Annika Calls it a Day

I just read this story about the upcoming retirement of Annika Sorenstam. I’ll miss her.
Sorenstam has dominated women’s golf for 15 years. Out of the 293 professional tournaments she’s played in, she’s finished in the top 10 in 206, winning 72 including 10 majors.

Additionally she claims eight Rolex Player of the Year awards, eight money titles, six Vare Trophies for lowest scoring average, eight Solheim Cup selections and more than $22 million in career earnings. She is in the LPGA Hall of Fame.

She has been the only woman so far to enter a mens pro tourney and actually be competitve. She is highly respected by both the men and women players and has certainly done her share to put women’s golf on the map and women’s sports in general.
