Sorenstam scored 75 in return, and the sight of only 50-year-old hitting and striding into the fairway made some young players feel in awe.
“I think at this point in her career, her role in the game has always been an inspiring girl. I played with her at Diamond Resorts and I can tell you that she is still as competitive as it was 20 years ago.
“You can see her short game; the putt is still going on. That is her pulse, it will always shine. She said that she may not have played as far or straight as before, but in the end every day, I want to say it again: She is my superhero. She and Lorena may be the reason why I am here. It is incredible to be able to share this with them (especially with her).”
Sorenstam (Sorenstam) quit golf in 2008 and started his own family. Under the watchful eyes of her children Will and Ava, the 50-year-old has achieved more than three strokes in her hometown class and admitted that she will need to be more aggressive.
Although her return to the track made her competitors feel uneasy, but since she left, adapting to the changes experienced by the Tour de France is the biggest shock.
“Fortunately, I can play with Anna (Nordqvist) on Monday and Danielle (Kang) on Tuesday. Although there are some differences, you are used to these new rules. When I have finalized these new rules, Go all out, I’m not here.”
However, Sorenstam said next week that she will return to the lives of his wife and mother.
“Similarly, if it’s not Lake Nona, [being the host site] I can not play. This is not a comeback. This is a look. I am very excited about this. “
Ko said: “It was great to see Annika and to be with her. It was so cool to see her hit a few shots.” “I have watched her on TV and played with her last Saturday And playing behind her, I think it’s pretty cool.
“I hope this has brought us a lot of attention and hype in the tour and women’s golf competitions. I’m sure it’s not easy for her to come back, especially after retiring for so long, but I think it’s a very important one. Disclaimer. Yes, it’s absolutely cool for me to be in the same field as the goat I think.”
