Interview with a PGA Professional (part 2), Michelle Wie makes golf history, impact tape and Barry dodges flack about the tee box

Click here to listen.


In my interview last week with PGA Professional Martin Nolletti, Martin stressed the fundamentals. This week Martin discusses the biggest problems for women golfers and gives "casual" golfers a few tips on how to stay even.

With many listeners commenting about Barry's supposed lack of tee box etiquette, Barry battles back. We also respond to a question about how to use impact tape.

And, you either love her or you don't but Michelle Wie is making an impact in the men's arena. Although Wie Sung-mi (her Korean name) fell twelve strokes shy of victory at the rain-shortened SK Telecom Open, she made the cut and delighted thousands of Wie watchers worldwide. With her confidence surging, Michelle will now attempt several more cuts in men's tournaments, first at U.S. Open qualifying rounds in Hawaii and then on to two PGA tournament qualifiers, the John Deere Classic in July where Wie missed the cut by a mere two strokes and then onto the 84 Lumber Classic in September.
