Four players have led the tour in a single season with 10 wins, but only one player managed to do so after 1968 – Sorenstam.

Betsy Rawls was the first to do it in 1959, winning two majors in the process. Mickey Wright led the tour with 10 titles on three separate occasions: 1961, 1962, 1968. Actually, Wright wasn’t the only player to reach 10 wins in ’68. Carol Mann did the same. In fact, Kathy Whitworth finished second to Mann five times that season.

Sorenstam’s 2005 season included two major victories and several dominant showings. She won the Chick-fil-A Charity Classic by 10 strokes and the Kraft Nabisco and Samsung World Championship by eight.
