Hey Chris, Where are your favorite princesses now?

Creamer has tanked more often than a submarine and Pressel couldn't capitilize on her flukey win at the Kraft. And Pressel was the YOUNGEST winner in the LPGA at almost 19 years old.
You and the rat patrol will of course bitch about Wie and her non wins like a bunch of virgin old maids disgussing sex. You don't have any experience yourselves but you still know everything, like those old maids.
Now if I had my wish, I'd rather see Nicole Castrale, Stacy P or Reilly Rankin wining just because they have more grit and determination than your princesses have in spite of all the media love-ins

Christopher Baldwin,
How can you describe Wie as doing nothing, when she was the youngest player to qualify for an lpga event, and was leading amateur at 6 majors.

As for Creamer she showed yet again at the Kraft Nabisco that she is not a major contender. I had tried to explain this to regular commenter Alex, but he didn't understand, so hopefully what happened at the Kraft thought Alex something. By the way, if it were an isolated bad last round from Creamer it wouldn't be a big deal, but it is a pattern of what she does at majors.

As putt4par said, Morgan Pressel followed up her back door major win by missing a cut. Some people say that was bound to happen after winning her first major, but that begs the question why is Zach Johnson doing so well.

At least in your summary you acknowledged that Wie is a bigger drawing card. However as Pressel and Creamer have shown by both winning early in 2007, that didn't give the lpga any great marketing boast, so perhaps they are not the drawing cards you think they are.

Give Laura Davies a break. What she says is probably true in Europe, and Laura is from England. Anyway, who knows? Maybe Laura Davies is a bigger draw than either Paula Creamer jor Morgan Pressel. She is certsinly doing a lot better this week.

Laura Davies, a bigger draw? Well, you certainly can't mis her when she's at an event.

Laura Davies and Lorena Ochoa are two of the nicest people in the womens game.
+5 for the last 2 by Laura.
+6 for the last 6 by Lorena.

What kindness and generosity they showed towards their less wealthy playing partner Brittany Lincicome.
They even let a bogey on the last by Brittany be enough to take her over the line. Such nice people they are.

Well done to Brittany for cleaning up the spills, she could have screwed it up as well, but she stuck in there.

Well, Lincicome has a back door win now, so let's see what she can do with it. She has certainy been in the top 10 more often this year than last year.

I think it is very impressive that Laura is doing as well as she is trying for the one or two wins she still needs for the LPGA Hall of Fame. I hope I didn't jinx her by expressing my support when she was leading with -12 and two holes left.

Congratualations to Brittany Lincicome.

Seems like the anti Pressel gang has me eating crow. My God- she is in free fall. All the way from 1st in scoring average to 2nd. And! All the way from 1st to 3rd in money won. Disaster has struck..............R.L.

Pressel went all the way from 1st place to missed cut.

You might say what does Michelle know about winning, but what does she know about lpga missed cuts either.

When Michelle was 26th at the British Open they were calling it some sort of disaster. 26th is a long way from a missed cut, and proves how badly Pressel stunk it up at the Ginn Open.

Bubbles knows as much about missing cuts as anyone on Planet Earth. And if she continues playing on the same level as before her "injury", she's likely to learn a lot more.

I didn't even mention Michelle. Just talked about Pressel. So she missed a cut. She missed a couple last year. Everyone on the PGA tour and LPGA tour misses cuts.

I think if you asked for a show of hands and asked any regular player on either tour if they would like to have a record after 5 tournaments played on tour of two top fives, a 13th, a win at the only major of the year, and a MISSED CUT, you would see a sea of hands.

R.L., just look upon Alex as one of those old maids I mentioned. They are great at jumping to conclusions, rumors, gossip and when all else fails, make something up. Kind of like Chris Baldwin does when he has nothing better to do.
