Michelle Wie thought she earned $53,126 in her first paycheck, but later learned she was disqualified.

PALM DESERT, Calif. (Oct. 16) - Michelle Wie's pro debut made her look like an amateur Sunday when she was disqualified for taking a bad drop from the bushes in the third round of the Samsung World Championship. Talk about a rude welcome less than two weeks after turning pro.

First, Annika Sorenstam blew away the field to win by eight shots, even with a double bogey on the last hole.

Then, the 16-year-old Wie no sooner had signed for a 74 to finish fourth - $53,126 - that LPGA Tour officials took her out to the seventh hole to discuss a drop she took the day before.

Nearly two hours later, she was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard. Because Wie dropped the ball closer to the hole - by 3 inches according to her, by about a foot according to the rules officials - she should have added two strokes to her third-round 71.

"I learned a great lesson," Wie said, her voice choking with emotion. "From now on, I'll call a rules official no matter where it is, whether its 3 inches or 100 yards. I respect that."

Yes the official was with the group, but a SI reporter dropped the dime on her after the day? He told the judges it happened. Wonder if she will do an interview with him?

No doubt....

WTF is with that anyway?

IF I called the NFL front office whining about a bad call in a game do you think they'd go back and replay the game?

Total crap...if they missed it in real life then they should have let it go even if it was on video...

What a total RAT that SI reporter is...what do you think his odds are of EVER getting another golfer to talk to him again....he better find a new beat.

I also think she got shafted. It is not like she intentional kicked the ball away from a tree like I do everytime I play with my golf buddies. :lol:

But, golf is one of the few sports where you call penalties on yourself, and a game where integrity and sportsmanship is everything. I guess she learned a valuable lesson. She can make up the $50K she lost easily. I think she was embarrased more than anything, but it was a still a crap call.

golf is one of the few sports where lame a$$ fans can call in what they see on TV and get players in trouble. It happens a lot with the men too. It sucks that they DQ'ed her. I guess next time she'll get a official, and then the media can complain about her slow play and lack of knowledge about the rules.

I agree. And I can't stand her & the media's fascination with her.

I bet you all that every player on the LPGA was thrilled to hear the news...they probably can't stand her.

I agree. I think she's an outcast on the tour. Lots of jealousy.
