Hole 18: 427 yards, par-4
Make it 7-for-7 for Sorenstam in fairways hit on her first nine (driver to 241 yards). She got another good bounce on her 192-yard approach shot, which bounced out of the right rough onto the green. Her birdie putt from 30 feet rolled just to the left of the hole, and she sank the comebacker for PAR.

This was her second, and final, par-5 of the day. She found the fairway again off the tee with driver (266 yards), and layed up with her second shot (6-iron).

Hole 3: 476 yards, par-4
On the first hole of the "Horrible Horseshoe" -- the hardest three-hole stretch on the course -- Sorenstam hit another fairway off the tee (driver, 257 yards). Her approach shot from about 210 yards found the green -- 12 feet from the hole. Her birdie putt was short, and she sank her second putt for PAR.

Hole 4: 246 yards, par-3

Hole 5: 470 yards, par-4
Sorenstam missed her first fairway of the round, hitting her tee shot into the left rough on this dogleg-right (driver, 271 yards).

Hole 6: 393 yards, par-4
After her first bogey, Sorenstam went back to work, hitting another fairway off the tee (4-wood, 221 yards).
