"Sure Michelle Wie will have to wait much longer than even Natalie Gulbis did (in terms of tournaments played) to ever even dream of a win. "

So Stanley, enlighten us... which year will MW obtain her first professional victory on the LPGA tour?

It took Natalie over 140 lpga events. Even you have to admit Chris' statement was ridiculous at best.

It will take MW at least 140 fine lines? Including withdrawals to be fair.

Wie is now a player who scores 80s more than 70s. This kind of person should not be allowed to play at any pro tournaments. It's a joke for Chris to talk about any future victories for Wie. Her career is over. Period.

"What kind of a pro admits to a one-under being a milestone?"

Er, perhaps one who has recently been out injured for 5 months?

** Stanley, why is the 140 lpga events comment so ridiculous? The #1 player Lorena Ochoa still doesn't have a major, so what makes you think Michelle Wie will do any better shooting in the mid-80's?

** Jason, Phil Mickelson was sidelined with the same injury and has stayed pretty competitive

Annika Soresnatm is still recovering from an injury much worse than Wie's and is posting top 10 finishes. Come on people, Michelle Wie is just another washout.

________
She had a dip in form that lead to some 72s and 74s and one 75 between the British Open & Samsung. Those were her worst ladies events.

The thing of shooting ladies at women's events only happened after the injury which was indeed a serious injury and was bound to take some time to come back from.
Her performance at the Evian with 3 decent rounds is a good sign.

That should read,
shooting 80s not shooting ladies.

Hey Stanley, just back up and look at who the blowloads are making all the goofy preditions and statements.

They are all wingnuts but mostly harmless.

But if I don't correct it, the noisiest wingnut of them all will yap about my spelling.

So Stanley, it was a reasonable question, despite all your whining.

In which year will Michelle Wie win her first LPGA tournament? And I guess specifically her first stroke-play LPGA tournament because the Wie Warriors dismiss Brittany Lincicome's match play victory so frequently.

But here's the key thing. Creamer's won. Pressel's won. And now Gulbis has won. It's looking ugly for the Wie Warriors.

So when will Wie get that first LPGA win? Which year?

It's a good question: The only Kournikova left is Wie.

Wie is rapidly approaching Andrea Jaeger stage with her seemingly limitless potential rapidly becoming limitless disappointment. I wonder if her sponsors will allow her to take the time off that she seemingly needs to get herself back together and competitive. The Wie Warriors are pinning their hopes on her ONE decent round, and conveniently ignoring her three BAD rounds.

Listen, now that Pressel and Gulbis have won this year, Wie really stands alone as the Winless Wonder. At this point, one hopes she enters and wins a junior girls tournament, just to get a taste for actually finishing when it matters.

George,

Please don't expect Stanley to give a definitive reply to such a simple question. Now that Bubbles has the "injury" to rely on, Stanley has taken to equivocation as to when Bubbles will take off the horse collar.

Last year at this time, when Bubbles had several high finishes, he was certain that she would win her first in 2006, or 2007 at the latest.

Even about a month ago, he still thought she had a good chance of winning this year, but hedged somewhat to "early" 2008 for sure.

With his appraisal of Bubbles' Evian as a good sign, Stanley has cemented his position as the "Baghdad Bob" of women's golf predictors.

I personally don't see how she will even have any decent outings in the foreseeable future, much less win an LPGA event.

Two years ago, I saw her play about a dozen holes at the US Publinx.

Although she didn't come close to fulfilling any of the hype that preceded her, she did exhibit a fluid and graceful athletic swing.

Now she resembles a scythe-wielding Bulgarian mowing down a field of barley.

George: "In which year will Michelle Wie win her first LPGA tournament?"

George, I had predicted 2007, but since the wrist affected so much of the year that ruined that.
It is possible that she could be ready to win the Samsung for example, but pinning hopes on one event isn't the best idea.

So given the nature of the injury, the amount of time she was out of the game, and that even at the Evian she wasn't back to full strength and was still trying to build up her strength it is only fair to pospone that prediction to the 2008 season.

And by the way, that prediction stands whether or not she joins the lpga tour.

What 3 bad rounds do you speak of?
At least 2 of the rounds were good, those of +1 and -1, which had taken her to 26th place. The 4th round 76 was also steady enough. She had one very bad round, not 3 bad rounds as you claimed.
Basically she had one bad round, one okay round and two good rounds at the Evian Masters.
2007-07-30 @ 14:28
Comment from: Alex [Visitor] Email
Big Stan continues his scambling of semantics concerning the English language.

In Stanley's Newspeak, a four over par round on a course less than 6300 yards is not only "okay", it is "steady."

A tie for 69th out of 71 players is now an uplifting sign for the better.

Stay tuned for more pipedreams and equivocation by Stanley.

Alex,
Nobody denied that she had one bad round. That round accounted for +12 of her +16 score. Without that round she was +4 for 3 rounds, and yes that was progress.

I was not surprised that she had one particularly bad round at that event. Hopefully if she has a bad round at St. Andrews she will have learned to grind it out a bit better and not drop so many shots.
What she did in the 4th round at the Evian starting out with a double and grinding out a +4 round suggests that she did learn something and hopefully that is a good sign.

