A DQ to close the Wie week

As detailed in this AP story (and mulligan’s post just before this one), an eventful first weekend as a pro for Michelle Wie ended with a disqualification for a bad drop during her third round. I was planing to use this post to talk about how impressive it was for Wie, with the whole world watching, to finish in the top 5 in her first pro tourney. But instead I guess I will just wonder if a 16-year-old girl worth $10 million is disappointed to have to forego a tourney check for more than $50,000 because of her DQ.

In related news, I think this weekend’s LPGA leaderboard reinforces my prior comments about the developing American Big 5 in ladies golf. In addition to Wie’s strong showing, Paula Creamer finished second and Natalie Gulbis and Christie Kerr also cashed big checks. And, as this story details, Morgan Pressel is on track for joining this group next year.
