He did not compete as a professional player, but as a celebrity and competed against amateurs. Celebrities and amateurs are scored using the modified Stableford method rather than stroke play. 0 points for a double bogey or better, 1 point for a bogey, 2 points for a par, 3 points for a birdie, 5 points for an eagle, and 8 points for a hole-in-one. 

Sorenstam led her celebrity division with 39 points with 3 birdies and a par of 15. She is two points behind American former professional tennis player Mardi Fish, who is second. Her swing and play are evaluated as if she were in her prime.

US Golf Week highlighted, “Sorenstam played a bogey-free round on her home course. It’s the first time in over a decade that he’s played a no-bogey.”

“I’m very happy,” Sorenstam said. “I’m happy to be able to play bogey-free here. My start was shaky, but I putted well, got my rhythm back and felt more stable and comfortable, and I hit a lot of good shots. There’s a long way to go, but today I’ll do my best.” I did everything I could,” he said.

Taking a new club and going to the competition helped a lot. Sorenstam brought the Callaway paradigm to this event. Not only the driver, but also the 3-wood and iron were matched with the paradigm. 

“I was confident because I’ve been with Callaway for a long time,” he said. “I bought Paradigm drivers in Las Vegas in early January. I received a set of clubs last week and they didn’t fit, so I fitted them and now they fit perfectly.”

He continued, “There’s also a shot that feels like old times. It’s the 9-iron I used on the last hole. I thought I had a 125-yard carry, but I got 133 yards. I think it was a good shot for the day.”

When asked if she was looking at the LPGA Tour leaderboard rather than the celebrity leaderboard, Sorenstam said, “I’m still competitive. That doesn’t mean I want to be there. I’m happy where I am.”

On the LPGA Tour, Brooke Henderson (Canada) took the sole lead with a 5 under par 67, followed by Nellie Korda (USA) with a 4 under par 68.
