This is wrong in so many ways.  Why, though, will I find myself routing for this girl?

same way we have been rooting the likes of Wie, Creamer and Pressler. which reminds me whether my email to the Post ME several weeks ago about the disparity in coverage of women golf had anything to do with the better coverage lately.

Isn't Wie a good reason NOT to keep letting these little girls into the pros? I don't think there is any doubt that she would have been better off playing at the lower levels first.

BTW, I am a fan of women's golf and wish they showed more of it.

Whats the youngest a person has ever been in a pro sport, this is now the youngest I can think of, originally it was Freddy Adu at 14, anyone know someone younger in a sport?

This is just wrong.  She's still a little girl!  I wish her well.  But this just doesn't seem like a prudent thing to do!
