Wie is Enough

Even though Michelle Wie didn't play as well as people would have liked at the Sony Open last week, I think she's a legit future golf star. She's already shown that she has the game to compete at the highest levels of golf.

She just has to toughen up and stop crying after she plays below her expectations. Granted, she's only 15-years-old, but she needs that mental and emotional toughness to win in golf. It'll be interesting to follow her development, but if I hear or read another "cute" pun of her last name, I'm gonna go ballistic.

Here's just a small sampling of the headlines that I'm talking about: These guys are a barrel of laughs, aren't they? This stuff is digestable for the first couple of times, but this has been going on for over a year now. It's as overplayed as "shizzle my nizzle." It's like these writers just click on the "search and replace" function in their word processor and replace any hard "e" sound with "Wie." It may get so bad that wie'll all be doing this when wie write. Wiediculous, just like this golf blog.

Using "Big Wiesy" is so 2004, not to many using that this year. Thank Goodness.

She sure gives people alot to talk about that's for sure. Especially on most golf boards/forums.

UnbeWIEvable amount of comments. :D

Right up there with Tiger.

One more thing there are guys that cry, or darn close to it, when they lose a tourney or miss a cut. I have seen them. And some cry when they when.

WIEmotions are a good thing.

Out of curiousity, what was the last event she entered that she won and who was her competition. Or does that not matter when the old marketing machine is really all that needs to run...

Well, it's very likely that Wie will be a huge marketing draw. However, I doubt golf companies will pay big money. I doubt she will have much influence on golf equipment buying patterns.

Couldn't agree with you more about the pathetically lazy puns used by these guys. Remember when Nick Price was winning tournaments: how many predictable "Price is Right" type comments did you see???

Wie-kend off is a good one. That's funny. One hackneyed phrase that is far worse is adding -gate as a suffix to any sad excuse for a scandal. It doesn't wieven make sense.
