"It isn’t as if Oberholser’s first win came in a weak field. Four of the world’s current top-10 players fell by the wayside: Singh, Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, and Chris Dimarco. Mickelson in particular had a lousy day, finishing with a double bogey, four bogeys and a birdie, his worst score this year in a tournament. Is Lefty primed for a bad year?"

They should feel lucky they are not a sixteen year old with the first name of Michelle when they blew it along with Mike Weir. Their poor performances will be overlooked by the next event, while Miss Wie will continue to be vilified by some in forums, the media and by others on the peripheral of professional golf for a poor performance.

They won’t be asked to quit and stay home based on their lackluster performance or their sponsors’ decision to back them called into question by the press. No, even some of the best golfers in the world choke at one time or another and they simply put it behind them and rebound to play another day. That is the game of golf.

Did I miss something when I glanced over the conditions for posting on this website? Is there a rule that Michelle Wie must somehow be injected into every blog? Every subject somehow relates to Ms. Wie apparently. Back to my point, wasn't Oberholser the #1 ranked college golfer in the country for most of his Senior year. I believe he battled it out all that year with a Junior at Stanford by the name of Tiger Woods. Obviously there careers have gone in different directions, but can he really play the underdog card? After he wins three majors he can compare himself to Tom Brady. I'm a little sick of these guys playing the woe is me card when they all make a pretty handy living playing a game.

NOOO reading between the lines...it's black and white here. Oberholser does play the woe is me card and has been for a looooonnnng time. The networks know he is a loose canon with an extremely loose tongue (insults to Wie's parents, insults about Annika, and they have seen him off camera too...broken putters, slammed drivers, all of it). The networks want to promote the sport and Arron is a poor example of a gentleman. Ask the people in his life...bet they think twice about answering about all of the injuries and his newfound "inner peace." Bet they think twice about what a worthy guy he is. He's a farce and is handsomely being rewarded for it. Give him a few years, see him give back, and then I may change my mind. But until then, buck up dude!!! Grow up brother and be a man.
