very strongly that Michelle should not be hung out to dry over this. Those
who do not know golf very easily get the wrong end of the stick when they
hear that a player has been disqualified. What Michelle did was not
intentional and not a serious breach of the rules"
Garnt Moir, R & A assistant secretary of rules regarding Michelle
Wie's DQ at the Samsung World Championship. (Golf World October 28,2005)
While we agree that Michelle Wie should not be hung out to dry, and we
don't think that what she did was intentionally cheating at golf or life,
we've got to ask what you do for a serious breach of the rules. My God !
She was disqualified from the golf tournament ! That's a pretty serious
penalty for what is "..not a serious breach of the rules".
I am not sure but I think
the "business of golf" maybe influencing the way some people are
looking a Michelle. $$$$
Let's not forget she is a 16 year
old, with great courage, that wants to and will accomplish great things in
golf. Stop trying so hard to spin the ball. The truth is it was a serious
breach of the rules of golf, she was penalized in a serious manner by
being disqualified from the golf tournament, she took it both seriously and
graciously. She gave herself a crappy lie right off the tee sort of speak,
she can play it. Let it be.
