Michelle Wie has fallen to seventeenth position dropping beneath rival Morgan Pressel in the latest Rolex Rankings. Although her cast has been removed, it is unknown if Wie's wrist will be in perfect working condition for the Kraft Nabisco, the first LPGA major of 2007.

Should Wie play anyway or would a bad showing do more damage than good, in more ways than one?

Even Tiger Woods gets frustrated from time-to-time, as evidenced after the third round of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational. Lamenting to reporters about his "pathetic" game, Tiger also felt his putting let him down and, as Tiger stated, "on this golf course, if you miss a fairway, it's almost an automatic bogey."

Negative self-talk never helped any player win a golf tournament!

We also talk about how to temper your swing by controlling your aggression and give a review on The Shoe Tool, a thoughtful new creation which solves a common problem both during and after a round of golf.
