Read this a little bit ago and smiled...it would appear that the assessment of Michelle Wie that Bobo gave last year was...absolutely correct...

Michelle Wie goes back in for a little schoolin'
By Jay Busbee

Michelle Wie is only 18. I know this, you know this, and yet it's still a bit astonishing because she's already stirred up enough controversy for three lifetimes. People love her, people hate her, people want to hear more about her, people never want to hear from her again.

And yet, here's one thing we can all agree on: Going back to Q School is probably a very good thing for Michelle Wie right now.

Wie has run out of sponsor exemptions and didn't earn enough money on the LPGA Tour this year, and thus will take the humiliating-but-hopefully-ennobling step of going back to the basics. Ironically, her first tournament will be at the same course where she rose to fame just five short years ago, Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, Calif. It was there that she became the Next Big Thing, a 13-year-old kid able to play with the pros.

We've busted on Wie in this space before, and not without reason. But if she can get it together and rebuild her game and her confidence, minus the drama, she's still got enough time to put together a Hall of Fame career.

What Bobo said in June of last year...

quote:
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Comparing Tiger & Michelle WAaaaaa - I meant Wie, of course.

At her age, Tiger was preparing to win 3 straight U. S. Amateurs. Michelle has won what?? On the course, Tiger is a Killer. Wie??

Forget her "press." Watch her Game - Yes, she's long but very inconsistent off the tee. Her Iron Game is average. Her short game is non-existent and the girl cannot putt! The yips at 17?? They don't go away................I know.

I also think that Leadbetter is a very poor choice for a "Coach." Someone with the personality of Butch Harmon, if not Harmon himself, would be a better choice.

Potential?? My father once told me that potential was "French" for, "You haven't done SH!T yet."

She may turn out to be the next big thing. I don't think so.


This just made me smile because I remember how fired up he used to get about Michelle Waaaaaaaaa....

that post of his was in reply to mine.

I had mentioned that Wie had a smooth, full swing and was destined to become a really good golfer.

In his true classy, gentlemanly way, he offered his differing and I might add, prophetically correct reply. The guy actually DISCUSSED issues and everything was above the belt.

pure class.

I would count Michelle Wie as the luckiest person to ever set foot on a golf course. She signed a $10,000,000 sponsorship deal with Nike, despite the fact that she had never won anything.

She's still never won a 54 or 72 hole stroke play event at any level.

It's all about sales. At least Tiger EARNED his endorsement deals.

Bobo personified class.
