OK, I’ve heard enough talk about Tiger already. So the guy’s good, we know that. But he doesn’t deserve all the attention.

I couldn’t resist commenting about Michelle Wie’s press conference today in Europe, where she will play with the men this week. Not only does she want to play competitively against the men, she also hopes to make the Ryder Cup one day. Is she serious? She hasn’t even made a PGA cut yet, much less win the Women’s U.S. Amateur. What kind of street cred does she have in match play and team play competition? Zilch.

My response to comments. Thanks to everyone who has commented so far. I’m so glad we stopped talking about Tiger, I love the guy, but I think the media like to hype him way too much. I also wanted to respond to one suggestion that Michelle Wie was only being sarcastic. She wasn’t. Just listen to her comment, there’s not a trace of sarcasm in it:

“Hopefully, I will be able to play the Ryder Cup one day, that would be awesome and I think it is totally possible. Anything is possible in the future … we are starting to get stronger and work out more and are mentally tough and we can do it.”

I did agree with the one commenter that it would interesting to see Annika Sorenstam as a captain’s pick in the Ryder Cup. She would bring a lot of team competition experience with her.
