With all the talk about Vijay Singh's historic season and his quest to win his tenth tour victory of 2004, we seem to have forgotten about the other dominant player in golfdom:
At the Mizuno Classic this weekend, Annika picked up her seventh LPGA win of the year, and her fourth consecutive Mizuno Classic title. The win was also her 55th career win, which ties her for fifth on the all-time LPGA victories list, and puts the icing on her seventh Player of the Year award.
Beyond the pure victories, though, Annika is dominating the event as well; this year's nine stroke victory marks her second consecutive nine stroke win at the Mizuno Classic. As if that weren't enough, there's the style in which she wins: twenty-two under par. Her final-round 65 was partnered with a seemingly mediocre 66 and an amazing first-round 63, giving her a four-stroke lead after the first round from which she never looked back.
Lastly, her 22-under par was just two strokes shy of the tour-record for a 54-hole event - two guesses who set that record in 2003.
