone who doesn't understand the significance of that stat has no knowledge of the game of golf. 6 top-fives before age 17 is record-breaking by any standard. The average age for a first win by the all-time golfing greats is 24. Only a self-deluded moron would pan Wie's prospects before 2013.
