Will Annika watch?

Annika Sorenstam hasn't missed a major championship since 1999 and played in 36 straight before retiring. Is she watching the Kraft Nabisco Championship, which she won three times?

"I think I will," she told the St. Petersburg Times. "It's a major. Maybe not the first two days, but the weekend for sure."

Sorenstam is pregnant and busy. "Obviously the foundation takes a lot of time. I just got back from Korea this weekend after a course visit. Time flies. I spend a lot of time at the academy as well. I played there (Wednesday) with some guests. It's weird because this week is our first major (LPGA), and it hasn't even crossed my mind. I turned on the Golf Channel (on Wednesday night) and I was like, 'Oh, yeah.' Then (Thursday) morning I read about it in the paper and you'd think I would be a little antsy, but I've been too busy."
