Male Chauvinism

On WFNZ, on Prime Time with the Packman, callers love to dog Michelle Wie whenever she fails to make the cut in a men's tournament. "She has no business out there, look at the score she shot!" they say. Well, if the score she shot says she doesn't belong, take a look at some of the other names that missed the cut for the Sony Open: Matt Kuchar, Mark Calcavecchia, Fred Funk, Bill Haas, Stewart Cink, Tim Herron, Stuart Appelby, Billy Mayfair, Joe Oglvie, and Corey Pavin
. 74 golfers didn't make the cut. I guess none of those men listed have any business being allowed to play either. I will safely and confidently assume that Michelle Wie's 78-76 scores would beat the callers' scores if they were to tee it up at a PGA event. Hell, I'd let the callers play in a group and take best ball, and they wouldn't beat her. THAT's what gets them all riles up, being bested by a young woman.
