Sorenstam Wins ADT Golf Championship in Florida

Swedish golfer Annika Sorenstam has closed out another spectacular year with her 10th tournament victory, winning the ADT Championship in West Palm Beach, Florida by two shots.

Sorenstam held off a spirited charge from fellow-Swede Liselotte Neumann Sunday, as she sank a key four-meter birdie putt on the 16th hole to give her the cushion she needed for the win. Sorenstam fired a three-under-par final round of 69 to finish the tournament with a six-under total of 282.

Neumann three-putted from off the green on the final hole while going for a birdie to force a playoff. She finished the day at two-under-par 70. Michele Redman of the United States and South Korea's Soo-yun Kang each carded a 69 and tied for second place with totals of 284.

Sorenstam is the first player to successfully defend her title in the LPGA's version of a Tour Championship. She has now won the event four times.
