Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is LPGA golfer Birdie Kim. The 23-year-old South Korean native won the US Women's Golf Open two months ago. For winning the Open, Birdie pocketed 560,000 dollars.

The US Open was over two months, but according to tour caddy and blogger Larry Smith, Birdie owes her US Open caddy Miles his pay for the Open. This is not chump change, a caddy earns 10% of what a player collects for a week. For Miles that is $56,000.

In addition Miles is no longer working for Birdie. She isn't playing in Springfield Illinois this week either. Birdie returned to South Korea, her new caddy Lance saying he couldn't accompany her. Ms. Kim if what Larry is reporting is true, has become a parriah due to her stinginess.

There is no excusing the lack of payment either. A player gets her winnings direct deposited to an financial account they have. Two months is more than ample time for a golfer to pay what their caddy is owed. For defrauding her caddy of his pay, Birdie Kim is today's Knucklehead of the day.
