Wie Pulls Out of Casio World

Surprisingly, Michelle Wie made a decision which her critics will likely praise: not competing in another men's event for now. Wie, who has faced tremendous problems on and off the course in 2007, announced that she will not compete in the men's Casio World Open in Japan.

Wie has made the trip to the Far East for the last two season, getting closest to success in 2005 when she missed the cut by one stroke as a 16 year old.

Of course, she will probably be deprived of another big paycheck for now, as she did receive appearance fee payments of approximately $1,000,000 for each of her last two starts at the Casio.

Her declared last tournament of 2007 was in early October at the Samsung World Championship. Unfortunately, Wie fired rounds of 79-79-77-71 and finished 19th in a 20 player field.
