At the risk of starting up the whole controversy again (yet again) let
me draw your attention to page 215 of the 2007 Golfsmith Annual Buyer's
Guide, which they call "he BIG RED book"

The photo of Michelle Wie hawking some Nike clothing has a caption that
reads: "LPGA Star Michelle Wie"

Did they bend the rules for her while I was looking the other way?

She plays on the LPGA...she's a star..her name is Michelle Wie. Where's
the Ooops?

A "star" is someone who people come to see, who attracts a lot of
attention and who is identified closely with a certain pursuit. Like
"movie stars", many of whom are terrible actors, have never won an Oscar
but are houshold names and whom people love.

She also plays on the PGA tour. Maybe the ad should have read: "PGA Star
Michelle Wie".

Who is they? Golfsmith, Nike, or the LPGA? My vote is on Nike.
