DAPHNE, Ala.— Suzann Pettersen of Norway won the United States Sports Academy’s August Female Athlete of the Month after her comeback from nine shots down to win the Safeway Classic.

Pettersen became the No. 2 ranked women’s golfer behind Taiwan’s Yani Tseng by winning the Safeway Classic. She came from nine strokes down in the final round to defeat Na Yeon Choi in a one-hole sudden-death playoff. Pettersen shot the lowest round of the week, a 7-under 64, in the final round to finish at 6-under-par 207 overall at the Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club’s Ghost Creek Golf Course in North Plains, Ore. The victory was Pettersen’s second LPGA Tour title of the year and the eighth of her career.

The public is invited to participate in the worldwide Athlete of the Month nomination and ballot voting processes. Visit the Academy website at www.ussa.edu to submit your nominations each month, and then return to the website between the first and second Tuesdays of each month to vote on the Athlete of the Month. The votes along with the Academy’s selection committee choose the winners and they are announced on the Academy’s website and in the online edition of The Sport Update.

The winners will be considered as a candidate for the 2011 Athlete of the Year ballot. In December 2011, the Academy will name the Male and Female Athlete of the Year for the 27th consecutive year. The recipients of these prestigious awards are selected annually through worldwide balloting hosted by the Academy in conjunction with USA Today and NBC Sports.
