RSS

SHES NOT ALONE: Annika Sorenstam became the first player to successfully defend the Kraft Nabisco Championship since it became a major. But she is not the only player to do so in the history of the event. Prior to gaining major status, Sandra Post recorded back-to-back victories in 1978 and 79.
 
NO RABBITS HERE: Laura Davies wasnt able to pull a rabbit out of her hat this Easter Sunday. After recording rounds of 75-75-69-70, she finished tied at 1-over 289. Davies will have to wait another year to complete the career grand slam. Fortunately she has three more opportunities this season to earn the final two points she needs to qualify for the Hall-of-Fame.
 
BACK TO SCHOOL: The Wongluekiet twins head back to school in Bradenton, Fla., Monday. Aree Wongluekiet made the best showing this year with her 3-over 291; Naree finished 11-over 299.
 
TWICE THE HONOR: Lorena Ochoa impressed all with her ability to play in championship conditions. Ochoa was low amateur for the second year in a row after finishing with rounds of 75-69-71-70 to finish tied at 3-under 285.
 
GO LOW: Akhiko Fukushima and Carin Koch recorded low rounds of the tournament with their final rounds of 6-under-per 66. On her way to 6-under Sunday, Fukushima recorded 31 on the back nine for the second day in a row.
