What a treat to watch Annika Sorenstam play against the best men in the world of golf. Thousands packed the gallery, millions watched on television, every golfer in America knew what was happening. She presented a gift to our daughters and granddaughters. She not only scored better than 99 percent of the men who play golf could have, she handled the pressure with grace and dignity. Golf seems more civilized today than it did just a month ago when a guy in his sixties called "Hootey" was defending his "men's only" Augusta National Country Club.
Bye-bye Hootie, hello Annika. One will soon be forgotten as an asterisk, the other will be remembered as the woman who showed men how to act under pressure.
