Michelle Wie just being a good capitalist
Whether you’re a Wie Wacko or a Wie Wannabe, you have to admit she has played the system perfectly to get to where she is – $10 million richer overnight. She hasn’t played it traditionally, just in a perfect, capitalistic way.
Would she be $10 richer today if she had followed the usual route up through the amateur ranks? I seriously doubt it. She’d be just another, teen, amateur phenom.
Look for my full column on this theme coming out Monday. You’ll find it amusing, insightful and informative, not at all like those crazed, obsesssive, mean blogs Chris Baldwin writes.

You sound like the column is already written .... but I'm guessing it will be changing, depending on how she gets on at the Samsung!
If Wie had spent any more time playing amateurs, she would have more trophies. And she would be nowhere near the golfer she is.
She is worth the millions precisely because she IS one of the world's top few women golfers. She has already beat up half the men players at PGA events. Twice. That is not hype. It is history.
Where is your capitalist story.
You've let us all down.
Wie will be devastated too.
He was polite. You could learn that Shanks.
Hard to be polite in the face of lunacy. At least it is for me. Sorry 'bout that.
In that case you better not look in the mirror.
Can't have it both ways Timmy...either Michelle is "scamming the system" or she isn't. I do have a clue...far more people with far more intelligence than you are betting real money on her talent. By the way...how much are they paying you for this drivel?
