I really don't have much to say on this topic that hasn't been covered in expert detail by all the other news sources but I wish she would add some credibility on her end by winning some LPGA tournaments. I know shehas come close but that only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

The next tournament she'll be playing in is the LPGA's 2nd major, McDonald's LPGA Championship, in Havre de Grace, MD (Bulle Rock GC) on June 8-11 which she finished in 2nd place the year before. It'll be interesting to also keep an eye on Morgan Pressel who I'm sure will self combust if she doesn't win.

I haven't played a full 18 holes for about 2 weeks but I did play 9 holes last Saturday. I've now decided that anything less than a regulation 18-hole round will be deemed practice by me. I hate it when I put my concentrated effort into it only having to leave after 9 holes and wanting more. This has helped ease my angst also for not having played 18 holes..no need to see a shrink.

Is it not true that Wie cannot go on the LPGA tour until she is 18?

Heard that somewhere....

Yes, they have an age limit..but you can get a waiver to play earlier. I believe one of the Song sisters (either Aree or Naree..forget) got an exemption to play earlier.

Right now she is limited to the number of LPGA events.
