NCGA.ORG | SPRING 2019 25 A NNIKA SORENSTAM was an overnight sensa- tion when she won the U.S. Women's Open in 1995 for her first LPGA Tour title. Sensing that the next decade of her life would entail spending upwards of 200 days on the road, she wanted a U.S. base to recharge her batteries. Her management company, IMG, suggested Las Vegas, but having grown up a competitive skier in her native Sweden, Sorenstam required a change of seasons, and a little snow wouldn't hurt either. A friend introduced her to Incline Village, and Sorenstam bought a condo in 1995 at Diamond Peak Ski Resort, near the northeast shore of Lake Tahoe, which she paid for that year in tax savings. What a country! She has bought and sold several homes in the same community before finally building her dream house on Lakeshore Boulevard about seven years ago. When the greatest golfer of her generation wants to escape, this is where she goes. Clockwise from top left, the Sorenstams hit the slopes as a family at least twice a week while in Lake Tahoe; Annika hoists the U.S. Women's Open trophy; Mike, Will, Ava and Annika. Sorenstam's signature never goes out of style.
