Annika Sorenstam

Sorenstam was the No. 1 women's golfer in the world when she accepted an invitation to play in the PGA Tour's Bank of America Colonial tournament in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2003. She became the first woman to play in a PGA event since Babe Didrickson Zaharias qualified for the Los Angeles Open in 1945.

After shooting a one-over-par 71 in the first round, Sorenstam shot four over in the second, missing the cut. "I gave it all," she said. "I tried. I gave everything I had."
