Yeah, a born politician, but I wonder if anybody ever told her about Babe. I put it down to nerves.

When she says she would be doing something that nobody else ever did, obviously she meant "female" so we will forgive her for that slip.

As regards, Babe, Michelle is technically right, because when Babe made the cut, she missed the 3 day cut, and so didn't play the final round.

In Michelle's case there is no 3 day cut, so if she makes the cut, she would be playing the final day of a pga event, and be the first woman to do so.

Phew, some creative interpretation has helped in this case.

There is a chance Michelle Wie will win some tournament this year, but making a cut to play with the big boys im not so sure of. She appears to be a choker when she needs to make game saving shots. I think she'll be sticking with the LPGA for a while.

I beg to differ, Jennifer.

And you are wrong on this one, Mark. And Michelle already knew she wouldn't make everybody happy either way long time ago. Guess what? She was right. No matter what she said, there would be a crowd like you criticizing her move one way or other.

Actually Michelle Wie is right. Wie would be the first girl to make a PGA cut. Babe was a woman when she made her cut.

It seems like the same people who criticise Wie for saying she wanted to win the CASIO are now critising Wie for not speaking out in a way that could offend people.

Michelle did well avoiding a trap, and she did it in her own style. But there is another answer she could have given. "Right now I am not even thinking about anything beyond the Sony Open this month--so right now my answer would be making the Sony cut."

Do you get credit for 7 posts or 198 since your idea was hijacked by someone else on the site?

Michelle Wie has displayed incredible character and poise in the manner in which she answered Mark's question concerning the PGA and the LPGA. Whats astounding to me is that their still appears, to be those who would speak ill of her aggressive play yet humble attitude in the golf world. Her youth is a major player, she is an astounding golfer while maintaining that Aloha Spirit. So while many may take cheap shots at her, regarding her comments, let us not forget she is still a young girl who may make some errors. We however, should be fortunate to see such talents flourish around us. I have watched another young talent make his mark in the golfing community and though I grew up watching Jack, Lee, Arnold and Tom play amazing PGA tournaments, Tiger Woods has made a name for himself once again being humble and aggressive in play. Michelle will be an inspiration to many golfers, and we will be watching her grow and hopefully many of us will learn the artform of humility.

She will play LPGA next. But you are right about being Annika's caddy. If Annika does run into a situation where she needs her caddy's advice, she probably wants a caddy with more experience.

Leadbetter says she has not enough time to well play the LPGA, because of the school programs, but she has enough time to play (just play...) the PGA ?
I don't understand that...
