Always Be Covering: Especially When You Have to Re-Up
Wilson Chandler To Stay Past 2010

After what seemed like years of meltdowns and unfulfilled expectations, Michelle Wie is finally kind of kicking ass.  Two days into the 90-hole “caldron” of Q school, Wie is tied for the lead at 10-under after a second day in which she shot a bogey-free 7-under 65.

By the way, I put “caldron” in quotes because that’s what the USA Today article actually calls it (and also because I would use the more correct spelling cauldron).  A bunch of women are walking around beautifully manicured lawns, occasionally hitting tiny balls with clubs while people speak in hushed tones, and that’s somehow a cauldron.  It’s right up there with the pressure cooker of cruise-line shuffleboard and the unforgiving crucible of lying in a hammock.

Anyway, good for Michelle.  I’m glad she’s doing well because I didn’t even know that “Q school” was a qualifying event for the LPGA until she entered it.  Everybody was talking about Q school this, Q school that, but nobody said that the Q was for qualifying.  It’s like, Jesus, this is women’s golf.  Don’t assume I know what you’re talking about.
