Female in PGA Tour

Annika Sorenstam made history on the golf course Thursday. The first woman to compete on the men's tour in 58 years didn't just play, she excelled.

Before a cheering gallery and hundreds of photographers, Sorenstam shot a one over par, 71. That score proved better than twenty of the men who particpated at the Colonial Tournament in Fort Worth, Texas.

The number one female player in the world even hit the ball farther off the first tee than her two male playing partners. If she plays well on Friday, Sorenstam stands a good chance of making the cut and qualifying to play in the final two rounds of the Colonial this weekend.
