Stay Classy, San Diego
I'll start off by accepting any & all criticism for ripping on a 16-year-old girl, but here goes. ESPN is reporting, courtesy Ron Sirak of GolfDigest.com, that Michelle Wie fired her caddy, Greg Johnston. Why? Perhaps Michelle (& her family?) was upset at her 26th place finish at the Women's British Open this past weekend. It was the first time in 8 LPGA events with Johnston (who previously caddied for Juli Inkster on her way to 4 major championships) on her bag that Wie did not finish in the top 5. So how did Wie break the news to Johnston? Through her agent ... who called Johnston at Manchester airport Monday. Said a befuddled Johnston, "I was extremely disappointed that no one named Wie gave me the news."
