Sorenstam Beats Ochoa in Acapulco Skins Game

ACAPULCO, Mexico -- Annika Sorenstam beat Mexican star Lorena Ochoa on Saturday in the Acapulco Skins, finishing with $165,000 in the two-player event at Tres Vidas.
Ochoa earned $105,000 in the $15,000-a-hole competition.
Ochoa bogeyed the 16th to hand Sorenstam $45,000.
'It was an error. My shot went to the right,' Ochoa said.
After they halved the 17th, Ochoa took the 18th for $30,000.
'It was a good game,' Ochoa said. 'I fought like I'd hoped. I don't like to lose, and that's why I asked for a rematch, and she already told me, `Yes.''
Sorenstam struggled on the unfamiliar course.
'Sometimes I didn't know where to shoot. That's why I made some mistakes. I asked Lorena for advice, but I didn't do what she told me,' she said.
