Annika Sorenstam three-peats; Michelle Wie proves herself
It?s been a whirlwind weekend. Annika swept the McDonald’s LPGA Championship, making her the first LPGA player ever to three-peat a major. She has declared that this year?s goal is the elusive Grand Slam. Now she?s halfway there, and she?s shown that she can pretty much dominate at will. Is the Grand Slam in any doubt?
Meanwhile, who was 2 (not T2, mind you. Just 2)? That would be Michelle Wie, the player many LPGA members didn’t think should be there in the first place. Now we see why?who would want to go up against her? She was the only one who came within sniffing distance of Annika, the only player on the field who broke par all four rounds, and she did it all with a bad stomach. Not until Sunday was she even feeling healthy.
And did I sense a Wie joke from the golf gods? Laura Davies, a supporter of Michelle?s presence on the field, ended up T3, meaning she got to take home an extra $36,000 of the $164,385 that Wie couldn?t accept since she?s an amateur. ?She belongs here,? said Davies. ?Anyone who doesn?t believe that has rocks in their head.?
Grace Park was one of those people with rocks in her head. She was a vocal opponent of Michelle?s invitation, and what happened to her? She withdrew with a bad back five holes shy of missing the cut, I mean, of completing the second round.
