Wie Has A Bad Memory
By Kickntrue on 2/2/10
Michelle Wie cannot remember 2007... like the whole year. I mean... I have a couple friends from college who could probably claim the same thing about some of their college years, but this is a little ridiculous as a "media strategy" by Wie.
Michelle Wie said she doesn't remember anything about her withdrawal from the Ginn Tournament in 2007 or other events during that injury-plagued year, according to an interview in the March issue of Golf Magazine.I thought Wie had turned the corner on this crap but she's clearly still getting bad advice from somewhere within her camp. I guess there is an outside chance she really has repressed a whole year, but if so- shouldn't child protective services be all over this (since she was 16 or 17 at the time) and get her some counseling?
I wish she would just step up, accept that mistakes were made, and then move on to winning golf tournaments and being the player the LPGA needs her to be. Does she think she won't be forgiven? She was just a kid- and most every golf fan blames her parents and not her, anyway.

We're gonna forgive Tiger, we can certainly forgive her. She was young and likely under pressure from her parents who were the ones calling the shots for her (at that time). I hope she can just move forward and be the player she has the potential to be. She needs a good publicist and PR agent to help her with her image off the course and then just go play golf to the best of her ability. She's got a great game. Her presence near the top of the leaderboard will be a great thing for the LPGA tour and woman's golf in general. Continued on next post....
.....As a side note, watching the LPGA on TV is very appealing to me. In addition to the fact that much of the field is nice to look at, they also play some great golf, especially around the green. Frankly, as amatuers, most of us can learn quite a bit more by emulating these talented women, rather than the PGA Tour pros who are so far advanced, a lot of what they do is beyond our limited ability. Certainly, you can pick things up from both groups, but face it, unless you are one of the few who fall into the "scratch" group, the rest of us would more closely relate to a lady pro's game, even on our best day.
Good luck to Michelle and all the LPGA pros! I'll be watching and learning from you all season.
Doug... I agree with you and plus I think the MEDIA GOES OVERBOARD ON SOME OF THE STUFF THEY ASK THESE PLAYERS... JUST BECAUSE YOU PLAY SPORTS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO BE PERFECT....MEDIA NEED TO LOOK AT THERE UNPERFECT LIFE'S SOMETIME....
I fully agree. I think the author is reading too much into her responses. It was a meaningless event in 2007, and we could care less about it now. Leave it to the media to make a spectacle out of everything. And I fully agree about watching the LPGA. Can't wait- two tournaments in NJ this year and I'm going to both of them. Went to the Barclays last year and it was a madhouse. LPGA should be much easier to watch on so many levels.
I find the pandering to this young woman to be beneath the dignity of the LPGA. To say that she has brought anything other than ridicule would be untrue. In the 3 0r 4 or whatever years she;s been hyped, there have been very few positives. She sounds like a moron when she speaks-"like -yeah-Oh like-wow!"
Let her clubs do the talking and until she has a record of accomplishments-I can do without more interviews-"like-got it-like?
I realise that the LPGA is desparate for some kind of interest since they have become the Korean-American golf tour, but Michele aint the answer.
tis better to forget than to misremember
The inability to forget is infinitely more devastating than the inability to remember. If I had a year like she did in 2007, I'd like to forget it too.
