You owe me a byline Ms. Mario or at least a footnote. :-)

I personally blame Shanks for jinxing or shanking her. Off with the .....

Annika is gone.
Creamer is the best player.

Whoo Ronnie, not so fast! Karrie Webb and Lorena Ochoa are certainly no slouches....

Annika might be thinking too much about the exaggerated media coverage and the very lucrative endorsement deals being given to a teenage non-winner. Golf is a funny game in that if you are not mentally into the game, the game will make you pay, big time, for your lack of 100% devotion.

I have a hunch, that unless there is a drastic change in the Wie situation, Annika will retire from professional golf after her commitments are finished for this year.

IMO, Annika, at this point in her career, is not going to be satisfied playing 2nd fiddle to any other female in professional golf.

Easy on the cream, Ronnie.

I suspect that rumours of Annika's passing have been greatly exagerated. Every pro has a slump now and then, Annika is actually several years over-due for one. I expect she will be back in stride later this year.

I also seriously doubt that Michelle Wie has any role whatsoever in Annika's current doldrums. If for no other reason than that they will only play together a limited number of times. The return of Karrie Webb is much more likely to grab Annika's attention.

But I really think Annika has had a little something slip in her physical condition...possibly something as small as needing an eye exam. She's about the age where the blinkers start going on the blink. A new perscription often does wonders for depth perception.

Come on folks be real. Annika misses a cut and her career is over, forcing her to flee from a sixteen year old.

Annika has fought through a bunch of personal issues over the last couple of years and she took out her frustrations on the rest of the LPGA. Look for her to rebound stronger than ever from this unfortunate event. There is no man or woman alive that works harder to perfect their game and she will correct what went wrong.

Seriously, Good Lord are people overplaying this! Golfers have ebbs and flows. Even Tiger doesn't win every tournament, and he had a more dominant stretch than Annika on their respective tours. When Tiger's made cut streak was broken (it has been broken, right?) he didn't retire, did he?

As for being afraid of Wie, come on! As for being angry that Wie is getting endorsements, maybe she is, so quitting is the answer to that? I am sure that will generate a lot of endorsement opportunities!

Ridiculous. Annika has a bad couple of days, on a course she has always struggled with. She is having a down year, working on some aspects of her swing. I think the sky is still blue and in one piece over her head, though.

Annika is not doing a "david duval"
perhaps her new love is side tracking her focus. She is too great a talent to think for even a moment that this
minor set back is of any relevance in her quest for 89 wins.
You go girl.

Who is Annika's new love? I must be too busy playing golf to keep up with the social news.
