Annika Sorenstam

ended her Hall of Fame career with an 8-foot birdie on the 18th hole of the Dubai Ladies Masters yesterday, completing a 1-under 71 that left her in seventh place, six shots behind winner

Anja Monke.

Sorenstam, who is retiring to focus on her family and business interests, led the tournament after the second round but shot a 75 on Saturday that torpedoed her hopes for a third straight title at the season-ending tournament on the Ladies European Tour.
