Annika Story Gets Another Chapter

The legacy unfolded slowly but deliberately. Rolex Rookie of the Year in 1994; Her first LPGA Tour victory in 1995 – the U.S. Women’s Open, no less – along with Rolex Player of the Year and the Vare Trophy. But it was 25 years ago, when she won again at the 1996 U.S. Women’s Open, that Annika Sorenstam shouted her arrival. Now, after 13 years away, she returns.

There is an entire generation of fans – including her children – who’ve never seen Annika in an official LPGA Tour event. But that changes at the Gainbridge Championship Feb. 25-28, literally in Sorenstam’s backyard at Lake Nona in Orlando, Fla. Those who love golf get a precious mulligan – the chance to see one of the best compete again.

“I am overwhelmed at the positive response to my deciding to play,” Sorenstam says. “Ava and Will are excited and are a big part of why I will do it. The members at Lake Nona have been really nice too, asking me nearly every day the past couple of weeks to play. I’m glad it worked out and I’m thankful there is a category for Hall of Famers, which I didn’t even know about.”

Check out all the top shots of the week from the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, featuring Daniel Berger, Phil Mickelson, Paul Casey and Jordan Spieth among others.

Rory McIlroy Elected PGA Tour Player Advisory Council Chairman for 2021

Rory McIlroy became the first player not born in the United States to be elected to the PGA Tour policy board.

McIlroy won the player-only election for chairman of the player advisory council and the Northern Irishman will ascend to the policy board in 2022 for a three-year term.

“I’ve enjoyed being on the PAC the last couple of years and I think that with what’s happening between the PGA Tour and the European Tour I have the ear of the PGA Tour and I have the ear of the European Tour,” McIlroy told GolfChannel.com at last month’s Farmers Insurance Open. “I just feel like I’ve been around a long time and I feel I can maybe help facilitate things and maybe guide things in a certain direction for what I think is better for everyone.”

In the opening round of the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, 19-year-old Akshay Bhatia fired an 8-under 64, and became the first player since 2008 to hit all 18 greens in regulation at Pebble Beach.
