Sorenstam Completes Golfing Career Grand Slam, Wins Women's British Open - 2003-08-03

Swedish golfer Annika Sorenstam beat Se Ri Pak of South Korea by one stroke Sunday to win the Women's British Open in Lytham St. Annes England and complete a career Grand Slam.

It was also the second major title of 2003 for the Swedish star, who in May became the first woman in 58 years to play on the PGA Tour.

Sorenstam carded a 2-under-par 70 in her final round to complete the tournament with a 10-under total of 278. It is the first time she has won the event, after finishing second in 1994, 1995 and 1999.

Pak, the 2001 champion, helped Sorenstam with a bogey on the final hole after hitting her tee shot into a bunker. Pak fired a final round 72 to put her a 9-under par for the tournament. Defending champion Karrie Webb of Australia tied South Korea's Grace Park for third place with totals of 8-under, 280.
