Breaking news: Lorena Ochoa not in the lead at the Ginn Open--for now, anyway
After winning four of her five tournaments this season, it’s getting to the point where the big news isn’t when Lorena Ochoa is ahead, but when she’s not.
“It’s nice to be a few shots behind,” Ochoa said yesterday after her second round at the Ginn Open. Yes, I’m sure it gets old to always be ten or eleven strokes out front. It must be a real drag.
Ochoa shot 68, 67–good enough for her current position of T3, three strokes behind the current leader, rookie Yani Tseng. The Taiwanese teenager shot a blistering 64 yesterday to take the lead going into the weekend.
Last season proved to be a breakout year for Pettersen, with five victories including her first major; it was just a matter of time before she’d start appearing at the top of the leaderboard again.
Perhaps Tseng can benefit from a little trick Ochoa uses: “Even when I’m winning, I try to think that I’m behind and try to play my own game and make a lot of birdies,” says Ochoa. “That’s the only way to keep good focus and play good.”
Watch the final round on CBS from 1 to 3 pm ET.
