I put the whammy on her. Double. Sor-ry.

Lewis

Wie

Creamer

 

:-D

 

Any of them could win and I'd be pleased as punch.

 

Disappointed slightly by Pettersen's play.

 

Ko needs to find a steady caddie.

Id love to see Wie win. I think if Wie Lewis and Creamer are all in contention on Sunday I think the ratings will be good which is great for the LPGA.

Only ten players at or better than par?   Lots of plus 9 scores and higher.  Did something happen to the course, like  6 inches of rain?   Maybe lots of divots in the fairway  and footprints in the waste from last week are hampering the ladies.

Why is Wie wearing the elastic therapeutic tape on her leg? I wonder if the men use them but we can't see. Her caddie or someones caddie was using it too.

It's a big boy course. The men struggled as well.

The ladies are having trouble holding the ball on the edges of the greens.

They're designed to pull the skin away from the muscle so that blood can flow better.

One minor detail (it doesn't change the point you're making): Michelle Wie did make one cut against the men: a T-35 at the 2006 SK Telecom Open.

I thought Ko was using Fluff (Jim Furyk's caddy) since he would have a better sense of the course having been there just last weekend.

Being a caddie would be pretty nice now that I think about it. I imagine it would let you lie a bit vicariously through your player, and hauling the bag wouldn't be bad if they let you use a double shoulder strap instead of just the single strap. You get to see all the nice courses, watch some of the world's best, and are rewarded if you do well and your player wins. Could be not so fun if your player missed a lot of cuts though and your paycheck suffered as a result.

She is, but they said she has a different caddie every week.

In that case, she really should find someone she likes. I'd go bonkers taking critical course advice from a different person in every tournament I played in.

There's a joke here to be made but I'll let someone else make it. f3_laugh.gif

Michelle finished birdie-birdie on the 8th/9th hole today to get to -4 (here's her card http://www.lpgascoring.com/public/Scorecard.aspx?TournamentID=27975&PlayerID=88106). Looking solid!

 

Michelle has studied the course this week (with thanks to friend Ricky Fowler and Keegan Bradley) according to this story--> http://www.golfchannel.com/news/golf-central-blog/wie-studies-her-way-first-round-68/

 

Could be her week if she knows the course better than her competitors and she's in her groove.
