    Fifteen year old Michelle Wie may become the first woman in 60 years to make PGA tour cut...

    Kudos to her! :clap1:

    She choked on the back 9 yesterday, making a double bogey on 6 to finish 1 out.

    In my estimation she will not be good enough for the mens tour. Notice she plays the shorter courses, Hawaii the John Deere.......there is no way she will be able to compete on say an Augusta which is being lengthened again this year to almost 7400 or like a Torrey Pines which hosts the open in a few years which is almost 7600. Just not humanly possible for a woman. I think her best bet is to stick to the LPGA and then try and qualify for some of the select events like the open.

    6 foot 2 and drives 300 yards???---I think she's got a more than fair shot at making the cut in some courses on the tour.

    She hits about 1 a round. Hell your average pga player is smoking it 330 now, ON AVERAGE! She averaged 277.1 off the tee in the John Deere, you're talking the difference between a man hitting a wedge and her hitting a 5 iron, the law of averages will catch up sooner or later.

    I do think she is 5"11 at least. The fact of the matter is the guys are at times roping it 360+, no matter how good she becomes her physiality(heck is that a word? lol) will limit her. Doesn't look like equipment or the ball will be curtailed anytime soon.
