Winter Vinecki, Annika Sorenstam


Golf Living Legend Annika Sorenstam was on hand at the 2011 Women’s Sports Foundation Gala to present the Annika Inspiration Award to Winter Vinecki, a 12-year old who competes in triathlons to raise awareness for prostate cancer, which claimed the life of her father. The award for individual sport Sportswoman of the Year went to legend in the making Yani Tseng, the world’s current #1 woman golfer.

...you're welcome...you know, I always credit Se Ri Pak and Grace Park with making me a big LPGA fan...and in many ways it's true...but it was Annika vs Karrie that first made me pay attention...we could use a nice rivalry these days...but it has to be a rivalry based on two players winning a lot and fighting over #1...it can't be a contrived or media-based rivalry...or a clash of personalities rivalry...

...anyway, love all the great work Annika has done...wish she'd come back...but I know better...we all do...she's happy in her new phase of life...
