WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Annika Sorenstam's storied LPGA Tour career is over. The 72-time tour winner shot a 3-over par 75 on Friday at the ADT Championship, leaving her 5 over through two rounds of the LPGA's season-ending event. Only 16 players advanced to the third round in the 32-woman event, and Sorenstam finished two shots out of that mix.
She announced six months ago she was leaving the tour at year's end to pursue business interests, get married and start a family. Sorenstam is still is No. 2 in the world rankings, but at 38 she says it's time for new challenges.
