Annika Targets Number 1 Spot Again

Sweden’s Annika Sorenstam is enjoying that winning feeling again after capturing the 72nd title of her career in America at the weekend.

The former World Number One went the whole of last year without winning, prompting fears that back and neck injuries would force the ten-time Major champion into retirement.

The Swede, who’s now 37, won the LPGA Open by a tournament record 19 under par on sunday, and has now won two titles in as many starts after taking the Stanford International Pro-Am two weeks ago.

”I feel great. The season has started very well,” Sorenstam said.

”It’s nice to be back playing some good golf. I feel like I’m in control of the golf ball again. It’s a nice feeling.”

”Getting back to number one is going to be very tough because Lorena Ochoa is playing so well. She won a lot of tournaments last year and has five this year.

”But I’m just enjoying winning again and I’ll just take each tournament as it comes,” Sorenstam said.
