Annika to Open Season at Season-Opener


2006 SBS OpenHONOLULU -- Annika Sorenstam will begin the year at the LPGA Tour's season-opening SBS Open, tournament officials said Wednesday.
It will be the first Hawaiian appearance in years for the 69-time winner.
The Swedish star recently said she planned to enter about 18 to 20 tournaments.
She played in only 13 events last year because of neck and back injuries and had one of the worst seasons of her career, going winless for the first time since 1994.
Paula Creamer will attempt to defend her title at Turtle Bay. The tournament runs Feb. 14-16.
