Annika Srenstam

Annika Srenstam Template:Audio is a professional golfer from Sweden.

Born in Stockholm on October 9, 1970, Srenstam became a professional golfer in 1993 and is considered by many to be the most successful female golfer ever.

As of 13 June 2005, she had won 62 LPGA tournaments (see list below), including nine majors. Every year from 2000 to 2005 she won at least five tournaments and she tops the LPGA's career money list by several million dollars, with earnings of over seventeen million dollars [1] (http://www.lpga.com/player_stats.aspx?y=2005&o=2).

She's won seven Rolex Player of the Year awards, and is the holder of various all-time scoring records, including the lowest score in a single round (59 in the second round of the 2001 Standard Register PING tournament) and the lowest scoring average for one season (68.70 in 2002).

Amid notable controversy, Srenstam was invited to play in The Colonial golf tournament in Fort Worth, Texas in May of 2003, making her the first woman to play in a PGA event since Babe Zaharias, who qualified for the 1945 Los Angeles Open. Cheered through each hole, she shot a +5, tying for 96th out of the 111 who finished the first two rounds, not enough to make the cut.

She qualified for the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2000, but was not eligible for induction until finishing her tenth year on the LPGA tour, which she did in October 2003. She won the "World Sportswoman of the Year" award at the Laureus World Sports Awards in 2004. She won her last two LPGA events of that season and her first three of 2005 to equal Nancy Lopez's LPGA Tour record of five consecutive victories.
