LPGA TOUR

Samsung World Championship

When: Thursday-Sunday

Course: Bighorn Golf Club, Canyons Course (6,462 yards, par 72)

Purse: $875,000 ($218,750 to winner)

TV: Golf (4:30-7 p.m. Thursday; 3:30-6 p.m. Friday) and NBC-18 (2-4 p.m. Saturday; 4-6 p.m. Sunday)

Last year: Annika Sorenstam won the elite tournament for the fifth time to tie Mickey Wright's tour record for victories in an event, beating Paula Creamer by eight strokes. Sorenstam also clinched the money title and the LPGA Player of the Year award. Michelle Wie, making her pro debut, was disqualified following the final round for signing an incorrect scorecard after the third round, an error caused by an improper penalty drop. She would have finished fourth, 10 strokes back.

Notes: Sorenstam also won in 1995, '96, '02 and '04. In 2002, she finished a tournament-record 22 under in a six-stroke victory at Hiddenbrooke. The Swedish star, also a five-timer winner in the Mizuno Classic, has three LPGA Tour victories this year to push her career total to 69. She turned 36 on Monday. ... Wie is making her eighth and final LPGA Tour start of the year. Winless in 32 career LPGA Tour appearances, she's coming off last-place finishes in two men's events -- the European tour's European Masters and the PGA Tour's 84 Lumber Classic. She turns 17 today.
