Even as she has a disastrous round in Hawaii, it’s being reported that Michelle Wie will once again appear in Japan’s Casio World Open this fall.
I wonder if her handlers are doing this right. At what point does she stop being a novelty, and start being an object of derision. I admire her spunk, but she’s about to become golf’s Don Quioxte, tilting at windmills.
She needs to play and win a few women’s events. But that presents a problem, too. If she plays in a bunch and doesn’t manage to win, then all of the mystique is gone.
