Tim,
Michelle's fan base is stronger than ever. Don't worry about that.

Stanley, exactly that are you "fans" of? If she doesn't win soon she won't be the youngest to have ever won on the tour. She has already shown she is not even the longest hitter on te women's tour. She certainly isn't the most accurate, nor is she a fair putter. So what is it? Is it her good looks? yikes if that is so. Is it her intelligence? Like c'mon like is it like really? God knows how she got into Stanford...certainly not on an oral interview. So what is it about her that anyone would be a fan of? And what is it about her that a young girl or boy would look up to and say "I want to be like her"?. I don't get it and perhaps you could explain? Sure it was neat to see a 14 year old girl hit it over 250 down the fairway. But that day is gone, long ago. I just don't see why anyone would be a fan at this point. She is a spoiled brat, and you know what I blame her for that as much as her parents and her sponsors. She is a big girl now yet she doesn't act like it.

I agree with Stanley. Her fan base is huge and most will probably never even hear about these recent ...um...transgressions...at least not in much detail. She may never fully win back her fellow player's respect, but she can definitely make a come back...because of the fans...and the formidible PR machine she has behind her. She does need to win, but I think most feel she’s capable of that. IMHO, It’s just the desire that she might not have…I’m simply not convinced she...Michelle Wie...the girl...is as desperate to be a top golfer as others are for her to be one.

I am watching Michelle on The Golf Channel.
She's finished as I have stated before. Seeing her Robotic emotions convinces me even more that She's done. You can not be that way and play good golf at the same time.
You can play instinct sports with those non-Emotions, but not golf which requires the mind getting involved.

I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ON MICHELLE. I KNOW SHE WAS HURT LAST WEEK, JUST LOOKING AT HER SCORES COMING IN ONLINE I COULD TELL SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I WILL NEVER GIVE ON MICHELLE. AND WHEN THE DAY COMES WHEN SHE WINS THE GREEN JACKET AT AGUSTA, IF HER WRITSTS ARE TO SORE TO LIFT THE JACKET, I'LL GLADLY LIFE THAT GREEN JACKET AND PLACE IT ON HER SHOULDERS. I HAVE BEEN A FAN, I AM A FAN, AND I WILL ALWAYS BE A FAN OF MICHELLE WIE. GO GET 'EM MICHELLE, I'LL BE RIGHT HERE CHEERING FOR YOU ALL THE WAY!

The key is that Wie is bringing in the casual sports fans who would not be watching/caring about the LPGA. I for one have never watched/cared about the LPGA before Wie, and I would lose any interest in women's golf as soon as Wie is not playing. She in short is broadening the LPGA fan base. Other LPGA players may complain about the circus like atmosphere, only because all the attention is focused on Wie and not the LPGA and/or its other players. Sure, it is too much, but it is likely a growing pain for the LPGA, and the LPGA needs Wie playing well. Last year's LPGA championship tournament was incredibly exciting (even better than the PGA event of the week) and I doubt it will be as exciting without Wie in contention.

Like her or hate her you are all writing about her,talking about her, blogging about her, reading about her and watching her on The Golf Channel

Know any other 17 year old who commands such attention?

She's finished only on the day when nobody writes about her. Until then she is still golf's most exciting player and without her you would all have less to talk about.

Any other player doing what she did, rightly or wrongly, would have gone unnoticed and wouldn't have gotten all this grief.

Go Michelle !!

Good point Kathy... Using your logic of "no-such-thing-as-negative-plublicity", lets hope Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan start killing people 'cause there's no such thing as a bad role model right?

Kathy,

Bubbles is golf's most exciting player? Since when?

I saw her play at the Pulinx two years ago, and neither I or the others watching were excited.

When Jon said that Bubbles was definitely Hall of Fame material, I thought that would be the most ridiculous praise of Bubbles to ever be mouthed.

But your fawning adulation is right up there with Jon's.

It's beyond me how anyone could defend Bubbles at this point; it just bespeaks of a complete lack of integrity. After all, she withdraws from the Ginn, citing an aggravated wrist, and then is found practicing at the site of the LPGA the next day! To top it all off, after Sorenstam criticizes the outrageous behavior, the spoiled brat defiantly states that she has nothing for which to apologize.

You should also note that for something to rise to the level where it would inspire Sorenstam -- a very reserved individual, in typical Scandinavian style -- to level that kind of criticism, it has to be quite egregious indeed.

It has become obvious that Bubbles has had an EXTREMELY poor upbringing and is nothing but an arrogant, rotten spoiled brat with a feeling of entitlement. And those who defend her render themselves guilty by association.

We'll see...
If Michelle ever recovers 100%, she will do just fine.
