October 15 In Swedish History
1995: Annika Sörenstam wins LPGA World Championship of Women's Golf. It was Sörenstam's breakout year when she won her first LPGA Tour title at the U.S. Women's Open.
She finished at the top of the Money List that year and was the first non-American winner of the Vare Trophy. She became the second player ever to be Player of the Year and Vare Trophy winner the year after being Rookie of the Year.
A win at the 1995 Australian Ladies Masters and two other wins on the Ladies European Tour put her top of the LET (Ladies European Tour) Order of Merit and made her the first player to top both the European and LPGA Tour money lists in the same season.
Her success worldwide resulted in her winning the prestigious Jerringpriset award in Sweden as well as being awarded the Svenska Dagbladet Gold Medal.

The game of golf and its place in people's lives has changed since Sörenstam first held a club and some golf courses have adopted to change faster than others: Reinventing the Game of Golf in Sweden
