Samsung World Championships

Well, this is the week Michelle Wie will make her debut as a proette at the Samsung World Championship at Bighorn Golf Club, Palm Desert, California. Let’s see how she performs after all the fuzz about her turning pro and her big sponsorship deals with Nike and Sony. Wie is playing via a sponsor exemption at the event.

But it is also an event to look out for Annika Sorenstam, should she win this tournament it would be her fifth win at one event, something that even she hasn’t accomplished yet. Sorenstam won the Samsung World Championship in 1995, 1996, 2002 and 2004. A win this week would tie her with the legendary Mickey Wright for most all-time at a single event. Wright won the Sea Island Open five times (1957, 1958, 1960, 1961, 1963) and is also one spot and 19 victories ahead of Sorenstam on the all-time wins list with 82-career victories.
