Wie Melting Down

Poor Michelle Wie. She's getting tagged by injury and her swing is melting down. She's quickly getting lumped into an elite group of overhyped non-winners that include Anna Kournikova and well, Anna Kournikova. She was within two bogeys of getting removed from the LPGA for the remainder of the year. Even Annika Sorenstam blasted her:

“I just feel that there’s a little bit of lack of respect and class just to leave a tournament like that and then come out and practice here... It’s a little funny that you pull out with an injury and then you start grinding. My doctor told me to rest.”

Annika was referring to Michelle's return to the driving range less than a week after her withdrawel.

Criticism of her 'handling' is now becoming near universal. She is routinely invited to lesser mens' event and she is routinely failing. She still has yet to win an LPGA event. Last year she threatened to become the youngest LPGA winner, ever, and this year she's flirting with getting kicked off the tour.

Now, Michelle's future is still bright. Make no mistake about it, any girl with her swing and 300 yard bombs has a future in golf, but unfortunately her family is too busy cashing in to get her the obvious development she needs.

Its amazing how much motivation drops when you stop dangling the carrott in front of the donkey.
