Michelle Wie

Michelle Wie is currently at -4 for the tournament and has a good shot at making the cut. I have to say that is pretty remarkable. This is a 15 year old girl going against all of these male pros.

15 years old! It's amazing. I hope she keeps it up.

Let me know when she wins something on the LPGA.....

Oh wait, she thinks she belongs on the PGA.

Her goal is to play in the most competitive league for her sport. I think that's commendable.

Her goal may be to play with the most competitive league though, but I still think she should have to win SOMETHING at a lower level (the LPGA) first though.

People are going to be asking "If she can't prove herself in the LPGA, what the hell is she doing in the PGA?"

If she is able to qualify for the PGA tour through the same process as any other male, why would it be necessary for her to go to the LPGA first?

That's like saying "If a 15-year old can get through an NHL tryout and make the team, why should he have to play Junior?"

One word: development.

There are loads of young baseball AAA players, or 18-year old AHL players who are more than capable of playing in the MLB or NHL. But the reason they don't is so that they can develop more consistently, rather than being thrust headlong into the most competitive league possible.

this tournament is a part of her development. she is seeing where she stacks up against the men to determine what her future plan of action should be

and for her to have a great shot to make the cut, I'd say she has stacked up very well

how can you not say a 15 year old girl making the cut at a PGA tournament is an amazing feat?

I'd say she stacks up quite well, if ya know what I mean.



Okay, I take that back. I'm not ready to go to jail.

She's what I call an "eventual fox".

Give it time.

Development is all nice and good but there have been examples of players going straight into the professional leagues while skipping the "developmetal" leagues and doing just fine. Also development doesn't always have to revolve around the "minor leagues."

One could say, that if Michelle really wanted to develop as a player, a more competitive environment (PGA) would be conducive to a better overall game rather than being bogged down by the competition in the LPGA which is different from the PGA (or at worst inferior).

Just as Tiger Woods was a boon to pro golf, if Wie is able to succeed in the PGA, THAT would be huge. I would like to see it happen.

Yes. I agree. Relative to the other LPGA golfers.... HOT albeit underaged!
