— The Annika Intercollegiate, a new college golf tournament co-founded by the Annika Foundation and Golfweek, will be held Sept. 27-30, 2014 at Reunion Resort near Orlando, Fla.

The 54-hole, stroke-play event will take place on Reunion’s Watson Course and feature 12 teams from the top Division I women’s programs.

Also scheduled for the tournament weekend is a gala reception during which Annika Sorenstam, who retired in 2008 with 72 LPGA victories, will present the inaugural Annika Award to the nation’s best female player in college golf.

The recently announced Annika Award is the female equivalent of the Haskins Award, which for 42 years has been given to the most outstanding Division I male golfer. Selection is governed by the Haskins Commission of Columbus, Ga., which will oversee the vote of players, coaches and media for the Haskins and Annika awards. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
