Annika is playing another LPGA event!
Next week the LPGA Tour gets back in action at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club in Orlando, Florida. Watching the LPGA Tour events is always amazing and there is so much talent on tour but this week will be especially special. Annika Sorenstam is teeing it up in her first LPGA Tour event since the season-ending ADT Championship in November of 2008.
Watching Annika play a round of golf is something I never thought I would ever get to see, and then in March of 2020 (right before the world shut down due to COVID-19), I got to watch her tee it up in the pro-am of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. That was a dream come true to watch her in person! Then when she announced she was playing in the celebrity division of the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions I was thrilled, she is such a machine, and seeing her play is incredible. Watching her compete was a whole other thing, she still has it! Her announcement to play in the Gainbridge LPGA was a surprise but definitely not something that people hadn't hoped for. Annika is hoping (schedule permitting) to play in the US Women's Senior Open at the end of July. Annika has inspired so many people (including me!) with her countless accomplishments and this will no doubt continue that trend.
Wishing the best of luck to Annika and all of the incredible players teeing it up this week at Lake Nona!
