So Michelle Wie floundered on her final day at the women’s US Open. No surprise. It all comes back to her inability to win. She may be a great talent, but she has no ability to close out a golf tournament, and when the pressure is on, apparently she folds like a house of cards. One golf writer said Wie’s putter, “had all the finesse of a hammer.” Ugh. Sounds like her game looks prettier than it really is. Of course, Wie has her defenders, but this has surely grown tired. When she fails to get very far in the US Publinks next month, can we shut this media circus down for a little while? Please. Of course Annika Sorenstam didn’t have much better luck, though Canadian Lorie Kane surely had a fine final round, one of very few in red figures.
By the way, what’s with the name “Birdie” Kim anyway? Apparently there were too many Koreans with the same “Kim” surname on the LPGA, so she just changed her name to Birdie to compensate. A bit ostentatious if you ask me….
Tiger Woods is in town today. I’m taking Sydney, my 10 month old, on a drive up to get Strawberries, so maybe we’ll stop by Magna and see if the security guards unleash the hounds on us.
Apparently Technorati screwed up with a software fix and that’s why my blog looked funky for a little while. I’ve simply changed the format, which kind of appeals to me at the moment, though I might change that back in the near future. Apparently the problem is fixed. Damned third party applications.
