Woosie's half a dozen
- 7 Sep 06, 04:36 PM
CRANS-SUR-SIERRE - Today was to be the day when I wasn't going to think too much about the Ryder Cup - this was Michelle's day as Wie was making her European Tour debut.
I was all set to get out onto the course and be in position to analyse the merits of the 16-year-old wonderkid - but the K Club can't be ignored.
The call came in that, yes, Woosie had taken half of his team over to the Ryder Cup course for some golf and team-building.
The captain and his assistants Peter Baker and Des Smyth were being joined by Harrington, Olazabal, Clarke, Howell, Donald and Casey. It seems it was all arranged at fairly late notice and they're staying overnight and flying home in the morning.
Even so, it seems odd that there was no pre-publicity. Surely this was a great indication that Woosnam's captaincy is in full swing and his team are coming together, the ideal riposte to Thomas Bjorn's early-week rant.
So while I was concentrating on the latest Ryder Cup developments, I was missing Wie - mind you her scorecard told the tale that she's clearly out of her depth at this level.
Mind you, losing an earring at the fourth and being put on the clock on the fifth didn't exactly help.
