Incidentally, there were 156 players in the John Deere field, and among them were eight sponsors exemptions. Four were restricted to PGA Tour members who werent otherwise exempt for the tournament. The other four are unrestricted ' they go to whomever the sponsor wishes to invite (in this case, Michelle.)
Those who dont agree with the Wie invite had better get used to it ' John Deere tournament director Clair Peterson says seven more events have invited the 15-year-old. Of course, she cant accept them all. There is no indication that she will accept any except the Sony Open in Hawaii. With that ' happy reading!
