1. Michelle Wie might not have the mental fortitude to win.
"When [Michelle Wie] came out there was a lot of buzz," said Sorenstam. "She probably has one of the best golf swings in the game today. I would say she has not performed to her expectations or her potential.
"Her focus should be more on the golf. She's very distracted with school, doesn't really play as much full time as I thought she would...Sometimes you wonder if she's mentally strong enough to finish at the top. She has a few victories, but has not really been able to really breakthrough."
2. Lexi Thompson is too young to qualify for the LPGA Tour.
"I'm going to be honest, I was a little surprised," said Sorenstam, when asked about the waiver the LPGA Tour granted Thompson so she could attend Q school this summer. "We have the rules, 18 years old, and it was put there for a reason. So I was surprised that it was changed.
"There is no need to hurry out here. It can be very competitive and very, very lonely. It's physically taxing on you. You have to be ready for this challenge."
3. Not missing the game of golf.
"I competed for so many years on such a high level," said Sorenstam. "24/7, that's what I did. That was my love, and I loved it. But once I made a decision to step away, I stepped away. I practice very little; I play very little. I don't have any plans of coming back by any means."
