Annika Sorenstam Was the Tiger Woods of the LPGA for 26 Years, and Now Golf Tech is Making Her Comeback 'Electric'
Annika Sorenstam retired from competitive golf in 2008 as not only one of the best golfers of all-time, but as the most consistent winner ever.
Her 23.5% career-winning percentage (72 wins out of 307 LPGA Tour starts) is the highest of any golfer on the PGA or LPGA Tours, just ahead of the sports’ other dominant figure from the 1990s and 2000s, Tiger Woods (82 victories out of 368 PGA tour events, 22.3%).
Sorenstam, a World Golf Hall of Famer, also ranks as the LPGA’s all-time money leader with more than $22 million in earnings. She played for Team Europe in eight Solheim Cups, including Europe’s 2003 victory over the U.S. that was played in her native Sweden.
During her 26-year professional career, Sorenstam won 10 major LPGA Tour championships, beginning with her first LPGA Tour win at the 1995 U.S. Open. She remains the only female golfer to shoot a 59.
