Sorenstam ends career at Dubai Masters

9:06 am on 15 December 2008

Swedish golfer Annika Sorenstam has played her last match and finished in a tie for seventh in the Dubai Ladies Masters.

Sorenstam, 38, won 90 titles, including 10 majors, in a career spanning 15 years.

She publicly announced in May she would quit the game at the end of this season.

The former world number one was greeted at the 18th on Sunday by a huge banner saying "Dubai salutes Annika Sorenstam".

She plans to pursue business interests, including her golf academy in Florida, charitable foundation and course design projects.
