Sorenstam gains narrow victory

Annika Sorenstam won a showdown with Se Ri Pak on Sunday, overcoming a four-hole deficit for a 1-up victory in the World Ladies Match Play Championship.

Sorenstam earned $144,000 for her career-high seventh victory of the year to push her season total to $1,828,868, just $49,985 behind the LPGA Tour record set last year by Karrie Webb.

Pak, second on the tour with five victories and $1,623,009, won four of the first six holes to take a 4-up lead, but Sorenstam won four straight holes to tie it on the 11th.

Sorenstam took the lead on No. 15 and halved the final three holes for the Swedish star's 30th LPGA Tour victory.

In the semifinals Sunday morning, Sorenstam beat Canada's Lorie Kane 4 and 2, and Pak defeated Taiwan's Huang Yu-chen 6 and 4.

The tournament was the LPGA Tour's first match-play event since 1992. It replaced the World Ladies Challenge, a team event between the LPGA Tour and Japan LPGA.
