Wie Struggles With Quad Bogey

Michelle Wie found major struggles yesterday at the Samsung World Championship on the LPGA Tour. Wie would falter to a 74 despite being near the top of the leaderboard on Thursday, hurt especially by a quadruple bogey 8 on a short 354 hole. The 14th would make us all remember that Wie is just a teenager trying to make her way on the adult tours. The hole would include two penalized drops as well as a whiff. The hole took a total of thirty minutes and severely backed up play. The question of should Michelle Wie be playing on the professional tours is for the most part irrelevant, at least for the LPGA Tour. Remember, Wie is 17 and is going out and generally being competitive for some time in the tournament in women's events. Wie commonly may be found in the top fifteen for some of the bigger events such as majors. Tos ay that Wie totally does not belong is for the most part ludicrous as very few young players even in their 20s will find their first victory in their second professional season. Even if Wie does not win an event, a total flop, Wie still will have a very similar effect Tiger has had on the game of golf in whole. Wie has brought more money into the game of LPGA golf as she brings in both Tiger-like crowds and Tiger-like ratings for events she enters. Friday's blowup would result in a 74, her worst score on the LPGA Tour this year. That 74 is still as good or better than other LPGA superstars such as Natalie Gulbis, Julie Inkster, and Se Ri Pak. Regardless of if Michelle Wie belongs in professional golf at the time, she certainly will have a positive affect on the sport itself.
