U.S. Golf Association Tries to Play Through the Rough: "Michelle Wie became the first female player to qualify for an adult male U.S. Golf Association championship Tuesday, tying for first place in a 36-hole U.S. Amateur Public Links sectional qualifying tournament.
The 15-year-old star from Hawaii, second Sunday in the LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock in Maryland, matched Artie Fink Jr. of Altoona at 1-over 145 on the Cedarbrook Golf Course. Wie opened with a 1-under 71 and shot a 74 in the rain-delayed second round.
The Public Links winner has traditionally received a spot in the Masters."
A personal note: I have been posting less recently as 1) I have been very busy with a number of business and personal issues the last couple of weeks all of which are good things, and 2) perhaps its just summer vacation time but so many things particularly national politics and the stock market seem to stuck on hold for now, I hope more is going on behind the scenes than I am seeing.
