Once again, Michelle Wie is getting the infamous "sponsor's exemption" to compete in the John Deere Classic. While I have no problem with Ms. Wie competing against the men; will this turn out to be yet another embarassing missed cut? One of these times, I believe she will make the cut in a PGA event. However what kind of progress is that? To say she made the cut. Ultimately, finishing 8-10 strokes back, maybe a little better? Who knows.
She and only she can decide her future in such events. But I believe she should play against and beat the best currently competing in the LPGA. And, she should (after she graduates) play in more LPGA events. But the key to her success will go through the LPGA. Then, and maybe then she could think about taking on the men.
