Wie likely to miss cut at Women's U.S. Open

  1. How is Michelle Wie ranked 10th in the world?

    Opening round 82 at Oakmont in the first round of the U.S. Open.

    Yet she's the 10th ranked player in the world?

    She has a 3rd, a 5th and a 6th this year. That'll move you up the rankings quickly.

    Hey, anything's possible. Irish Terry Conklin was ranked 10th before his before his fight with James "The Grim Reaper" Roper and never had a pro bout.

    A lot of highly rated golfers miss the cut at the U.S. Open, men's and women's, every year.
  5. Yep.... But with an opening round 82?
    I like Wie. I hope she does well and eventually wins on tour. I'm not a hater.
    I just never fathomed she would be on among the top 10 in the rankings.

    Michelle's actually had a renaissance in this last year. Whether she's just done some growing up, realized mistakes, gotten out from under the thumb of Daddy... it looks like she has a chance to become the golfer everyone thought she would.

    Heck, boxers stay in the rankings, even when they are dead.

    It's Oakmont. If not the toughest course in the country, it's in the top-five. There's a 250-yard par-3 for the women, for chrissakes.

    And a 600-yard-plus par-5. USGA set it up to where it said men vs. women, it's the same as the 2007 U.S. Open. Winning score was 5-over. Absolutely a brutally hard course.
