These include major championships, ANNIKA Foundation junior tournaments, corporate outings and elsewhere.

“We’re excited by the possibilities of this new partnership with Golfing World and our long-time associates at IMG,” says Annika, a 2003 World Golf Hall of Fame inductee. “Despite stepping away from competitive golf in 2008, my schedule is even more hectic nowadays.

We look forward to sharing the content across our websites as well.”
