Although it was six months later, Pressel finally received the answer she had been longing for when LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens announced Dec. 19 that Pressel won't have to wait until she turns 18 to become a full member of the tour.

The best two women golfers shared the spoils Sunday in the season-ending LPGA Tour Championship, where Webb capped off a year of big wins with a 4-under 68 on tough, blustery Trump International for a two-stroke victory over Sorenstam.
The tournament seemed out of reach, and so did her goal of setting the LPGA record for lowest scoring average.
All of them were big -- a U.S. Open by eight strokes, the LPGA Championship by three strokes to make her the youngest to win the career Grand Slam, and the Tyco/ADT Championship with a score that belied how difficult the conditions were.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Annika Sorenstam had everything going her way Saturday in the LPGA Tour Championship -- a one-stroke lead over Karrie Webb, the LPGA scoring record in sight.
Sorenstam went from a one-stroke lead to a five-stroke deficit over the final six holes, most of that brought on by her shocking finish at Trump International -- two balls in the water for a triple bogey on the 18th hole.
Along with falling even farther behind, that might have been the end of Sorenstam's quest to finish the season with the lowest scoring average in LPGA history.
