Sorenstam disappointed with Major return

World number one Annika Sorenstam failed in her bid to win all four majors this year but is considering setting herself the same target in 2005.

At the start of 2004, the Swede said she wanted to become the first player to win all four majors in one season but she had to settle for just one -- the LGPA Championship in June.

"I only won one (major) this year, so it was a little bit disappointing," Sorenstam told Swedish public television SVT on Tuesday. "Maybe I should set the same goal next year."

The 33-year-old has dominated the women's game for the past four years and her victory at the LPGA Championship two months ago earned her the seventh major title of her career.

However, on Sunday she ended her defence of the British Women's Open at Sunningdale, England with a rather disappointing 71 and had to settle for a share of 13th place.

"Of course, I'm disappointed but I gave it my all," she said. "But this week shows that you've got to shoot a lot under par to win and that's a great credit to women's golf."

Sorenstam is back in her native country to play in the HP Open Ladies European Tour event, which takes place from August 5-8 near Stockholm.
