Annika to retire at end of season

Annika Sorenstam has stunned her LPGA Tour peers by announcing that she intends retiring at the end of the present season.
This comes after she achieved her 90th professional win at the weekend in the Michelob Ultra Open.
The Swedish player is 37 and lost her world No 1 ranking to Lorena Ochoa over the past year or so when she was out for a spell with a back injury.
Annika has made more than $11,000,000 in tournament winnings alone and probably as much again in sponsorship deals.
