Annika Sorenstam has rough 3rd Round at Gainbridge LPGA Tournament

50-year-old Annika Sorenstam’s return to golf took a hit yesterday at the Gainbridge LPGA in Orlando, Florida.

Battling the wind at Boca Rio Golf Club, she dropped out of contention.

Sorenstam, playing for the first time in more than 12 years after retiring, had no expectations and no excuses. She kept leaving herself in bad spots around the green and finished with a 79. That put her in last place by four shots, 22 shots behind Korda.

The Swede, who is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame,  was making a one-time appearance because the tournament was brought to her home course, and she was happy enough to make the cut to be able to play the weekend.

Her troubles started with a bogey on the par-5 15th, the start of five bogeys in an eight-hole stretch.
