Every time the LPGA returns to the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, Ochoa is asked if she’s feeling the urge to make a comeback.
Five-and-a-half years after she announced she was leaving the game to start a family, Ochoa affirmed again this week that she isn’t craving a return to tour life.
“No, maybe I’ll go back to play a Nabisco [ANA Inspiration] or a British Open, or a tournament that I enjoy, go there with my family just to have a good time, but I will never play a full season,” Ochoa said.
Ochoa is seven months pregnant, due in January with her third child, a boy. She and her husband, Andres Conesa Labastida, plan to name him Diego.
“Every other year the players come here, I have a big belly,” Ochoa told GolfChannel.com with a chuckle earlier this week. “I haven’t practiced or played much.”
Ochoa turns 34 on Sunday. Her oldest child, Pedro, will turn 4 in December. Her youngest, Julia, turned 2 last week.
