ANNIKA SORENSTAM AND RETIEF GOOSEN both rallied with hot final rounds on Sunday to get their first wins in a while (especially Goosen).

The soon-to-be-retired Sorenstam captured her fourth title of the year with a playoff victory at the Suzhou Taihu Ladies Open in China. Annika shot a seven-under-par 65 to tie Ye Liying and then beat Ye on the second playoff hole.

South African Goosen ended a nearly two-year drought with a come-from-behind win at the $500,000 Iskandar Johor Open on the Asian Tour. Goosen closed with a six-under-par 66 to erase a four-shot deficit.

“It means a lot.” Retief was quoted as saying. “Coming down the stretch, you haven’t won for a while, so it’s nice to finish it off with some good shots and I got the job done. It’s great to win again.”
