Annika Sorenstam documentary to premiere Tuesday

“Becoming ANNIKA,” the new Annika Sorenstam documentary "produced by NBC Sports in conjunction with the USGA" will premiere May 10 at 9:00pm ET on Golf Channel, according to Beth Ann Nichols of GOLFWEEK. The film “focuses on what built Sorenstam the champion," of course, but also on "how she was received by her peers.” Actress Hilary Swank narrates and World Gold HOFers Laura Davies, Juli Inkster and Nancy Lopez offer insight along with two-time major winner Dottie Pepper, former caddie Terry McNamara, USGA CEO Mike Whan and longtime journalist Ron Sirak, who "covered Sorenstam’s LPGA career more thoroughly than anyone.” Director Adrienne Gallagher “began production of the film” at the ’21 U.S. Senior Women’s Open, won by Sorenstam. Gallagher "worked with an all-female production crew” for the film and believes that it "made a difference in the way Sorenstam opened up about her divorce to David Esch." “Becoming ANNIKA” will "also be shown on NBC" on Sunday, June 5, ahead of final round coverage of the U.S. Women’s Open (, 5/7).
