Women's Open Final Notes

WomenOpen06.gifDave Anderson writes about Annika moving into a new category of greatness with this win.
If some people fail to appreciate Sorenstam's mastery, Woods apparently is not among them. "He's been calling me every day and cheering me on, which has been really sweet of him," Sorenstam said after defeating Pat Hurst by four strokes with a one-under-par 70 in yesterday's 18-hole playoff at the sunny and virtually windless Newport Country Club. "I think he has been on vacation, and for him to tune into women's golf I think says a lot."
Yeah, a lot about the PGA Tour.

Meanwhile this AP notes column has two fun anecdotes about Pat Hurst having trouble finding a place to eat Sunday night and a question she asked Annika during the playoff.
