One of the most successful female golfers of all-time, the Swedish sensation was a force on the course during her marvellous career.
Turning 46 today, Sorenstam has a laundry list of achievements to her name, most notably as the winningest female golfer ever with 90 international tournament victories as a professional.
Among those, 72 were official LPGA tournaments, including 10 majors and 18 international tournaments.
The $22 million she earned for her career also tops the LPGA’s money list.
She earned the Player of the Year award a record eight times, while also having the distinction of being the only female golfer to shoot 59 in a competition.
As if all that wasn’t enough, Sorenstam became the first woman to play in a PGA Tour event since 1945 when she competed at the Bank of American Colonial in 2003.
