Wie likely learned a $53,126 lesson

first_imgIt’s not always easy being 16 and famous, no matter how easy everyone tries to make it for you. Michelle Wie was surrounded all week by a protective cocoon that included her parents, agents, caddie and Nike people for her eagerly awaited pro debut. All were in the California desert to make sure things went smoothly for the future star. None of them, though, could help her as she sat alone in the press tent Sunday night, fighting back tears and trying to explain what went wrong. She should have been $53,126 richer, her first tournament check in her purse. She should have been eager to wing her way back to Hawaii and tell her friends at school about how they pay you to play a game you love. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Instead, she looked as if she had just been called into the principal’s office for punishment. If her name was Jeong Jang, Marisa Baena or any of the other anonymous players in the Samsung World Championship, she would have escaped without anyone saying a word. But this was Michelle Wie, who might as well replace the swoosh on her shirt and hat with big targets. Her crime? You might stretch it and say she cheated, dropping her ball closer to the hole in Saturday’s third round so she could salvage a par after hitting it into a bush. Those more charitable would say she was simply a careless teenager who made a mistake. Another group — which includes Wie and her entourage — would argue she did nothing wrong at all. center_img “I don’t feel like I cheated,” Wie said. Don’t ask Michael Bamberger in which group he stands. He said he was simply trying to protect the integrity of the game when he walked up to a rules official late Sunday afternoon to say he had concerns about how Wie handled the drop from a day before. Bamberger is a writer for Sports Illustrated, a job that gives him up-close access to the play of field in golf. He and some other writers were following Wie around the course when she declared an unplayable lie in a Gold Lantana bush, then took a drop onto some nearby grass that to Bamberger seemed was closer to the hole — a no-no in golf. The problem wasn’t just that Bamberger made a case about it, though most journalists would argue that their job is to report the news, not make it. But he didn’t have his fit of conscience until late the next day, which was way too late for Wie to make any remedy. “I thought about it more and was just uncomfortable that I knew something,” Bamberger said. “Integrity is at the heart of the game. I don’t think she cheated. I think she was just hasty.” Being hasty, of course, is part of being a 16-year-old, which is part of the reason the LPGA Tour has a rule that you have to be 18 before you can become a full-time touring pro. Wie’s caddie even warned her before she took the drop that she had to be careful not to drop the ball any closer to the hole. But the moral arbiters of the game aren’t writers who think they see something, or fans who call in after seeing what they believe are wrongs committed on TV. They’re the players themselves, who are ultimately responsible for policing themselves in the one sport where players call penalties on themselves. That’s what happened in Las Vegas on Sunday when Kevin Stadler was disqualified after informing a rules official that he had an illegal club in his bag — a wedge with a damaged shaft. Stadler was tied for fifth place and looking at a big chunk of change, but like Wie, ended up going home empty-handed. Wie made a bad drop, but you could blame that on the fact that she’s 16 and probably studies fashion magazines more closely than rule books. You could also blame playing partner Grace Park, who should have been watching but was apparently too preoccupied with her own game at the time. So Wie learned a $53,126 lesson and something probably just as valuable — don’t always trust the press. In the long term, it’s a mere hiccup in a career that will likely earn her untold millions. Wie already had $10 million in the bank even before celebrating her Sweet 16th last Tuesday — thanks to lucrative sponsor deals with Nike and Sony. Still, it would have been nice to frame that first check and put it in the trophy case. It would have been nice to buy the girls she hangs out with at Punahou School in Honolulu lunch this week and tell them it came from her first winnings playing golf. Instead, she walked out of the press tent surrounded by her parents and the rest of her support group. She got in a golf cart with her mother and father, and likely had a good cry. It wasn’t the way the teenager with the dangling earrings dreamed the week would end. “I’m pretty sad, but, you know, I think I’m going to get over it,” Wie said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

India wins 10 medals in a day at XII Commonwealth Games in Brisbane, including 5 gold

