Coming Up

Annika Sorenstam (left) has won 24 of the 74 LPGA stroke-play
tournaments she has entered since the start of the 2000 season,
but her dominance is deceptive. When those events are ranked by
the field's stroke average, a pattern emerges: The lower the
average--which means the easier the course--the more Sorenstam
wins. This doesn't bode well for her at the Colonial, which will
be one of the toughest courses she has played.

1-25 78.32 to 73.63 4
26-50 73.57 to 72.40 8
51-74 72.32 to 70.11 12
