Michelle Wie announced -- actually, I think it was her father who made the announcement -- that she would play in the upcoming LPGA Q School Qualifier.  If she fails to make it to the finals in Florida, she'll have another chance the following week.The question here is, who cares?  How much longer do I have to keep reading about an under-achieving golfer who can't win against other women, but continues to play in men's events and miss the cut?  Can anyone argue that Michelle Wie is still relevant at all?  I say no.Let's face it, Wie had a great run.  Winning the Public Links and being in contention before and just after turning professional was a great story.  But injury, a bad attitude and poor planning by her parents have turned her into a non-factor in women's golf.What will it take to change my mind about the big-hitting Wie?  First, she needs to get through Q School and earn her card for the LPGA Tour.  Then, she needs to committ to playing a full tour schedule and not entering any men's events.  Finally,...

First, he sat down for an interview to promote his newest video game.  Did he have much to say?  Not really, plenty of yes and no questions and a little bit of humming.  Then, Tuesday, he announced through his website that he and his wife were expecting their second child.

Why bother bringing these two items to your attention.  It's just another example of the staying power Tiger has.  Analysts have been talking about life without Tiger for months now.  Even when other golfers are rising up and playing some great rounds, fans and the media are hooked on Tiger. 

Wait until the circus surrounding his return next year.

Golf Writer

In addition to owning Northwest Golf Adventures, I've been writing golf and travel articles since 2000. My main focus has always been golf in the Pacific Northwest, but I've had stories appear in association magazines across the country, several national publications and on radio and television. I'm always looking for great stories to write about!
