Busy end of year for Annika Sorenstam

Even if Annika Sorenstam wanted to add an LPGA Tour event to her schedule to try to make up ground in her bid for a sixth straight LPGA Player of the Year title, her schedule won't allow it.

Starting next week, she will be playing in four straight tournaments -- but only two on the LPGA Tour.

Sorenstam will play in Dubai next week on the Ladies European Tour, then go to Japan for the Mizuno Classic, an LPGA event she has won the last five years. Instead of playing the Tournament of Champions in Alabama, however, Sorenstam has agreed to play in Greg Norman's Merrill Lynch Shootout in Naples, Fla., where Fred Couples will be her partner. The season ends at the ADT Championship.

Sorenstam has not played the Tournament of Champions since 2002, and it was never in her plans. Then again, she usually has the points-based award wrapped up by now.

"I can't really add any more because I'm playing every week," she said. "If there was some more tournaments, maybe I would add some. I gave it a run. I had a lot of tournaments to catch them."

Sorenstam is not mathematically eliminated. She would have to win the Mizuno Classic and ADT Championship, and hope that Ochoa finishes outside the top three at her final two events, in Alabama and the Trump International.
