Sorenstam Laps Field at Michelob ULTRA Open

THOSE TIRE TRACKS up the backs of LPGA Tour players at the Michelob ULTRA Open belonged to Annika Sorenstram.

Annika notched her third win of the season with a truly dominating performance. Rounds of 64, 66, 69 and 66 put Sorenstam at 19 under for a seven-shot victory over four players.

As crazed hoopster analyst Dick Vitale might say, “She’s back, baby!” With a vengeance.

Along with everyone else, Lorena Ochoa was choking on Sorenstam’s fumes, 12 shots back after a respectable but distant seven-under finish.

As my golf blogging friend Mulligan Stu of Waggle Room points out, it’s turning into a three-person tour. Ochoa, Sorenstam and Creamer have cleaned up with 10 victories in the first 12 events.

Not so fast, my friend. She just stated tonight, "I'm retiring after the end of this season, baby!"

A little surprising, but she's been hinting at it for a while now.

How about that? Just when she's back on a roll. Good time to go out, I guess.
