Today, March 16th, marks the 10-year anniversary of Annika Sorenstam shooting 59. Sorenstam shot 59 (-13) during the second round of the 2001Standard Register PING at Moon Valley Country Club in Phoenix, Ariz. The Swede went on to win the tournament at 27-under-par, two strokes better than Se Ri Pak.

"I made such an incredible start, and it was such fun, to put it mildly," she said after carding 13 birdies, five pars and no bogeys on the 6,459-yard Moon Valley CC in Phoenix. "By the end, I started to get very nervous. But now I'm so proud and happy."
