golf for beginners ipodClick here to listen.

This is the week that we've all been waiting for. Will Michelle Wie qualify for the U.S. Open at Winged Foot and play golf alongside the top PGA players in the world?

We also consider Sorenstam versus Wie for a Celebrity "Ratings" Deathmatch. Why hasn't Annika stepped up and attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open?

ESPN will update Wie's progress every half-hour and The Golf Channel will have a special on Michelle on Monday evening. I guess they understand who gets the big ratings!

Attention all women! This is OUR week! Go to Play Golf America, find out which course is hosting American Express Women's Golf Week and attend! There are 565 facilities taking part this year offering a variety of activities from clubfitting and equipment demonstrations to golf apparel fashion shows and contests. I'll be playing scramble format at Pelham/Split Rock Golf Course in the Bronx and I hope to see you there!

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Go Red for Women, helping women to understand and defeat heart disease. Every woman counts!

Barry and I also offer up our usual "slew" of golf tips. Playing happy golf takes on even more importance when you're playing people with whom you don't get along!

We also include some fun facts about the U.S. Open.
