Pro Golfer Annika Sorenstam to raise funds for East Palestine, Ohio residents

Mar 11, 2023

The chemical spill in East Palestine, Ohio, hit home for legendary golfer Annika Sorenstam.

Mike McGee is the son of four-time PGA Tour winner Jerry McGee and the husband of LPGA Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam. McGee grew up with his sister Michelle in East Palestine, Ohio.

A freight train carrying toxic chemicals derailed in the small town on Feb. 3, spurring environmental and health concerns among residents.

Mike's ties to the area run deep. His mother is a native of the area and was a schoolteacher for 20 years. His father was a volunteer basketball coach. Jerry McGee died two years ago at age 77.
