For some reason, the headline made me think that some charity tournament had a 15-year old boy destroying the LPGA players by multiple strokes

High school teachers have a monopoly on getting destroyed by 15 year old boys by multiple strokes.

She had the knee socks and pleated skirt schoolgirl look going last weekend, and I felt like a very bad boy who needed to spanked watching her.

I'm not golf genius, but isn't Michelle Wie playing with men a bigger accomplishment than Lydia Ko beating all of the women? Are women even close to as good as men, or is it like track where average high school boys are better than Olympic level women?

Wie qualifying for a mens event was something that hadn't happened in 50 years, so you are correct. Teenage Asians beating the women is pretty normal these days.

Did she actually qualify for men's events or did they just give her a pass and let her in. I hear people claiming both are true.

I was at the LPGA US Open, and for whatever reason, I would estimate at least half the field was Korean or one some sort of Asian.

/just an observation
//why is there such a higher percentage of pro Asian women in the LPGA, than Asian men in the PGA
///real question, I am not looking for some racist "fact"

Well, at least they're professional teenagers. This is an amateur. She just won the U.S. Women's Amateur a couple of weeks ago.

I'd say her playing with men has improved.
