Pay it forward: Annika Sorenstam passing along advice to younger players

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Danielle Kang’s success since working with Butch Harmon has been well documented. But her success since working with Annika Sorenstam? Well, Sunday could tell the tale.

Thursday, Kang surged to the lead at the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions with an opening-round 64. Also in the field this week, in the celebrity division, is Sorenstam, the 72-time LPGA Tour winner and World Golf Hall of Fame member. Sorenstam, who sits seventh among the celebrities after Round 1, revealed she has been working with the five-time LPGA winner.

“We've had some conversations over the phone and just kind of get her mentally ready,” said Sorenstam, who was in the group behind Kang on Thursday.
