While Tiger Woods grinds at the Masters, Lorena Ochoa enters Corona Championship final round with a seven stroke lead
I don’t really need to write the rest of this blog, you got the main dope right there in the headline.
That’s right, Lorena Ochoa shot three consecutive 66s and is entering the final round of the Corona Championship with a seven-stroke lead over current runner-up Inbee Park. Think she’s going to win? At the risk of jinxing the woman, I’d say it’s a safe bet. Of the three wins she’s already chalked up this season, the smallest margin she won by was five strokes.
Improving her chances is the fact that several of the LPGA’s top performers–Annika Sorenstam, Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel, Karrie Webb–are sitting this one out.
A win today will bring Ochoa up to four wins out of five starts. An 80% win percentage. Three wins in a row. The domination continues.
Hey, if your TV has picture-in-picture and you can stand giving up some valuable screen real estate as you’re watching the Masters, check out the action on channel? no, wait. I take it back, the Corona Championship, played in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico, won’t be showing on TV today. So suck it up and keep your eye on the leaderboard here.

[Soooooo....I don't suppose anyone would care to compare and contrast Mr Woods' manner of dealing with an injury with Ms Wie's - gosh, that would just be like beating a dead horse, wouldn't it????
Tiger with a blown knee finishes second at the Masters....Michelle with a sore wrist doesn't even START. *sigh* "The Making of a Champion" indeed......LOL]
Personally I think she should have stopped playing as soon as the injury happened and given it all the time it needed to heal, not this halfway stuff she tried to do with continuing to practice and play and finishing dead last if at all.
But I don't think it's fair to compare Tiger and Michelle's reactions to those injuries because those injuries are so different. When Tiger has a broken wrist, or MW has damaged cartilage in her knee, then let the comparisons fly.
