I’m glad to see Annika Sorenstam is finally getting her due. Yesterday, on the Best Damn Sports Show three of the four panelists agreed that she is the most dominant player in sports today, and I think all agreed she should give the men’s tour another try. Today, Seth Davis of SI says that Annika should win the Sports Illustrated Sports Person of the Year award, already. And, yes, we here at The Golf Blog have corrected our errors of the past and are writing more about Annika. See here, here, and here.

Some staggering stats: Annika’s won 6 of her last 7 starts, including a 10-stroke win last weekend. She’s won 17 of her last 35 tournaments after she played the Colonial tournament with the men, and 37 times since 2001. She has 60 LPGA career victories, 8 majors (5 of the last 8, too). (If you’re wondering, Tiger’s got 43 PGA victories, 9 majors.)
