OK, I have no idea what really happened because I didn’t see it.

Michelle Wie has withdrawn from the Ginn Tribute after playing 16 holes. She must have heard that blaming a wrist is the new “hip” thing (See Phil’s WD today from the Memorial).

He’s the 2nd ranked junior in the nation, and he’s turning pro in his next professional event. You may not have heard of Richard Lee, but GolfWeek has a story on him. I don’t care how good this kid is, 16 years old is way too young to be turning pro.

Rory Sabbatini, voted the least favorite to play with on tour by his peers, won the Colonial — er, the Crowne Plaza Invitational — this weekend.
