A Great Day for GolfOnly One shot away!
Michelle Wie, a 14-year-old ninth grader from Honolulu, missed the cut by only one stroke at the Sony Open in Hawaii, but that could hardly be viewed as falling short. It was the thrill of a young lifetime, a remarkable two days of golf and a showcase for the most-talked about amateur player since Tiger Woods. Wished I would have seen this - had to be great fun to be there and watch this. Now, it's back to the 9th grade for her. Her performance has to boggle the other professional's minds. Cranking out 300+ yard drives - whew. I'd be lucky to hit one 200 probably, but then I'm an ol' geezer, not a 14 year old with long legs and a beautiful swing. This will be a lady to watch!
