Annika Sorenstam to Retire after '08
In really strange, John Elway-style news, the AP is reporting that Annika Sorenstam is going to retire after this season.
Sorenstam is only 37-years old, which would be like Tiger Woods hanging up his really sweet Nike golf shoes in five years.
I'm a little torn on this idea, but I guess it's because I'm really competitive but at the same time would enjoy swimming around "Ducktales" style in my gold coin vault.
Annika has won 72 tournaments and ten majors, so she obviously don't have a lot to prove, but a Lorena Ochoa-Annika Sorenstam battle might be really good for the LPGA in the coming years.
I guess when it's time to go, it's time to go.
(Also, that is two LPGA posts in a row here at DTCC, a new record)
