Sorenstam Misses Cutline, Distance Too Far

One of the best golfers among the females, Annika Sorenstam (33, Sweden) failed to qualify for the final round of the U.S. PGA Tour.

Sorenstam shot a 4-over 74 in the second round of an epoch-making ‘men versus woman’ event (total prize of 5 million) at the Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas on May 24 and missed the cut by four shots. She was 5-over 145. The cutline was 1-over 141.

“I disappointed many people who supported me. The course was not difficult, but I was so, so nervous,” said Sorenstam crying in the middle of the interview which was held right after the game.

“I will never forget the PFA tour, but now I will get back to where I belong, the LPGA” she said. Sorenstam will participate in the U.S LPGA Tour Kellogg-Keebler Classic which will start from May 30.
