Will Michelle Wie play?
Who'da thunk it? Michelle Wie was the "medalist" at the local qualifier. Conditions must have been brutal for even par to be the low round. Whatever and whomever shot it. The regional qualifier is the Monday after the LPGA McDonald's Championship. Don't recall whether Michelle placed highly enough last year to be invited back or was simply invited back on a sponsor's exemption. Either way, she was scheduled to be in the field. I'm betting that she opts out to prepare for the next rung of US Open qualifying.

I'm not so sure about that.... She came in second alone (3 strokes back) to Annika last year at McD's and may try to get the win this year. I understand she's trying to accomplish something on the PGA tour, but she has yet to "prove" herself on the LPGA tour. She can't rest on her laurels, as far as they're concerned, because she made the cut over in Korea and medaled at the men's qualifier. The LPGA is going to be her bread and butter before she gets anywhere on the PGA...I can't see her thumbing her nose at an event like this. Just my 2¢. :)

I saw the report that she intended to do both (play McD and the qualifier) after beginning the topic. Unfortunately, this system doesn't allow one to delete a thread/post. Anyhow, it's odd that folk think that one kid, who isn't even a member of the tour, has the power to make or break the LPGA. Dire predictions of loss of tournament sponsors, decreased purses, yada yada yada are just nuts IMHO. The kid is a true phenom, a huge draw, but her presence doesn't make or break an event -- simply makes it more profitable. If she were THAT big a deal, the LPGA would be soliciting her vs. expecting her to petition them to join so that she could appear in as many events as possible. As it is, the LPGA is sticking to its guns/policy regarding the number of events in which a non-member can participate and has repeatedly stated that her petition will be considered WHEN submitted. At 16, its a bit too early to predict what she will or won't accomplish on either tour. Personally, I'm getting really tired of the hype and could care less what she does, when, or where. I'm much more interested in following the LPGA tour and eagerly await the telecast and reports of each and every tournament. Right now, were MW to try to make a living on the Nationwide or PGA tours she can't do it -- especially as US tours don't allow payment of appearance money. If and when she makes a cut in a PGA/Nationwide event, the money for the bottom finishers isn't enough to support the golfing habit and certainly not enough to maintain a card. The speculation about how she will impact anything is way premature. She could get hurt and/or loose interest at any time. There are lots of men and women who were supposed to take the golf world by storm. Kelli Kehne will loose her card again this year and the Tryon kid isn't doing diddly on the foreign tours.
