The Mess At The Samsung

The Canadian Press has a good column on the mess the LPGA has created for itself with the Samsung World Championship. Thanks in part to a special exemption given to Michelle Wie, the tournament will be short Annika Sorenstam and Natalie Gulbis.

And that’s just wrong.

  1. Uggg.  For every good thing you can say about the LPGA, which is just about everything you can say about 90% of the players—it gets overshadowed by the idiocy in the LPGA management.  Why in the world, is someone granted an exemption six months prior to a tourney?  That is just stupid, stupid, stupid. 

    If you have only 20 golfers in your deal, there will always be 10-15 that just about any of us could probably justify in that exemption spot before it goes to Wie- in fact, there are probably 60 other ladies who have a better shot than Wie. 

    The one big problem with the article is that there is given even a side thought that Team Wie might do the right thing by dropping the exemption.  HA!

  2. Good thing there is no cut.  Michelle finished yesterday at #20 of 20, 3 strokes worse than 19.  Now she is 19th, but 10 strokes from being tied for 17th and 18 strokes out of first.

  3. And Michelle finishes #20 today as well, at least 22 strokes from #1. 

    But on the good side, the LPGA ladies do show why they are more entertaining for the weekend, as with 4 holes to go, Lorena Ochoa, Paula Creamer, and Angela Park are tied for 1st.  Two players are 1 stroke back tied at 4th.  and a lot of players are within striking distance still.  Looks like in addition to the Kent State/OSU game tomorrow, my DVR will be filling up with LPGA for the weekend.
