Annika Sorenstam’s leading the Safeway Invitational at -16. Michelle Wie is way back at -7. What’s interesting about the LPGA is that Michelle, who is the most promising golfer out there, has perhaps the greatest women’s golfer ever to contend with. Annika is dominating her tour in a way that Tiger did in 2000. But when Tiger first came out on the PGA Tour, Greg Norman was the world’s No.1 — the Shark was in no way the same dominating force as Annika is today on the LPGA tour.

Nicklaus had Palmer (Player, and later Trevino, Watson and others to contend with). When he first came out, Tiger really had no one big contender to deal with (although maybe that’s changing). I think it’s much better when there’s a big rival for the world’s No. 1. Would have been nice if Tiger came out when Nicklaus was still in his relative prime. The situation with Michelle and Annika may turn out to be that way. I hope so.
