Sorenstam to join the Skins Game

Wednesday, September 3, 2003

NORTON, Mass. -- The Skins Game will have the No. 1 player, even though Tiger Woods is taking this year off.

Annika Sorenstam, who became the first woman in 58 years on the PGA Tour by playing at Colonial, will cap off her remarkable season as the first LPGA Tour player to compete in the Skins Game.

Joining her at Trilogy Golf Club in La Quinta, Calif., will be defending champion Mark O'Meara, Fred Couples and Phil Mickelson, who predicted Sorenstam would finish 20th at the Colonial (she missed the cut).

O'Meara won last year with eight skins worth $405,000 of the $1 million purse.
