This a link http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...080402088.html to an article Wie Still Living in Her Own Bubble - Refusal to Admit Repeated Mistakes is Holding Her Back.

I have a lot of respect for Mr. John Feinstein as both a journalist and an author of such books as Tales from Q School: Inside Golf's Fifth Major, Caddy for Life: The Bruce Edwards Story, The Majors: In Pursuit of Golf's Holy Grail and many more.

Agree with Mr. Feinstein or not, IMO it's a very interesting article.

First, let me say, that I celebrated Michelle’s meltdown in Reno by watching Lifetime – television for women. I know that I’ll take a couple of hits here – but it is America – and like Walt Whitman said, “What I assume, you shall assume.”
I not only agree with Feinstein – I am willing to take the misogynist perspective here. Who really cares about female athletes anyways? Even if that female athlete feels compelled to compete against men. I mean, how many self-respecting men out there just can’t wait for the start of the LPGA season? If we have the emotional stamina to ignore Wie she’ll simply go away… I promise. And if she really wants to compete against men – I suggest she pick up a weapon, stand a post, and fight the good fight for our country in Afghanistan. If Nike made a M-16 she probably would. You go girl… go away.

Wait, what year is it? Because, last time I checked, it wasn't 1856. Women have a vote now, you now... and they're also allowed to compete in sports, whether you care or not. I for one love watching womens golf, pretty much as much as I like to watch mens golf. Maybe you could learn something if you watched it too. God knows, most of the LPGA tour could whip 99.9% of the people on this website with 4 clubs.

Also, no matter how important you think you may be, Michelle Wie won't go away if you ignore her, because guess what, she doesn't give a rats behind about what you think! I think your last comment is possibly the stupidest one too... in fact I really don't know how to respond to it, so I won't.

Slightly to the side of the topic: I've read all Feinstein's golf books, and although the man is entertaining, he desperately needs an editor to rein him in. Too much repetition and obvious pasting together of stuff he's written elsewhere.

I hadn't heard about the Reno-Tahoe TD's cut-off of a legitimate line of questioning.

I know I didn't watch a second of the event only because the organizers prostituted themselves by inviting a circus to a golf tournament.

    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
    • Day 1: Starting over because I keep forgetting to post. More chipping/pitching COVID-19 drills with new wedges. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron. 
    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.
