BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) Annika Sorenstam can relate to the run Tiger Woods is on.

Sorenstam once won five straight starts, two tournaments in 2004 and the first three in 2005. She and Nancy Lopez are the only LPGA players to put together a streak that long.

Sorenstam comes to Cedar Ridge Country Club in Broken Arrow off a comeback win at the State Farm Classic last week. Sorenstam shot a 62 to match the LPGA record for the lowest final-round score for a tournament winner.

Counting her one-stroke win off the LPGA Tour at the TPC of Scandinavia in Sweden, Sorenstam has won her last two events.

The past two years, the John Q. Hammons Hotel Classic has been a bit of a springboard for Sorenstam. Her win in 2004 began a run of four victories in six starts. Last year, she won four of her last seven starts, beginning with the Hammons Classic.
