Wie can "earn" exemption to U.S. Women's Open,: which is the stance of the USGA at this current time. Apparently the 16-year-old can earn yet another free pass if she plays well enough in the LPGA events leading up to the Open. Fellow teen phenom Morgan Pressel thinks Wie should go through qualifying. I think she should too. Her free rides should end. Time to start earning her spot.
