Annika Honored By Swedens King

STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Seated next to King Carl XVI Gustaf, Annika Sorenstam was honored as Sweden's Female Athlete of the Year for 2003.
The golfer on Monday won the Jerring prize, one of the most prestigious sports awards in Sweden. She won six tournaments in 2003 and became the first woman in 58 years to play on the men's PGA Tour.
'I want to win all four majors this year,' she told the Expressen newspaper.
'Everything I do this season revolves around that.'

Last month, Sorenstam was voted The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year. She also became the 100th person inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
