Sorenstam to have another chance vs men

Annika Sorenstam is done playing on the PGA Tour, but Colonial might not be her last chance to play against the men.

Organizers of the Skins Game are trying to decide whether to offer Sorenstam a sponsor's exemption into the original silly-season event, which is moving to the Trilogy at La Quinta in the California desert. It will be played Nov. 29-30.

``I haven't had any talks about it, but I would do a special event, something like that,'' Sorenstam said last week at Pumpkin Ridge.

Offered an exemption, would she say yes?

``I would be flattered,'' Sorenstam said. ``I would consider it, because it's not a PGA event, and I won't do another PGA event. But a special event like this is different.''

Mark O'Meara is the defending champion.

Tiger Woods has a contract with Disney-owned ABC Sports to play the occasional Skins Game, but he won't return this year. For one thing, it falls the week after the Presidents Cup in South Africa.

Mark Steinberg, Sorenstam's agent at IMG, confirmed the Skins Game was a possibility.

``It would not be inconsistent with what she has said about not playing another PGA Tour event,'' Steinberg said Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the 32-year-old Swede already is booked for one competition against the men -- the Tiger Skins in Singapore on Nov. 12-14.

Retief Goosen is the defending champion, although it was not clear if he'll play. Steinberg said the Tiger Skins will feature three other men.
