Annika Sorenstam wins in Dubai
Annika Sorenstam may have had a poor season by her standards - she lost her status as world No 1 and was winless throughout the campaign on the LPGA Tour - but she finished the year in style by retaining her Dubai Ladies Masters title at the Emirates Golf Club yesterday.
Her triumph was one half of a Swedish double, as the £5,236 pocketed by Sophie Gustafson, who finished in a share of 15th, was enough to overhaul Germany's Bettina Hauert at the top of the Ladies European Tour moneylist, making Gustafson the European No 1 for the second time in her entertaining career.
Sorenstam, who announced before the tournament that she was determined to regain her world No 1 ranking from Lorena Ochoa after overcoming a troublesome neck injury, set a winning mark of 10 under par overall, following a final-round 70.
