  12. History
  13. The ANNIKA Foundation partnered with the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and the inaugural ANNIKA Invitational was held January 16 – 19, 2009 in Reunion, Florida.

    In 2011 the ANNIKA Invitational Asia made it´s debut and in 2012 the ANNIKA Invitational Europe were added. The top three players in both Asia and Europe get invited to the tournament in Orlando the following year.

    Annika Sorenstam, when developing her idea of what the ANNIKA Invitational would be, was determined not to make her event "just another tournament." She wanted her invited participants to come away from the ANNIKA Invitational with something more than just a three round aggregate score.

    Her experience had taught her that it takes more than a good golf swing and putting stroke to be a winner on the competitive tours. To have a successful career you need to balance your life, you need life skills and that is the content in workshops that take place after play at an ANNIKA Invitational.
