Engaged Annika Returns to Defend Title

State Farm Classic Logo 2007SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Annika Sorenstam will make her first start since the Women's British Open three weeks ago, appearing to defend her title at the State Farm Classic days after announcing her wedding engagement.
Unfortunately for golf fans, No. 1 Lorena Ochoa will begin her one-month vacation from the LPGA Tour this week after claiming her third straight win on Sunday at the Safeway Classic.
Sorenstam closed with a 10-under 62 in the final round last year -- tying a course record -- to claim her 69th LPGA Tour victory. It was also her last win.
The GOLF CHANNEL will have coverage of all four rounds beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET each day.
Next week's event is the LPGA NW Arkansas Championship, a new tournament on the schedule.
