Annika Sorenstam lives on the 16th hole of the Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. She likes to look out the office window and see her son occasionally rush into the hole. She also seemed to have a prime-time view of the upcoming Gainbridge LPGA event. That is, until LPGA announces on Tuesday that Sorenstam has promised to attend an event in Orlando from February 25th to 28th.
This is the first time Sorenstam has played against an LPGA player at an official event since he retired from the tour in 2008. Last month, Sorenstam made his debut in the Celebrity category of the Diamond Resort Tournament of Champions. She finished ninth at the event and used the Modified Stableford scoring system.
The 50-year-old Sorenstam had a design to debut at this year’s US Senior Women’s Open until the date was changed to coincide with the Summer Olympics. As President of the International Golf Federation, Sorenstam will be waiting in Tokyo if the tournament is held on time.
The 10-time major winner and two mothers own a total of 72 LPGA titles. She announced her decision to retire at the end of the season shortly after her last LPGA victory at the Kingsmill’s Michelob Ultra Open in May 2008.
