LPGA Tour Report Cards


Birdies, pars and bogeys fill the charts of the LPGA and one ace! Here are a few:

ANNIKA SORENSTAM - She did everything she was supposed to do ' and so much more 11 wins (13 worldwide), scoring average which set an LPGA record, a winning percentage that approached 50 percent of every tournament she entered. Her year bordered on greatness, approaching the best single season in the LPGA ever.
SE RI PAK - Five tournament wins in any other season would be remarkable, but of course there was the Sorenstam factor. Pak, though, enjoyed a great season that included yet another major ' the McDonalds LPGA Championship.
JULI INKSTER ' Shes 42 years old, but shes still winning. Victories this year included the U.S. Womens Open and the Chick-Fil-A, plus a runner-up finish. In the process, she won more than $1 million for the second time in her career.
MI HYUN KIM ' Won twice in the second half of the year, where she proved herself a formidable foe despite her diminutive stature.
GRACE PARK ' Though she didnt win until the final month, appears set to have a very long and fruitful career.
LAURA DIAZ ' Came into her own with a couple of early-season wins, then held on the second half to finish a very solid season. Number 2 American on the money list behind Inkster.
ROSIE JONES ' Shes been around a long time, shes 43 years old, but nine top-10 finishes proves she still has a lot of game.
KARRIE WEBB ' Its difficult to give a woman who earned over $1 million a bogey, but Webb is a victim of her own past successes. She got caught in a swing change this year and never did really adapt. Still won twice, including the Weetabix British Open.
LAURA DAVIES ' Englishwoman won just $344,242 and had untold problems both with her driver and her putter.
