Annika and Mike McGee wedding

at Orlando, Florida yesterday

Annika Sorenstam and her boyfriend of three years, Mike McGee, were married on Saturday near their home in Orlando, Florida.
The 125 guests attended an afternoon ceremony and evening reception at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. Travis Wilhelm, minister at Christian Campus House at Trine University in Angola, Indiana, officiated at the ceremony.
Sorenstam’s maid of honour was her best friend from Stockholm, Maria Bertilskold. McGee’s best man was Stan McCamon from East Palestine, Ohio.
McGee, the son of former US PGA Tour and Champions Tour player Jerry McGee, has served as Managing Director for the ANNIKA brand of businesses since December 2006, when he relocated to Orlando.
The couple will be busy over the next two weeks, prior to their honeymoon ski trip. Sorenstam will be hosting the first major initiative of her foundation, the ANNIKA Invitational, an American Junior Golf Association event featuring 60 of the top female juniors from around the world.
The event will be held at her academy at the Ginn Reunion Resort next weekend. Sorenstam will then appear at the US PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando and will be honoured at the ANNIKA Celebration Feb. 1-3 at Ginn Reunion Resort.
The ANNIKA Celebration will feature a skins game between Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa, Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis.
Annika may have retired ... but she is not putting her feet up, quite yet!
