Major in Hand Lorena Back in Action


LPGA Tour _newMICHOACAN, Mexico -- A week after winning her second straight major championship, women's world No. 1 Lorena Ochoa will head to her homeland looking for her third straight win.
Ochoa has won her last two starts -- the Safeway International and the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
That raised her career total to 20 wins and puts her within one point of earning enough points for induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Ochoa can earn the points now, but can't get inducted until she completes 10 years on tour.
Last year, Silvia Cavalleri stole Ochoa's thunder by closing with a six-under 66 to beat the hometown favorite by two shots. Ochoa shot 68 in the final round to share second with Julieta Granada.
Don't feel bad for Ochoa though, she has won nine times since that defeat. That was Cavalleri's first tour win and she is still looking for title No. 2.
There is no television this week.
The LPGA returns to action next week in Florida with the Ginn Open, where Brittany Lincicome won last year.
