ISSUE: Due to rules and scheduling of the LPGA, 15-year-old Alexis Thompson—who turned professional this year—lost her exemption from qualifying for the British Open. Five years prior, Michelle Wie—who was also 15 at the time—received a special exemption from qualifying for the same tournament.
WHITEY FORD SAYS: So, just because Wie (a.k.a the Nike-manufactured Asian hype machine) ended up being a bust, this truly All-American talent is denied the right to play in the British Open? It's like my daughter's rejected application to Stanford all over again.
DARK MAN X SAYS: Uh, read the article. Makes sense to me.
COMPLEX SAYS: Michelle Wie was born in what, '89? How old is that? OLD ENOUGH.
