Annika Sorenstam at the Colonial

Never has a golfer been under so much pressure at the first tee box of a tournament. Usually it's the later holes that induce the yips, but usually women don't play on the PGA Tour with television broadcasting hole-by-hole coverage of their rounds. On May 22, at the Colonial, Annika Sorenstam became the first woman in 58 years to tee it up with the boys, and she did quite well, finishing the first round at 1-over before missing the cut by four shots. Still, she was the tournament's biggest winner.
