For the third time this season -- and sixth time overall -- Michelle Wie will compete in a PGA Tour event this week. Like the other five occasions, she was handed a spot in the 84 Lumber Classic field by way of sponsor's exemption rather than a qualification process.
So, the question remains: Should PGA Tour tournament directors continue giving sponsors' exemptions to the 16-year-old? On the one hand, golf is big business and Wie draws fans and increases ticket sales. On the other, many players have become infuriated by the concept that she has simply been handed everything rather than earning it.
ESPN.com's Bob Harig and GolfDigest.com's Ron Sirak chime in with their opinions in this week's edition of Alternate Shot.
