When I saw the "highlights" of her on Sportscenter this morning, I somehow knew this thread was gonna be bumped to the top.

The wrist is BS, had she completed the round and shot 88 or worse, she would have been barred from LPGA tour events for a year.

Yep, complete joke. Wish more people would just call her out on it.

she's been out with the wrist injury since january. the LPGA championship tourney is next weekend. it wouldn't surprise me if she rushed back this week to get a tournament in to practice for the big one next week.

so i could see how she could have pushed it and reinjured the wrist a bit. also, if her wrist has been hurt since january, i don't see how you can really practice while its recovering, so thats probably what hurt her most of all.

She's definitely rusty, but even before the injury her tee shots had gone downhill. I think she needs to ditch her current swing coach (Leadbetter). She used to drive it a lot better.

2nd Women's Major of the Year...she practiced and she appeared...

LAST PLACE for Michelle Wie...35 shots from the leader....she was 10 shots behind the nearest player at #83...Maybe she should get a Miss Irrelevent Award.

From Wiki. - Wie cannot officially become a member of the LPGA Tour until her 18th birthday. Since she is not an LPGA member, she is limited to playing in no more than six LPGA events per year. However, as a professional, she is allowed to collect prize money.

With that said.

Following Wie's poor performance at the 2007 Sony Open in Hawaii, AP golf writer Doug Ferguson suggested that her nickname be changed from "the Big Wiesy" to a more appropriate moniker, "the Big Queasy."

I was optimistic when she made the cut on the line, but she really made a wreck of the weekend. I really hope she gets her game back. I like the new nickname - ha.

I wish someone would pay me $3,273 for playing 4 sucky rounds of golf over a long weekend. I can play like crap for $800 a round.

If the wrist is an issue, she should withdraw instead of risking her career for one tourney. Mickelson withdrew from two tourneys with his wrist problem, per his doctor's advice.

cant blame her for trying to fight through it to compete in a major. now that its obvious the wrist it still hurting her, it would be smart to shut it down until its fully healthy and she is able to practice enough to get back to where she used to be.

She's still planning to play in the women's US Open in two weeks, and with the higher rough it's anything but wrist-friendly. Hopefully she can get it back-she's also been having issues with driver. She said that she hit driver for the first time in 54 holes (and it went in the rough).

Perhaps much like Brooke Shields, her professional peak was at age 14-15.

She's a teenager who appears to let her father make many bad calls for her. Hopefully when she turns 18 she'll distance herself from him in a professional sense and get some advice elsewhere.
