    In terms of actual likelihood to place or make the cut, Annika Sorenstam (probably the most dominant female golfer in the last 50 years) is head and shoulders above Michelle Wie, who is definitely an unbelievable phenom. However, she hasn’t yet won a tournament, while Annika has 58 LPGA Tour wins and something like 12 major tournament wins.
