Lorena Ochoa Invitational Discussion Thread

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

The LPGA completed its 5 tournament Asian swing last week, and we had a surprise winner. Non LPGA player Teresa Lu was victorious and will now have the opportunity to play full time on the world's biggest women's tour in 2014. Chella Choi, who I have said is the best golfer on the LPGA without a win, finished second just 2 back.

The LPGA moves to Mexico this week for the playing of the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

This will be tournament #27 of 28 on the LPGA schedule.

Here are the key details:

Go Inbee. Hope she finishes ahead of Suzanne and Stacy so the biased press don't argue for a blond POY. If either Suzanne or Stacy had two let alone three majors, I wonder if they'd be looking for excuses for a Korean with only one major to be POY.

After 3, Lexi out in front at -13, then IK Kim at -12 and Stacy Lewis at -11. Lexi won a few weeks ago so maybe she's 'hot'.

Congrats lexi. Way to go. Looks like she's starting to fulfil her phenom potential unlike her compatriot ms Wei.

Hey, Michelle had a good 4 rounds, tied for 10th and after a few bum years is playing considerably better. Sure Michelle has great potential but Lexi comes with a total life history of golf.  Her entire family is golf focused (one brother a PGA pro, other on college golf team), Lexi home schooled in order to play more so in fact Lexi is only walking the path others have led her on.  Michelle comes from an academic family background and she did  not begin life with a 5wood in her hand. Michelle is a Stanford grad and that ain't easy. Let's see what Lexi does with her life beyond golf. 

And i also offer my congrats to Lexi who i see as an aggressive and go-for-it player with a sparkling demeanor on the course.

She may not have begun life with a 5 wood in her hand but she started playing at age 4 and her mother was the South Korean amateur champion. I would say both had every opportunity for success.
