The ladies of the LPGA don their sombreros and fly south of the border for this week's championship tournament. For the second time this year and only the fourth time ever, the LPGA has chosen a destination in Mexico. Tres Marias Residential Golf Club in Morelia, Mexico, a Jack Nicklaus design, is the site of this $1 million inaugural event and it's sure to be exciting. Native-born Lorena Ochoa, who carded a 63 mid-round at the Takefuji last week and finished solo second, will be among the competitors along with the event winner, Wendy Ward.
Knowing this course well and having a flurry of family, friends and media attention surrounding Ochoa can do one of two things to the only LPGA player from Mexico: it can raise Lorena's confidence level or it could put a lot of pressure on her, causing her to choke as she did at both the Mastercard and the Safeway competitions earlier in the season. If last week was any indication of her skill level, she should be able to pull off a win this week.
