Sorenstam earns Hall of Fame

The Woodlands, USA: Annika Sorenstam played a historic round of golf that qualified her for the LPGA Hall of Fame. It only left her tied for second place in the Samsung World Championships. Se Ri Pak finished the long rain-delayed 36-hole day at 7-under 137, two strokes in front of Sorenstam and four others. Sorenstam needed to complete 18 holes as the last step in adding the Hall of Fame to her illustrious career. She got that with a 2-under 70 in the first 18 holes and followed with a 69 at the TPC at The Woodlands. Sorenstam is the defending champion and she also won in 1995 and 1996. There are two other three-time winners in the field, Beth Daniel (1980, 1981, 1994) and Juli Inkster (1997, 1998, 2000). Other former winners in the 20-player field are Meg Mallon (1991), Pak (1999) and Rosie Jones (1988).
