World number one women's golfer Annika Sorenstam has been knocked out of the women's World Match play golf competition in Gladstone, New Jersey.

One week after failing in her bid to win her third major tournament this year, Sorenstam lost her quarterfinal to Candie Kung of Taiwan, one up.

In the semifinals, Kung takes on Colombia's Marisa Baena, a 2-and-1 (two holes ahead and one hole to play) over Australian Karrie Webb.

The other semifinal has South Korea's Meena Lee taking on American Wendy Ward. Lee scored a one-up win over American Pat Hurst. Ward defeated Sophie Gustafson of Sweden 2-and-1 in their quarterfinal match.

The semifinals are set for Sunday morning with an 18-hole championship match in the afternoon. The winner takes home $180,000.
