The people have spoken: TravelGolf's fan base testifies on the topic of Wie
Three topics of late have generated more responses than anyone but Baldwin ever gets, so it’s high time that we at TG.Com recognize the power of the people. Regular viewers like UnderPar, Norman, triple R, jim COULTHARD deserve our thanks for contributing their opinions on a repeat basis. They certainly find the weak spots in our blog arguments, and support our frequent acertations. Here’s a chronology of the most recent discussions, to bring you up to speed.
It all started with What Michelle Wie does Well, and what we need to know, with 84 posts to date. RRR, John, Sheryl, Kevin and Norman got the ball rolling, then jim COULTHARD, Alan, and UnderPar really got hot under the collar. We started out comparing Wie, Creamer and Pressel, and honestly, each young lady has so much talent that 2006 will be simply extraordinary. Imagine the potential of Patty Berg, the Babe, and Joanne Carner coming out in one year to challenge the current ruler, Mickey Wright. That’s what this year is shaping up to be, in the vestiges of Creamer, Pressel and Wie versus Sorenstam.
We moved to a new topic when David Leadbetter (Lead to his friends, of which I am not one, sadly) commented that LPGA players “those girls” lack creativity “are one-dimensional.” What amazed me, 32 posts later, was that a lot of people agree with him. jay, jon and stone led the troops that supported Lead-B, while no one really provided support for the creativity of LPGA shotmakers. We then got sidetracked as UnderPar and others battled over whether it is physiologically impossible for girls and women to be as creative as boys and men. Cream-puff stuff.
Finally, yesterday’s post on the variety of Wie web watchers has already generated a solid 13 posts. John, Under Par, June, Alex and stone are at it again, with a new thread: comparing Wie’s PGA tour performances with those of Woods at the same age. Holy Bubbles, Batman, I hadn’t thought of that one!
So read our blogs, my people, and read what you and your brethren have to say in response. Blogs shaped the 2004 Presidential election season, and they have the power to do the same during the 2006 PGA, LPGA, Nationwide and Champions tour seasons. Power to the people!!!

It is strange how most of the threads, no matter what the start off topic, generate into an argument about whether women can play with men or indeed should be allowed to.
Whatever happens at the Sony, these comments are likely to continue, and peoples opinions are likely to stay just the same.
