Go Annika

After months of hoopla, Annika Sorenstam teed off today against the men at the PGA Colonial. She had a 9:58am EST tee time at the 10th hole, partnered with Dean Wilson (of Kaneohe, HI) and Aaron Barber. The USA Network will show every shot Annika makes today.Annika’s made a definite impression after the first nine holes, and has shown why she’s the LPGA’s #1 player: 7 of 7 fairways, 7 of 9 greens in regulation and 13 putts, leaving her at minus one and on the second page of the leader board.

More impressive is that she accomplished this under enormous pressure from worldwide media.

Despite grumbling from some PGA members, this is great for golf. Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia are supporters. I wonder what Hawaii’s Michelle Wie thinks about it?
