Sorenstam not getting enough credit
I’m not sure Annika Sorenstam is getting her just due, with all the talk going on about the hot young women golfers like Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel, et al. Here we have a woman who could turn out to be the best of all time, and it seems to me she should be getting more pub than she is, what with all the spats involving Wie, Creamer and Pressel and, yes Sorenstam herself.
Sorenstam, who just won Player of the Year honors from the Golf Writers Association of America, won 10 LPGA events this year, giving her a career total of 66 wins. She also posted the fourth-lowest scoring average in LPGA history. She’s 35 years old, and only Kathy Whitworth with 88 victories and Mickey Wright with 82 are between her and history. We could have two of golf’s greatest players ever – Sorenstam and Tiger Woods – playing right here, right now.

"Sex Sells" seems to be a re-occuring theme in the gradious scheme of things. Go figure.
In any event, I feel as of right now, these two (Tiger and Annika) are the greatest performing Golfers thus far.
What the future holds, who knows?
Nothing can slow her down.
No one can break her records.
Known as the best of all time,
Are ample to teach W, C and P.
If you want SI to pick a golfer, why pick a golfer who won two minor league LPGA Majors when Tiger won two Majors in the PGA? Let me see. We will pretend that the LPGA and the PGA are equal as long the women will just refrain from competing against the men.
Another thing. When Annika and Michelle both wound up tied for 23rd at the US Women's Open, dashing Annika's hope for a gradn slam why did everyone focus on how horrible a 15 year old amateur played to wind up tied with Annika instead of how horrible Annika played to wind up tied with a 15 year old amateur.
Plain and simple, the LPGA isn't as exciting as the PGA. Therefore, no matter how good Annika may be, she will NEVER get the credit many believe she deserves.
