    Didn't see this posted elsewhere. Will she and her family never learn?

    Will she remember to sign her scorecard?

    Is she going to want to sign her scorecard after shooting 90

    A win or high finish would have all but guaranteed her enough money to finish in the top 80 LPGA players this year, the cutoff for automatic inclusion in next year's tour.

    There's been speculation Wie would concentrate solely on women's competition, especially after last year when she injured both wrists and made only two cuts.

    Wie's chances of securing a 2009 LPGA Tour card now rest with her winning roughly $80,000 in her final tournament, which probably would take a top-three finish. Otherwise, she could be headed to the first of two stages of qualifying.

    "I think the qualifying conflicts with school, so I probably won't go to that," Wie said last month at the U.S. Women's Open in Minnesota. But that was when she had greater hopes of winning enough money to become exempt for next year.

    Her father made it sound as though Q-school was a distinct possibility at the time.

    "What other options do we have?" he said.


    What a mess.

    This is my baby. And while I don't mind the hounds being released, I have one favor to ask all of you from a professional standpoint.

    Due to my screwup, NOT ANYONE ELSE'S, the story Doug sent out has a wrong quote from Wie. When you guys use this story, I'd appreciate you dropping a PM and I will send you the right quote.

    AP has the revised release, but they're using the wrong quote.

    This is rather important to me and my client, so I'd appreciate this.

    I think with Tiger out, she'll do great.

    Well, if she can't get her LPGA Tour card, maybe she'll win Reno-Tahoe and get a PGA Tour card and that spot in the Masters she covets so much.

    Two gloves,

    You can't win if you don't make the cut. And I'm guessing that she won't come close to making the cut.

    The cut? I see an "injury" around the 11th hole after being 9 over

    I see the He-man woman-hating club is out in force here. I mean, where do you guys get off picking on this poor girl -- all she is trying to do is live out her dreams and be the best she can be.......
