(Undated) Annika Sorenstam will retire after the season, ending an LPGA Tour career in which she has won 72 tournaments to date and
produced a defining moment when she teed it up against the men on
the PGA Tour.
She was to announce her decision at a news conference Tuesday at
the Sybase Classic in Clifton, N.J., a person familiar with her
plans told The Associated Press.
The 37-year-old Sorenstam has hinted at retirement the past
several seasons, saying she wanted to devote more time to her
growing business and to start a family. She is engaged to Mike
McGee, son of former PGA Tour player Jerry McGee.
