My New Favorite Golf Sunglasses!

I just received a pair of the brand new LiveEyewear Quatro Acadia sunglasses the other day and they are already my absolute favorite pair of sunglasses! I already have several pairs of sport glasses, but these are by far now the most fashionable of the bunch. They are also very lightweight and flatter my face shape (I normally have a hard time finding glasses that look good!). The first thing I noticed when I put them on was how incredible the lenses are (I have the copper lenses). They are great in both bright and low light conditions. With my old glasses (with copper lenses), I normally have to take them off in the parking garage to be able to see what I'm doing. These, however, are tinted just right so that I can still see very clearly, even in the very low light of the parking garage. I am very impressed! Did I mention that I also love the extra styling they gave these glasses? All around, I am very impressed. Finally, a pair of sport sunglasses that are stylish and budget friendly (only $49.95!). I've paid 3 times as much for sport sunglasses that I didn't like as much as these. The LiveEyewear Quatro Acadia is available in black or tortoise with copper or gray lenses.

Goodbye Annika!

It's the end of an era. Annika Sorenstam announced yesterday that she will retire at the end of this season, ending an LPGA Tour career in which she has won 72 tournaments to date and delivered a defining moment in sports history when she teed it up against the men on the PGA Tour. Though she hinted for the past several seasons about retirement, the news had a big effect on the sport all across the country - as well in Utah, where many golfers have been influenced by Sorenstam. The 37-year-old Sorenstam held a press conference Tuesday at Clifton, N.J., where she's competing in the Sybase Classic, and said she wanted to devote more time to her growing business and to start a family. She is engaged to Mike McGee, son of former PGA Tour player Jerry McGee.

Sorenstam dominated women's golf like few others, especially during a five-year period when she won 43 times and finished among the top three nearly 70 percent of the time. But for all her achievements - the only woman to shoot 59, 10 majors and one of six women to complete the career Grand Slam, in addition to being in the World Golf Hall of Fame - she became most famous for testing herself against the men. At the Colonial tournament in 2003, she was the first woman in 58 years to compete on the PGA Tour, though she missed the cut. Tiger Woods called Sorenstam "the greatest female golfer of all time." LPGA player and close friend Natalie Gulbis said life on the tour will be "a little different" without Sorenstam. Sorenstam's final event will be the Dubai Ladies Masters after the LPGA Tour season ends. Before then she's scheduled to make an appearance at the Champions Challenge next month in Lehi, representing her charity, the ANNIKA golf academy. The Associated Press contributed to this story.
