Sorenstampede Se Ri Pak has become such a presence on the women's tour that the QUIET PLEASE signs at last week's JAL Big Apple Classic in New Rochelle, N.Y., included a message in Korean: "Please don't move before players hit shots." So popular is Pak that one could almost forget a certain Swede who ruled the tour back in 1997. "Se Ri has gotten a lot of attention and she deserved it, but I can play, too," said Annika Sorenstam on Sunday evening. "I proved it here." She proved it by winning the Big Apple by eight shots over Joan Pitcock and by at least 10 over everyone else, including Pak, who was 23 back. In the process Sorenstam tied Pak for the tour lead in wins, with three, grabbed the top spot on the money list and notched her 15th career win, putting her halfway to the Hall of Fame. Does anyone know how to say, "Outta my way at the du Maurier" in Swedish?
