HALL OF FAMER ANNIKA SORENSTAM HAS SURFACED after receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Trump the day after the U.S. Capitol was attacked and occupied, leaving five people dead.

Sorenstam, the new International Golf Federation President, talked to Golf Channel's Steve Burkowski. Here's a bit:

Asked about the timing of the event in the wake of the deadly attack, and with Trump on the verge of getting impeached for a second time because of his instigation, Sorenstam said, "Well, I'm not one to second-guess. It was supposed to be in March 2020, and looking back at it, it's just really about the people who have received it through history. I don't want to spend any energy looking back, I like to spend energy looking forward, continue to open doors, create opportunities for the young girls around the world."​

If golfers qualify for the award -- and apparently they do if recent history is any indication -- then Sorenstam is certainly...

KEVIN NA FIRED A CLOSING 65 to win the 2021 Sony Open in Hawaii by a shot over Chris Kirk and Joaquin Niemann. Na birdied three holes in a row beginning on 13 and also birdied 18 to finish 21 under for the tournament. It was his fifth victory on the PGA Tour.

"I was playing maybe a little bit more aggressive coming down the stretch," Na said, "not worrying so much about second or third, more focused on just that -- winning."

Na is now ranked No. 23 in the world. It's the fourth consecutive season he's won on tour.

The Sony Open in Hawaii was the first full-field event of the calendar year. Defending champion Cameron Smith returned to Oahu and major champion Collin Morikawa and 10 of the top-25 golfers in the world also teed it up at Waialae Country Club.

The next stop is The American Express at the PGA West Stadium Course in La Quinta, California.

I WAS PLEASED TO RECEIVE an email earlier this week from Steve Marantz, who covered the 1955 U.S. Open recently in Episode 17 of his Championship Stories podcast. (In Steve's words, it's a podcast about "famous, infamous and almost famous champions and their moments in history.")

Episodes cover baseball, hockey and basketball, plus three on golf, including this latest one telling the story of Jack Fleck's titanic upset of Ben Hogan at the Olympic Club in June 1955.

"I couldn't resist an episode about Jack Fleck," Steve said in his email. He used my book THE LONGEST SHOT as a primary source.

You can listen above. It's relatively short.

Journalist Steve Marantz is a former researcher/producer for ESPN and an author of four sports books, including his 2019 title, CITIZEN AKOY: Basketball and the Making of a South Sudanese American. He also writes for the Boston...

YESTERDAY'S R&A STATEMENT was brief and blunt:
Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A:

"We had no plans to stage any of our championships at Turnberry and will not do so in the foreseeable future. We will not return until we are convinced that the focus will be on the championship, the players and the course itself and we do not believe that is achievable in the current circumstances."​

Trump acquired the famous Scottish links and resort in 2014.

Turnberry hasn't hosted the Open Championship since 2009. That was when Stewart Cink defeated sentimental favorite Tom Watson in a playoff.​

ON SUNDAY THE PGA OF AMERICA distanced itself from President Donald Trump.

In the above video, PGA of America President Jim Richerson said:
"It has become clear that conducting the PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the PGA of America brand and would put at risk the PGA of America's ability to deliver our many programs and sustain the longevity of our mission. Our board has thus made the decision to exercise our right to terminate the contract to hold the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster. It was a decision made to ensure the PGA of America and the PGA professionals can continue to lead and grow our great game for decades to come."​
"We have had a beautiful partnership with the PGA of America and are incredibly...​

HARRIS ENGLISH WON THE 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions in a sudden-death playoff in beautiful and breezy Maui. English birdied the first playoff hole to defeat Joaquin Niemann after the two players finished at 25 under par.

English shot rounds of 65, 67, 66 and 69 at the Plantation Course at Kapalua. He was emotional about his third PGA Tour victory.

"It feels amazing," English said. "All the hard work that has gone into this, all the highs and lows of golf that it brings over a career and I feel like I've gotten out of my valley and getting back to the tournaments and some of the quality of golf that I know I can play."

This edition of the Sentry Tournament of Champions featured a different field. Because of the reduced number of events in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all qualifiers for the 2020 TOUR Championship were eligible to play in Hawaii.​

From LPGA Communications:

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 6, 2021 – After completing his 11th year as LPGA Commissioner, Mike Whan has notified the LPGA Board of Directors that he has made the difficult decision to transition out of the LPGA in 2021. While no firm date has been set for his departure, this announcement begins the start of a thorough and thoughtful Commissioner succession process.

Whan shared his decision today with LPGA staff, Members and sponsors in the attached letter, including the following messages:

"When I first joined the LPGA, I told the Board it would be a four-year term, giving me time to help the organization achieve its immediate goals. Now, as the longest-serving LPGA Commissioner, I look back on these 11 years with enormous pride and...​

WHAT A SURREAL DAY TO PICK UP a Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House. Hall of Fame golfers Annika Sorenstam and Gary Player are reportedly both supporters of President Trump. Babe Didrickson Zaharias, the other recipient, died in 1956.

From NPR:
The nation — and world — continued to reel, looking for answers after an angry and violent pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol on Wednesday....

Meanwhile, at the White House, the president prepared to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the nation's highest civilian honor – to three professional golfers: Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player and the late Babe Zaharias.

It's the kind of event that Trump, in normal times, would invite...​
