HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. - Annika Sorenstam still gets the largest contingent of burly
tactical force cops at the LPGA Championship. They\'re waiting for her when she
finishes any round, ready to surround the woman, who served as the Tour\'s lifeline
long before any of the kids came along, and whisk her away from any trouble.

What that trouble could be is anybody\'s guess. Maybe a 6-year-old will lunge over
and touch Annika with sticky hands?

\"What are all these cops suddenly here for?\" a fan asked from behind the ropes
surrounding the scorer\'s tent. \"One, two, three, four, five. Is the President here
or something?\"

Sorenstam doesn\'t need the large show of force anymore. The jostle to get near
Michelle Wie far out measures any current Annika fever. In truth, the other young
would-be celebs of the LPGA Tour - Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel and the absent
Natalie Gulbis - trigger much more chaos from beyond the ropes these days (and that
is women\'s golf chaos, not European soccer chaos by a million stretches).

None of this matters though. Sorenstam gets the burly band as a sign of respect.
She\'s big on that kind of thing. Don\'t let her quiet cool throughout all these years
fool you. This is one of the proudest, most stubborn athletes in the world.
