Three-time champion Sorenstam to play US Women’s Open after 14 years

Three-time champion Annika Sorenstam is set to make her first US Women’s Open appearance since 2008 at this summer’s major championship.

 
The 51-year-old Swede earned her place by winning the 2021 US Senior Women’s Open and has filed an entry.

 
The major will take place from 2-5 June at Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club in North Carolina.

 
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to play in a US Women’s Open again,” Sorenstam said.

 
“I really never thought I would play in another one, but everything just sort of fell into place.

” 
Sorenstam won back-to-back US Open titles at Pine Needles in 1995 and 1996.

 
“Teeing it up in the greatest championship in women’s golf, at a venue that has so many incredible memories for me, and to be able to do so with my family means a lot to us,” she added.
