ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Annika Sorenstam and Mike McGee were married Saturday, four weeks after the Swedish golf star ended her Hall of Fame career.

About 125 guests attended the afternoon ceremony and evening reception at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. McGee, the son of former PGA Tour player Jerry McGee, has served as managing director for her business brand since December 2006.

Travis Wilhelm, the minister at Christian Campus House at Trine University in Angola, Ind., officiated the ceremony. Swedish friend Maria Bertilskold was the maid of honor, and Stan McCamon of East Palestine, Ohio, was McGee's best man.

Sorenstam retired last month after winning 72 times on the LPGA Tour.

Before heading off on a honeymoon ski trip, Sorenstam will host the Annika Invitational, an American Junior Golf Association event for 60 top females around the world at the Ginn Reunion Resort, where she has her academy.

Sorenstam also will appear at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, then be honored at the "Annika Celebration" Feb. 1-3 at Ginn Reunion Resort, which will feature a skins game among Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa, Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis.
