Cindy earned an exemption by winning the 2004 Golf For Women Magazine LPGA Teaching and Club Professional Championship...It had nothing to do with BB3.

The reason for the McDonald's LPGA Championship hosted by Coca-Cola on Buick Country Club's Kraft Mac 'n Cheese Extra Cheesey Course, sponsored by Oil of Olay, should be obvious. It's the same reason Michelle Wie does and should get exemptions to tournaments: the LPGA has a hard time selling it's product. Unlike The Masters, which can run it's program without commercials just to annoy Martha Burke, the LPGA does not have the cash to maintain a viable tour without lots of sponsorship and selling of naming rights.

Not that this is restricted to the LPGA. Just look at any major sports arena built in the last twenty years, or any of the College Bowl games. The FedEx Orange Bowl brought to you by General Motors, played at 3-Com Park on Cisco's Candlestick Point. It gets crazier every year.

I say give me more Michelle Wie and less seventeen name/sponsor tournaments.
