Where Sorenstam led, others like Michelle Wie followed in men's events, but she knows that the LPGA still has a long way to go to match the coverage given to the PGA Tour.
To boost interest, she would like to see the two tours run combined events as the same venue as happens with ATP and WTA tennis tournaments. "It would be great for fans" and would pave the way for more equality in prize money she believes.
The 42-year-old was recently named vice-captain to fellow Swede Liselotte Neumann for the 2013 Solheim Cup in Colorado.
She performed the same role as Europe beat the United States in the biennial team event in Ireland in 2011.
But is she ever tempted to make a playing comeback?
"I think about when I turn on the golf on TV," she admitted. "I remember what it was like to come down the stretch in the lead, but then I look at my kids and know that I am happy where I am in my life.
"To play with my husband and two children would be my favorite foursome now."
Juggling the demands of a busy professional and business life, her diary is hectic, and finding time for her young family, would test anybody.
But one has the feeling that Sorenstam is totally committed to her new life away from professional sport and wild horses could not drag her back on the fairways of the world.
