Quite simply one of the greatest players in history, Sorenstam won the AIG Women's Open in 2003, the sixth of her 10 major titles in a glittering career yielding 72 LPGA Tour victories.
Her AIGWO breakthrough had been a long time coming. She was the runner-up in 1994, 1995 and 1999 before edging out Se Ri Pak by a single shot to claim a popular win at Royal Lytham & St Annes.
The hard-earned triumph completed a career Grand Slam for Sorenstam, whose first majors came courtesy of back-to-back victories at the U.S. Women's Open in 1995 and 1996.
She went on to add to her major tally in every year from 2001 to 2006, claiming a trio of Kraft Nabisco Championship wins, three successive LPGA Championship victories and a third U.S. Women's Open crown in addition to her 2003 AIG Women's Open success.
A World Golf Hall of Famer and the LPGA Tour's Player of the Year on a remarkable eight occasions, Sorenstam retired from playing in 2008 but made a celebrated return in 2021 and won the U.S. Senior Women's Open by eight shots, a success that earned her a place in the following year's U.S. Women's Open.
