Sorenstam named Sportswoman of the Year

The accolades, like her putts, just keep rolling in for Annika Sorenstam. A six-time winner on the LPGA Tour this season, Sorenstam was named Sportswoman of the Year by the Women's Sports Foundation.

She joined Olympic beach volleyball gold medalists Misty May and Kerri Walsh, who were honored in the team category.
