REGISTER STAFF REPORT


July 14, 2006



Silvis, Ill. — Michelle Wie has withdrawn from the PGA’s John Deere Classic this afternoon in the middle of the second round after experiencing stomach pains and possible heat exhaustion.

Wie decided to pull out of the tournament on a hot day after playing nine of 18 holes.

“I’m going to stop,” Wie told her family as she walked off the course.

Wie was given an IV and taken to a hosptial as a precaution, officials said.

B.J. Wie, Michelle's father, said stomach pain and the warm weather were suspected: "Maybe the combination," he said.

She should try playing sport, then she'd be knackered!

I hope she's ok, but she wasn't going to make the cut anyway.

This is so sad. A golfer is taken off because of heat exhaustion. Maybe if golf was actually athletic, I'd understand, but it isn't. Tennis players don't even have this happen and they run. Silly golfers. The act like they are athletes, when in truth they are not.

btw, I hope Michelle is okay. Maybe she should get on the treadmill and start running.

There is the proof golf is not a sport. Sport = moving. Not walking, hitting a ball each 10 minutes. Being a caddie (caddy ) means more effort than being a golfer And who gets the $$$$?

A few people here need to watch their tone... this is still a real person who needed to be carted off on a stretcher. The attutide in here seems to be that pfff, who cares about her, she's just a golfer

I could be carted off on a stretcher whenever I fancied. Reached for fridge door - oops, call a stretcher. Turned on the light, oops, exertion, call for a stretcher.

No one told anyone to watch 'tone' but you. Now go watch it.

Standing in the sun all day isn't the easiest thing to do. Golf is as much a sport as any other activity. It requires a hell of a lot more brain technique than most tennis players could even hope to have, and I am by no means a fan of golf.

You people who say golf is not a sport obviously have not played it.
