The scorecard does not recognize her age. It only recognizes strokes, and if she's going to do any winning or even make many cuts against pros, be they men or women, she better lower that number of strokes before she goes on tour full time, and if she takes the standard 4 years to finish college, she'll be on tour full time by about May 2011. As deficient as her short game and her putting appear to be, she's got a lot of improving to do in that time if she's not to embarrass herself as a full time pro, because by then the novelty factor of a 17 year old girl who can smack the ball from here to Timbuktu will have faded, and she'll have to produce results to maintain her popularity and her huge annual endorsement haul. She has a long way to go and a short time to get there, and she had best use her college years wisely.
