Annika Sorenstam wants rankings tuned

The new Rolex Rankings system for professional women players, which debuted this spring amidst much controversy for including Michelle Wie as No. 3 and then moving her up to No. 2.

But Annika Sorenstam, the undisputed No. 1-ranked female, believes the system will work out its kinks and ultimately prove to be a valuable measuring stick.

"It's a good starting point," Sorenstam told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Will it have to be tweaked? Absolutely. They have to work out the kinks and hope it will be an accurate measurement of who is the best player in the world."

Sorenstam, who won 10 times last year, rightfully has more than four times as many points as anyone else.

But Wie, who hasn’t won an event of any kind since 2003, is ranked ahead of 2005 LPGA Rookie of the Year Paula Creamer, who won four times in 2005, twice on the LPGA Tour and twice in Japan; Cristie Kerr, who won twice on the LPGA Tour; Lorena Ochoa and Jeong Jang, both of whom won once.
