HONOLULU -- It seems there was a sitcom on ABC not too long ago called "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter." I wouldn't know. Never saw it. Must have been in the same time slot as "European Tour Weekly."

But it seemed like a catchy way to introduce my preview to this week's Sony Open, featuring Honolulu's own favorite teenager, Michelle Wie. Two years ago, in her first professional men's event, Wie missed the cut by one stroke and beat the likes of Adam Scott over the first two days.
