    I'm not an avid golf fan or anything, but there was recently a fairly prestigous tourney held in a nearby American city where this young lady played. I never heard of her until the local (Sault Ste. Marie) news started doing an article here and there about her.

    She sounds pretty impressive, especially for her age. Golf afficionados, any opinions?

    someone nicknamed her "the big wiesy" since her smooth effortless swing closely resembles ernie els' swing...

    she's only 13 and i think she placed 39th at the u.s. open...

    the key will be her emotional stability... could be a case of too much too soon a la capriati...

    Is this the 13 year old girl who can drive the ball 300 yards?

    That's like farther than most adult men.

    This girl is sick. 14 years old and hitting 300 yrd drives.
    As an FYI she is playing with the men this weekend and is tied for 103rd out of 144 golfers.
    She is only 1 stroke away from Ben Curtis (British Open Winner) and Stuart Appleby (last week's winner).

    Three Questions:
    1) Will she make the cut?
    2) How many guys will she beat?
    3) If you are a guy and get beat by her..should you automatically lose your tour card?


    HONOLULU (AP) -- Michelle Wie hardly looked out of place Thursday at the Sony Open. Give her time, and the 14-year-old might prove she belongs on the PGA Tour. Wie, believed to be the youngest player ever on the PGA Tour, made three birdies in a respectable round of 2-over 72 that left her nine strokes behind early leader Carlos Franco and in need of her best round to make the cut.

    Ernie Els said she reminds him of a young Tiger Woods.

    She has unbelievable talent. Probably one of the best golfers ever at that age. Male or female.
