Michelle Wie arrived at the US Women’s Open this week in the midst of her deepest career crisis to date (that’s saying something; there have been a few), but having carded a near-flawless 66 on Friday, she begins this afternoon’s penultimate round in the hope, if not quite expectation, of ending her wait for a major championship breakthrough.

Tiger and the PGA Tour are at Pebble Beach this week, but if you want to see a genuinely world-class field tackle an innovative piece of golf architecture, the Australian sandbelt, home of Royal Melbourne and the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open, probably has the edge over Monterey.

Congrats to the European squad for their impressive victory over the Americans at the Solheim Cup.
It was looking like the Americans were going to pull off an unlikely victory about a half-hour earlier. Europe and U.S. were tied at 12 1/2 points apiece.

After Suzann Pettersen’s 15-footer for birdie disappeared in the cup on the 18th green at Hamilton Farm in Gladstone, New Jersey, she dropped her putter and threw her arms in the air in celebration. Finally.
In an intense match, Pettersen beat Cristie Kerr 1-up to capture the Sybase Match Play Championship, putting an end to her 20-month winless streak. For someone who finished runner-up six times last season, it felt like much longer. (continue reading…)
