Michelle Wie fended off another round of criticism before her final LPGA Tour appearance of the year in the Canadian Women's Open in Ottawa, Ontario.
"Everyone has their own opinion of what I should do, but I think that it's my life," Wie said. "I know there might be wrong decisions that I make and there might be right decisions that I make, but they're decisions that I make for myself.
"And I think the only decision I can make is to be 100% supportive of myself and not doubt myself at all."
Wie, 18, a student at Stanford, is ranked No. 309 in the world and is using the last of her sixth sponsor exemptions for the season. She needs to win or finish second to avoid a trip to Q-school.
"I haven't really decided anything yet," Wie said. "I think planning what's going to happen next year or this fall is going to happen after this week. Right now, all I'm thinking about is how am I going to play good this week."
Asked if she would consider Q-school, Wie replied, "I'm not going to think about the future right now."
Her past isn't much to dwell on, either.
In her last start, she missed the cut in the PGA Tour's Reno event with rounds of 73 and 80. In the State Farm Classic in her last LPGA Tour start, Wie was disqualified for failing to sign her second-round scorecard.
"I kind of feel sad for her," Evian Masters winners Helen Alfredsson said. "I kind of feel sad for the guidance that she seems to not have in the right direction."
