Annika Sorenstam

Annika Sorenstam at the AIG Women

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.
