Here is his take on the Solheim Cup, arguing that 2011 Solheim Cup saved the tournament:
New faces and a dramatic victory by Europe two years ago add buzz to this year's Solheim Cup
BY RON SIRAK
August 14, 2013
The talk going into the 12th Solheim Cup at Killeen Castle in 2011 was muted but persistent. The event, in the form it existed, was in trouble.
With the United States having won three consecutive competitions rather handily it was time to bolster the European team with reinforcements from Asia, Australia and other nations not eligible for the Solheim Cup, some said.
But in one hour of competitive brilliance that matched any other 60 minutes in the sport that year -- and in most other years -- Europe not only won, but it saved the event as a competition against the United States.
When the blue and gold side took three and a half of the final four points for a 15-13 victory to raucous hometown-side cheers and capped it with a wild celebration, it was clear the Solheim Cup had come of age and needed to be left alone. ... Continued ...

the thing with Wie is that her foremost thought is having fun. if the US has a comfortable lead the pressure is off her and Michelle may play well.
on the other hand if it's tense Wie will very likely wilt under pressure like she's done so many times in the past especially when she's close to the "finish line".

The waiting is almost over. It’s time for the talk to subside and the ladies to hit the course and see who will emerge triumphant at Solheim Cup 2013. Well, I guess there is still the official opening ceremony and the related festivities. I can feel the excitement building. I suppose I can wait another day until the real fireworks begin. Good luck to both teams.
Don't fear failure. — Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.
