Par for the Course

Is it time to get off Michelle Wie's back?

All the naysayers that have belittled Michelle Wie's approach to playing in men's tournaments just may need to zip it for awhile.
Wie led the Americans in total points with 3.5 while leading the USA to a 16-12 victory over Europe in this weekend's Solheim Cup, including an early 1-up victory over Helen Alfredsson during Sunday's singles. It was the third straight Cup win for the U.S. and eighth overall.
There is no doubt that Wie can play and, in my humble opinion, will make the cut at a PGA event within the next three years if she keeps teeing it up with the big boys.
