To all golfers.....and just sports fans in general.......what are your thoughts on Michelle Wie golfing on the PGA Tour..........I know she is popular.....(I'll still take Natalie Gulbis).......but she hasn't even won on the LPGA..........I know it is offending some of the LPGA ladies........my feelings are that she should stick to the LPGA until she proves herself........then possibly make the step!!!!!!!!!!

she was never in high pressure situations on the LPGA how is she going to do when she faces highly competitive men? i doubt she will get close. talk is she is working on her drive and she needs to since she will have longer to drive....stick to the womens and get your money there and wait till your 20 or more you have PLENTY of time to prove yourself, finish school first

I don't have a problem with a women playing on the mens tour for the competition. The fact the Wie has not even won is LPGA event and is playing with the men is a joke. What will happen is she will make the cut once and everyone will make a big deal out of it. Heck if Annika played the mens tour that often I'm sure whe would make a cut here and there. Annika is the only womens player right now that has the right to play with the men if she wants. She has dominated the womens tour for years now.

I don't have a problem with her playing with the big boys. The same sponsers that are shelling out the bucks for the Tour players are the ones inviting her to play in their events. If she brings in more money for the sponsers you'd better get used to her continuing to get invitations.

I saw her play at Shaker Run last July and chances are good that I wouldn't have gone if she wasn't going to be there. Plenty of other people there felt the same way.