After scrounging for silvers and bronzes for a week at the XII Commonwealth Games in Brisbane, Australia, last fortnight, the Indian contingent struck gold on October 8, with four of its wrestlers grappling their way to the top, four others settling for second place and a lone matman taking a bronze.The limelight shone especially brightly on the fifth gold medallist: badminton player Syed Modi, who defeated Nick Yates of England in a pulsating 75-minute encounter to ensure that the crown that Prakash Padukone brought to India four years ago from Edmonton, Canada, remained in the country. With the tinkling haul of medals on Friday, India moved up to a respectable sixth place in the medals table from a dismal 12th position.It was Modi who began India’s gold rush with his win over Yates, who was seeded second in the tournament. The modest, unassuming player has lived for years in the mighty Padukone’s shadow, so that this major international championship will go a long way to establishing him as a redoubtable player in his own right.Modi later admitted that he was nervous at the beginning of the match and this showed when he lost the first game 7-15. Then the confidence started flowing back and Modi levelled the encounter by winning the second game 15-6. Yates could do little thereafter to stem the Modi tide, which took the third game, and with it the match, at 15-5.advertisementWrestling Success: India’s medals drive revved up after this when, one by one, the wrestlers started coming good. Rajinder Singh in the 74 kg class, Jagminder Singh (68 kg), Mahabir Singh (52 kg) and Ram Chander Sarang (48 kg) were golden boys. A rung below them were Rajinder Singh (100 kg plus), Satpal Singh (100 kg), Kartar Singh (90 kg) and Ashok Kumar (57 kg), who won silver medals.Jai Prakash Mangar in the light-heavyweight class was the bronze medallist. Satpal Singh could have brought India a gold, but he was fighting almost one-handed – the index finger of his left hand was broken – and considering the circumstances it was a brave performance.However, there was one bout where the Indians were clearly not happy with the result. In the 57 kg tussle, Brian Aspen of England very narrowly outpointed – 6-4 – the defending champion Ashok Kumar. Two of the three officials for the match were Canadians and Indian coach K.N. Singh felt that this should have been avoided as the Canadians were battling with India all the way for the wrestling honours. Added Singh: “We were not happy with the scoring of this bout. But overall we are very pleased with our performance.”The string of medals on October 8, even though they were largely restricted to one sport was a welcome shot in the arm for the Indians after a disappointing week in which the swimmers and the much-vaunted athletes were often worse placed than the also-rans. Three weight-lifters and a pair of shooters had brought four silvers, while another pair of shooters and a boxer had brought in two bronzes.The first Indian to climb onto the victory stand was  iron man Gurunandan Kombiah who totalled 200 kg in the 52 kg class for the silver; he was followed by Bijay Kumar Satpathy in the 52 to 56 kg class with a total of 227.5 kg and M.T. Selvan in the 60 kg class with 245 kg.Fighting Performances: Meanwhile, the shooters were doing their bit. A silver arrived through Mohinder Lal and Ashok Kumar Pandit in the centre-fire team event – combined total: 1,138 points. In the rapid-fire team event, Sharad Chauhan and R.K. Vij grabbed the bronze with a tally of 1,151 points. The only boxer to do anything was the durable T. Machaiah who fought his way to a bronze.Another Indian boxer to impress was Birender Singh Thapa, but unfortunately he was eliminated early on. And India lost the chance for another medal in badminton: in the women’s doubles, Ami Ghia and Kanwal Thakur Singh played off for the third and fourth places but had to be content with the fourth.Predictably, Australia, England and Canada dominated the Games. Topping the excitement was a world record in swimming and a unique dead-heat in athletics. In the 200 m individual medley Canadian Alex Bouwman broke his own 14-month-old record by 0.53 seconds when he clocked in at 2 minutes 2.25 seconds. In the 200 m sprint, Allan Wells of Scotland and Mike McFarlane of England crossed the line together: after scratching their heads for nearly half-an-hour over the video tape record, the judges awarded golds to both.advertisementFor India, the lessons were clear: Indian sportsmen have a tough battle on their hands at the ninth Asiad in November. The athletes and the swimmers, who have not exactly covered themselves in glory in Brisbane, will face much stiffer competition when Japan, China and the two Koreas will all be in the ring. Hopefully, the broad but overworked shoulders of the Indian matmen will not have to carry the burden in November, as they did so gracefully in Brisbane.last_img read more
