You go, girl!

152 to 1, 18 slots, tied for 13th, 1 bogey,
2 birdies, 1 under, 15 holes to go,
and 16 years young.

If she pulls it off, she'll be the first
woman to qualify...ever.

You can watch hole-to-hole coverage here.

Welcome to the sport, young lady.

You could shoot half, no one third, my score on your worst day.

Best of luck.

But don't you dare cry.

Hey, there's always next year.
Good show young lady.

Since she's only 16, I'll keep my lewd, lascivious thoughts to myself.

Too bad. The last 9 holes did her in but I'm betting that she'll make enough birdies next year or the year after to qualify, and if so she'll still be younger (and no longer jail bait) than when Tiger entered his first US Open at 19!

In Times Square, there is a huge billboard picture of Danica Patrick that I pass every day on my way to work (and which invariably makes me smile), which has the tag line: Gentlemen, Start Your Excuses....IRL Rookie of the Year.

Maybe next year's billboard will be a picture of Michelle Wie with the tag line: Gentlemen, tee up your Excuses:)

I'll use Samuel Clemens' (A.K.A. Mark Twain) excuse, with which I agree wholeheartedly:

"Golf is a good walk spoilt."
