It was almost enough to knock Michelle Wie's missing the cut out of the news...almost...ah well. Hopefully Annika or Paula can be a bonafide No. 2 for the Ocho.

"I just feel really rusty," she said after making a birdie on the final hole to finish even on the day. "I feel like I just need to play more. ... I feel like I can get it back."

Hmmm, does that sound familar?

Golf announcers on both the Golf Channel and ESPN just can't seem to resist the temptation to comment about Bubbles, no matter how lackluster her play. Some of the commentary borders on the surreal, and much is outright prevarication.

Yesterday, one announcer said that Bubbles was so severely injured last year that she shouldn't have played at all. He went on further that she was recovering from wrist surgery.

Another genius offered that Bubbles was merely a part time golfer while being a full time student at Stanford. He then corrected himself by saying that Bubbles was taking some time off from school, not that she had in fact dropped out of Stanford.

Judy Rankin said that Bubbles needs to play more competitive golf, but never mentioned how this would happen. Judy didn't say that Bubbles carefully avoided "Q" school or that she should get in some additional play on the Duramed tour or the LET.

What doesn't seem to occur to these so-called experts is that except for a brief period two years ago, Bubbles has never accomplished anything of note. They can't bring themselves to the realization that Bubbles just isn't as good as they would like her to be, that she is just another ordinary young golfer with a little bit of promise. In fact, several young golfers have left her in the dust.

Hopefully, before the year is out, we will be treated to a Sorenstam/Ochoa duel on Sunday in a major championship when they are both hitting on all cylinders. That would be something special.

Shanks,

Since it would still be women's golf, it would be about as exciting as a Fischer-Spassky chess match.

Alex - for a hater of the woman's pro tour, you sure do watch a lot of it. (I presume that to be the case because you don't strike me as someone who would complain about something he did not see.)

Annika had a pretty darn good day, it looks like. Kudos and congrats!

I DID check the leaderboard...looked in vain for Ms Wie...then found her name in the 'missed the cut' section. She sure doesn't appear to be making much of her "time off" from college.
