I'm puzzled. Please enlighten me.

I truly don't care about Michelle Wie or the controversy between her supporters and detractors but I did watch the Golf Channel's chintzy 2hr coverage of the Fields Open.

Annika shot a -6 to get within 4 of the lead.
Paula Creamer shot a -4 to get within 2.
Even Christina Kim shot 5 under par.

Wie shot an uninspired 1 over par for a 43rd place tie. The Golf Channel had more air time for her than all the others combined. Is her father the majority stock holder in The GC? The poor kid must have a painful rash on her cheeks from all the lip contact.

Watcher,

The Golf Channel has on several ad spots on at various times of the day.

They always start out with a blurb about Bubbles silencing her critics. At the close, they have a brief shot of 70 time winner Annika.

TGC does seem to have a vested interest in promoting the failing golf career of Bubbles.

Well, they will have to work real hard to make that happen.
Isn't this about where she was last year? Dead last?

Hate to tell you this, Michelle, but your game needs a lot more work.

TGC has continued to run a spot on the upcoming interview with Bubbles, the college student.

After her dismal performance at the Fields, one would think that they might revamp their programming. They even interviewed Bubbles after her 78 today which put her tied for last place. They seem to have hitched their wagon to the Wie star and will ride it to the bitter end.

TGC STILL gave Wie more interview time than any of the 71 golfers who beat her. Plus during Golf Central tonight and the "Big Relevant Interviews" during the next 3 nights. Who cares. Ryuji Imada is mens golf #79 and we don't hear much about him.

There's a big scoop out there for the reporter who figures out who's paying them off.

Anyone wondering how Stanford feels after watching Wie on her "Wie at School" special saying "I think that is the Library?". Holy crap, the circus just seems to keep getting crazier. The reality show she appears on should be called "Who Cares". I want TGC and the other broadcasters to start focusing on the LPGA and its members, of which Wie just may never become one of. Did you hear her talk about how she is "tournament rusty" and just needs to get out there and play more????? Where exactly is she going to do that? With her game she may not even get enough sponsors exemptions to meet her 6 tournament maximum. Now that would be the way to go.

Your "Five Reasons" aren't even right Jennifer - JJ shot her 64 in the FIRST round.

Nice catch, John. You're right--it was the first round.
