Big Break III's Barbie pulls out of the LPGA Corning Classic
It was Barbie?s last chance…
Danielle Amiee of the Big Break III was supposed to tee it up today in the LPGA Corning Classic, but pulled out at the last minute, with a bunch of blah blah blah about a bad back. That’s right. Her big prize for winning Big Break III was *two* LPGA exemptions. And she’s decided not to play. Not only that, but The Golf Channel gave her the option to spend time in the booth chatting with the announcers, and her response was to refuse to take their calls. She’s refused all interviews, in fact, live or taped. What a classy gal!
And I have to wonder about the timing of her announcement. Why wait till the last minute? Just to make sure Pam doesn’t get offered the bid in her place? I’m guessing Pam, Cindy, Liz, you name it, would’ve been happy to fill in. But this wasn’t Miss America, where the runner-up gets to finish the reign if “the winner for any reason cannot fulfill her duties.” It only seemed like it.
As of this writing, Sophie Gustafson is in the lead, at 6 under. Defending champion Annika Sorenstam (the most-repeated words in women’s golf) is T2 at 3 under. The Golf Channel is airing coverage of the Classic starting at 4 pm, and then replaying it each evening at 9.

1. Physically couldn't perform well.
2. Mentally overwhelmed and couldn't perform well. ...or
3. Stratigically opted out for another shot at a later time.
Which ever the case, it was a smart decision, as she only has one more opportunity to do well. Unlike others, she has one chance right now.
There is no next time... this was her second event.. If she wants to try at a 'later time' then she's gotta earn it the old fashioned way. No More Big Break for Danielle.
most selfish competitor, and graceless too. While surprised she pulled out of her Big break 2, not at all surprised she refused to answer questions. She does it her way. Too bad she can't sing. She and Old blue eyes would make a great pair.
But she still has a nice ass - that's what definitively saves her :)