I think she will make another cut at the British Open & if she does, that will be a further sign of a game getting back on track again.
2007-07-30 @ 18:44
Comment from: Alex [Visitor] Email
Yes, Stanley, and if she doesn't make the cut it will be most probably that her "injury" has not healed sufficiently, or that her strength has not returned, etc.

Big Stan, are you sure you are not a charter member of the Fabian Society?

Comment from: Florida Mike [Visitor] Email
Ford, write so that I can settle our bet. As for Ms Wie, she played better than she has in a while. Her swing looked better and her game is improving. Still a long way to go. This will show if she has the toughness and perserverence to triumph.

ps. In watching the O'rielly show the other night I heard a blog term that fits Alex, Smails, toddcommish, booger, etc........... It is a TROLL! they add nothing intelligent to the discussion and delight in degrading young and defenseless people. Do us a favor and crawl back under whatever bridge you came from (or is it rock?)

Yes, Jim, and Bubbles also improved her position from dead last at the McDonald's to a sparkling T69th at the Evian out of a whopping 72 in the final field. That is also a great improvement.

Jim, if a tornado blew off the roof of your house, would you find solace in the fact that the sunlight coming in was a great improvement over your previosly dimmly lit living room?

Wie was not last at the lpga championship, she was last of those who made the cut. She beat about 60 players who missed the cut there.

Comment from: Tommy [Visitor] Email
Wow! How far are lofty expectations have fallen. From playing the PGA Tour, the Masters, Ryder Cup and potentially the greatest woman golfer ever...to beating 60 LPGA players who didn't make the cut, 69th out of 72 participants in an LPGA event, from 35 shots off the lead to 20 out as an improvement. That's some wrist injury!

So any predictions for the British Open then?

I predict that she will make the cut and finish about 35th to 55th, basically mid-table of the cut-makers. So she won't contend but she will have 4 decent rounds.

So how about Alex, JR, Tommy etc. any predictions from you guys?

Come on, make a prediction before the event.

What will become of MW, nobody really knows. However, she just lost her #1 ranking as "golfer who makes uninteresting, insignificant comments to the press". She has just been replaced by boy wonder Fujikawa.

Today on pgatour.com his interview is vintage ....(I know, he's only 16...heard that before ?).

Bubbles will Wd or MC, take your pick.

Why not cover all the bases, Alex?

WD, MC, make the cut or win... There, now that covers every possible angle.
oops, I missed one. Bamberger can cover the course and find something to report on Sunday night after it's all over, that will have her DQ'd.
That should take care of all eventualities
2007-08-01 @ 12:31
Comment from: Alex [Visitor] Email
No, putt-putt,

There is no possibilty of her winning and very little possibility of her making the cut.

On the other hand, a MC is quite possible, but not as likely as a WD.

You don't know much about odds and probabilities, do you?

I agree with Lance R. People like putt4par and me are menaces to society. We are fans of Michelle Wie. I guess that is not as great a crime as being Michelle Wie--but it is pretty bad.

Putt4par,

What is your prediction for Bubbles this week? Do you think she will make the cut? Do you think she will win or at least be in the top 20? I always love seeing the unrealistic predictions of die hard loyal Wie Wees.
2007-08-01 @ 17:33
Comment from: putt4par [Visitor] Email
Oh hell, little twig, I can make a prediction that is at least as astute as Alex prediction. Probably have much better odds of being correct.
I predict that she'll show up.
There, how's that?


2007-08-01 @ 19:07
Comment from: Lance R [Visitor] Email
Putt4par,

Well, that is an improvement over the last time I asked you a question and got no response at all. But your prediction indicates that you are not any more confident in her performance than the rest of us are. Otherwise, you may have more positive prediction for her than just "showing up."
2007-08-01 @ 21:01

No, it was just a comment on your asinine request.
How many times I have to say it til it finally gets past your neanderthal bone ridge.... I don't have a crystal ball and never make predictions. I leave that to sports writers, bloggers and idiots like you and the rest of the trolls.
Your last quiz was answered but of course you were as always, too thick to recognize an answer, any answer.
Now go back to your troll hollow under that little rock of yours.

Wow!!!! It appears that Wie-Wee will not finish last today. AND even more impressive, scoring something less than 80! Well, there's always tomorrow. 80-plus will be the story after tomorrow's round.
2007-08-02 @ 07:08
Comment from: Lance R [Visitor] Email
Yes John D.

She did well today shooting 72 and is in good position. But the dreaded fall apart round may be lurking around the corner. That precarious wrist of hers could fail at any time. We will see tomorrow. My predictioon about her missing the cut is in danger; but, I still have the reliable prediction about Putt4par and the padded cell (1 out of 2 is not bad).

Ocoha is looking good again with a starting round of 6-under 67. Hopefully she can hold this lead this time.

Comment from: Lance R [Visitor] Email
Hey Putt4par,

Looks like I was correct in my prediction. Bubbles has shot 80 and will likely miss the cut at +7. This is the same prediction that you critized myself and John D for earlier. You said that you will not make predictions because you have not balls, I understand that. However, you can not even do that well, all you can do is critize other's predictions. You are such a douche bag.
2007-08-03 @ 14:42

Correction,

should read "no balls" instead of "not balls" Puttforpar has "no balls" as he stated earlier. Just a clarification.
