In a week when she made headlines by announcing plans to compete again for the first time in 13 years, LPGA Hall of Fame member Annika Sorenstam spent some quality time with Matt Adams on his show “Fairways of Life” to discuss her decision and what she expects when she tees off at the Gainbridge LPGA at Lake Nona on February 25.
“I’ve just been playing a little bit of golf in the last year,” the 10-time major champion said. “Our son has been getting into it and with COVID such a big part of our lives now, we’ve been limited in what we can do, so golf has become a big part of our lives. We have been able to go out and have fun and play together.
“I wasn’t looking to play, that’s not what I do now, I’m a full-time mom,” Sorenstam said. “But just looking to play in some events later in the summer (most notably the U.S. Senior Women’s Open for which the recently turned 50-year-old is now eligible), you need some tournament rounds. And when I played at Diamond Resorts (Tournament of Champions, in the celebrity division) I was a little rusty.”
Sorenstam covered that and other topics in a wide-ranging interview that can be seen here:
