I think that she can make it a positive thing, but she needs to control her career, a bit more by herself, and not letting mom and dad do everything for her.
I don't know about that. Players like Catriona Matthew and Juli Inkster have managed to have successful careers while travelling with young children in their hotel room, not to mention everything else being a parent entails. Every player has obstacles off the course. Michelle Wie was mostly out of school during the golf season, also, so the writing essays in the hotel room seems a bit exaggerated.

Yeah, I guess at age 22 you can be as mature as when you're +35 and handle off-the course activities just fine...

Only if you're from a prestigious college in Massachusetts

What was different is that she was also going to college when she wasn't playing tournaments. The question remains how not being in college will affect her career in 2012? It could be positive for her or it could be negative.
As much as it pains my heart I have to agree fully with Blue on this. She played a full schedule based on the LPGA schedule as it was.

So...if Blue was Hillary Rodham Clinton, you'd be Barack Hussien Obama, right?
