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.
The 34-year-old Sorenstam is fresh off a come-from-behind win at the Samsung World Championship Sunday. She chipped in a 40-footer from the fringe for an eagle 3 on No. 15 en route to her 54th career LPGA victory. Sorenstam, who qualified for the LPGA Hall of Fame last year, has won seven major championships and the career Grand Slam.
In 2003, Sorenstam became the first woman in 58 years to compete on the PGA Tour at the Colonial. May and Walsh won gold in Athens without losing a set in seven matches
