Annika Sorenstam

As I write this, Annika Sorenstam, the number one female golfer in the world, birdied the fourth hole at the Bank of America Colonial, a men's PGA Tour event. She is the first woman in 58 years to be playing in a men's field. The course is a par 70, measuring 7080 yards, and it will be longest course she has ever played in competition. I'll be watching her over the next few days, and hopefully, into the weekend.

Last year's winner (Nick Price) finished 13-under par. In earlier interviews, she has acknowledged that making the cut and shooting just plain par would be excellent. Good luck, Annika!
