Annika Sorenstam put her name in the record books again Sunday and needed to do just that to win the Standard Register Ping at Phoenix.
Two days after becoming the first player to shoot 59 in an LPGA tournament, Sorenstam set the 72-hole scoring mark and won a duel with South Korea's Se Ri Pak for her second title in as many events.
"That's a lot of records this week," Sorenstam said. "I can't absorb that. It's incredible. But I wasn't really looking to beat records today--I was focused on Se Ri."
Pak, who shot a 67 to reach 25-under 263, trailed by nine shots after the second round. She tied for the lead with a birdie at the 15th but bogeyed the 16th and trailed Sorenstam the rest of the day. She finished two shots back.
Sorenstam tapped in for par at the 18th hole to finish a four-under-par 68 and reach 27-under 261, a stroke better than the 72-hole mark set by Karrie Webb at the 1999 Australian Ladies Masters.
Hale Irwin became the Senior PGA Tour's career victory leader by winning the Siebel Classic at San Jose for his 30th title on the circuit.
