Sorenstam Takes Command Early, Wins Third Womenís Open

Newport, R.I. Ė In the end, the proverbial favorite won.

It took 90 holes of gritty golf, but Annika Sorenstam prevailed with her third Womenís Open victory Monday at Newport Country Club. What the 37-year-old Pat Hurst could not do in the 18-hole playoff, Sorenstam did. Thatís why Sorenstam won, shooting 1-under 70 to Hurstís 3-over 74.

It was the 10th playoff in Womenís Open history, the last occurring at Pumpkin Ridge in 2003 when Hilary Lunke defeated Kelly Robbins and Angela Stanford. Hurst fell to 0-4 in career playoffs, ironically losing to Sorenstam in three of them. Monday marked the most lopsided defeat in a Womenís Open playoff dating to 1956 when Kathy Cornelius beat amateur Barbara McIntire by seven strokes.
