Annika Sörenstam Becomes First Woman to Card 59

On this day in 2001, Annika Sörenstam from Sweden became the first woman to card a 59 in a competition round.

She pulled off the feat in the final round of the LPGA Tour’s Standard Register Ping at Moon Valley Country Club. Her round, which earned her the title, included 13 birdies, five pars, and, sadly, a missed 10-footer on the final green which would’ve given her a 58.
