Young Golfer’s Big Swing

Morgan Pressel made headlines again this year when she emerged victorious in a match up against Annika Sorenstam at the Solheim Cup, the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s prestigious team event, held in Sweden last week.

Hall of Famer Sorenstam is Sweden’s best female professional golfer. Back in April, 19-year-old Pressel became the youngest person ever to win a major tournament at the Nabisco Championship.

Pressel, who was raised Jewish in Florida, is the niece of world-famous tennis player Aaron Krickstein.
