just one thing... MW did not open with or
close with a birdie. She played the back
9 first. She was 4 over after 7 and after back to back birdies (18 & 1), she
followed that up with 4 more bogies. She
was never in danger of shooting a 68.

Uh, Fujikawa succeeded at 16 where Bubbles failed at 14, 15, 16 AND 17, my liberal blogger.

Ron Mon,

Did you say that you wanted to be ob jective, to tell it like it is?

I don't think so.

In just this one blog, you give away your bias.

Bubbles' "injury" must be worse than anticipated.

And Tadd had a "fortunate" performance.

Alex,

The funny thing is that Tadd had a "fortunate" performance two days in a row. Bubbles hasn't been "fortunate" in about ten tries.

I agree with Alex... your praise of
Fujikawa does seem like a second hand
compliment.

Hey, Fujikawa is three under through ten and sits in eighth place. What a fortunate boy.

My, each of this fortunate boy's last two rounds has been better than Bubbles' all time best round at the Sony. I guess it really is true that it's better to be lucky than good.

Or, maybe it's that it's better to be good than hyped.

Fortunate? This kid had to actually QUALLIFY, in order to compete. THEN he goes out and kicks ass!!

Did you hear his interview? He said he is going to continue to play some amateur events...He did not mention he was planning to turn pro tomorrow, just because he did good (so far) in ONE event.

MW is the fortunate one to rake in the $ millions. Tadd is the real thing. While watching his exploits late in round two and then today's round three, I never felt so much excitement for the guy. No corporate hype. No private school mention. No thousands of dollars a day Leadbetter coaching. We all witnessed and felt the emotion of Tadd's accomplishments without the handlers' spin or the Wiesel's excuses. Go Tadd!

Yes, Halster, Fujikawa is someone for whom I can really root; I hope he wins the whole thing. It's nice to see a youngster competing without pretense; it's great when the skills exceed the hype, as opposed to the other way around.

Tommy--Humility, accomplishment and a geuine sense of pride are things which Michelle currently does not possess; all the money in the world won't change this.

nyc - i hold no favor for MW. just read some of my other posts on different blogs. i was just merely stating that i would rather be worth 30mil than be tadd fujikawa. that's all. it may be shallow but i am a realist (pessimist?).

I've missed you guys! Where were you as I was writing less-controversial blogs? Hope you had a nice Kwanzaa.

Now, on to the moment...could you not expand your respective pithy understandings of the adjective 'fortunate' to include hard work? Fujikawa is 'fortunate' that he has the guts and perseverance to go after and grind for what he wants. Wie is 'fortunate' that there have been so many suckers in the world (her parents included) that she can bankroll the next two or three generations of family on a smoke-and-mirrors performance. How's that for some truth in advertising?

I hardly think Michelle Wie's parants are suckers. They took the corporate morons looking for the next Tiger Woods to the cleaners big time. How's that for the truth !

The young lady from Hawaii keeps saying in her interviews that she is "learning alot" playing the PGA events. She is not making any progress.

Hey Guys...

Wrote on another blog and we need to consider the Big Three for the year; Wie, The Fed Ex Cup and The Win Zone...

Voting is open for the biggest croc of crap you don't want to hear anything else about the rest of the year...and it only January...

God Bless Tadd!!!

What the heck is the win zone? Is it from the golf channel? if so, being amish, i don't have cable, so we don't get the golf channel.

Ron Monster, if cable isn't available, you gotta get a dish, my man! Win Zone is some computer concoction from TGC that calculates up-to-the-moment percentages on a given golfer's chance of winning. Somewhat entertaining. Goydos didn't have a double-digit chance until he had a 1-shot lead playing the 18th ahead of Donald & Howell. But not having TGC means you missed the most fun story in quite a while: T-Fooj!

Hey, best quote of the week from Tadd: If I didn't work so hard on my putting, I wouldn't have made... Is everyone reading and retaining?
