PARKER, Colo. – Michelle Wie was widely criticized Saturday at the Solheim Cup after she left the 16th green and bolted toward the 17th tee before opponents Caroline Masson and Caroline Hedwall cleaned up a putt to halve the 16th hole in their afternoon fourball match.
Wie, who was partnered with Jessica Korda, took to Twitter Sunday to apologize for her actions, and wanted to make it known that Korda did not leave the green early.

I saw this happened a few times during the Barclay's open in Singapore not too long ago. Is it a norm? Thought it was kinda rude

It happens to some of our kakis too. And yes, it is rude to walk off before your kakis finish their putts..

I saw it happen lots in the tournament where Yang beat TW. I recall that TW was criticized for heading off several times before Yang had finished his hole. But I guess Yang had the last laugh, just like Team Europe here.

Playing among friends, we have this rule; the first person to hole out take charge of the flag. The person whose ball is nearest the pin shall attend to the flag, unless he is the last person to get on the green. Should this happen the golfer whose ball is second nearest the pin shall attend to the flag. These are unwritten rule in our social game. Not sure if brothers here share the same view.Cool

I always see golfers I'm NSRCC who r like that

The first person who putt out does. Not put back the pin. He leaves for buggy 

The second person who putt out also does the same thing

The third person also does the same thing!!

Poor 4th golfer has to put the pin back after putting out

And it happens on many holes

sometimes to speed up play for social game the buggy that putt out first will go to the next tee box ready to tee off. This save some time especially when your flight is slow due to unforeseen circumstances like looking for balls or some one take too many strokes out of trouble. This I think is considered good especially for the flight behind.

Its all dependg on the agreement w the flight mates. Smile 
Usually the last third player ll will hold the pin fr the last mate to putt out. Wink
Yes, it was to speed up the local game. (esp: MBGC) Cool

The worst kind is those who 1st to putt from 40 feet.. Consecutively continue his 2nd putt then 3rd putt then ..


Becomes 1st to putt out .. Walk away like as if he owns the course

I thought she bends 90 degrees now? I stopped watching her when she putts as somehow I will feel my back aches.

With the way she is playing , I understand why she has the habit of leaving the green immediately after she is done...

Does Wie disrespect the game?



  • By Golf Channel Digital


  • Aug 20, 2013 1:18 PM ETDuring Tuesday's "Morning Drive" Game Ball segment, co-host Kelly Tilghman and instructor Billy Harmon disagreed on the merits of Michelle Wie. They offered their opinion on whether or not Wie's career, to this point, is a success or failure and if she lacks respect for the game.

Feel absolutely horrible about running off the green on 16. Got caught up in the moment and was so tired that I forgot what was happening.

I think she is one of the most gracious among the US team. She praised Europe for playing great all weeks during the after match interview. I dont hear this from other US players except from Wie and her capt.

leaving greens early in matchplay (or other little etiquette breach here and there) could be intentional, MF tactic to piss the opponent off..those guys really do gamesmanship.
