michelle wie tiger woods Yawnnn… ZZZZZZZ. Oh, is this thing on?

As you may know, I’m golf blog boycotting a certain player who was formerly referred to as “the female Tiger Woods” (FTW). FTW seems to prefer getting her ass handed to her by the men of the PGA Tour rather than paying her dues on the LPGA.

Once again, I’ll mention her name and give her props when she wins something… anything… a game of tic-tac-toe perhaps.

Apparently everyone in her circle (except her very wise parents) were strongly recommending she not play this week. Her coach, her management firm and even her pet parakeet were against it.

FTW’s coach David Leadbetter

“There’s far too much negative energy surrounding Michelle right now. She’s getting slated by everyone. She is going to be like a pariah if she is not careful. This is the wrong decision.”

At least FTW clearly and concisely explained her position on playing against the men. Please read this paragraph a minimum of FIVE times. It gets better each time.

“I think a decision is a decision whether it’s a wrong decision or a right decision. It’s a decision that I made and, you know, I’m not going to pull out. I’m not going to second-think my decision. I’ve already made my decision to play here and I shot a pretty decent round today. I’m not going to think about what people are going to think about me and other things that I can’t control.”

Someone has obviously been working with FTW on her English. She didn’t say “like” in that entire paragraph! Perhaps I need decide to make a decision and think about what I’m going to think about to “second-think” my decided decision opinions on FTW…. like.

Age not a factor on the LPGA or PGA Tours this week

Man what an interesting week in the world of professional golf. Tiger is out and I’m sure the networks and golf publications are gasping for oxygen.

Too young? Nope!

Inbee Park won the Women’s U.S. Open at the age of 20, the youngest Open winner ever.

Too old? Nope!

Some other PGA Tour players may want to remind Kenny Perry how old he is (47). He isn’t supposed to be beating all the flat bellies out there but he and his super slow swing just won the Buick Open.

I see London I see France. I see Paula Creamer’s….

Paula Creamer Crotch Shot and NO it is not Paula Creamer nakedIs Paula Creamer wearing shorts in this picture or a skirt? Not sure this is a terribly good choice for Yahoo Sports to be displaying this picture of Paula in their RSS golf news feed. It’s quite “Ladies of Big Break crotch shot esque” of them.

Of course, being a golf blogger with very low standards, I have no problem posting it.

Annika back in the winner’s circle

I’m glad that Annika Sorenstam got herself back in the winner’s circle today. She defeated Paula Creamer on the first hole of a playoff at the Stanford International Pro-Am. That marks victory #71.

All due respect to Lorena Ochoa, Annika is still #1 in my book.
