LPGA player Annika Sorenstam has accepted an invitation to play in the Colonial in Ft. Worth. She will be the first woman to play in a PGA tournament since Babe Didrikson Zaharias played in the Los Angeles Open in 1945.
Sorenstam dominates the LPGA tour, having won 13 times this year. She announced last autumn that she would be interested in playing against the men in the PGA.
Tiger Woods said, "I think it's great she's playing," but cautioned that it may be detrimental to women advancing in the game if Sorenstam does not do well. Sorenstam will play from the men's tees.
