At least when Annika won the last 3 years she dominated the LPGA. Ochoa was the best in the LPGA this year--but by a fairly small margin, and she did not win any of the Majors. Hardly the kind of resume that would lead one to expect a landslide win as AP Female Athlete of the Year.

Ochoa got an assist from Michelle Wie. I suspect that most of Ochoa's support came from media critics of Wie's efforts against the men. The message being sent to Michelle Wie is that she should focus on the LPGA, where success will bring an automatic landslide win as AP Female Athlete of the Year to anyone who is top woman on the tour, even if she fails to win a single Major title.

I am prone to think that Wie could care less about which message is being sent. I also believe that, after four consecutive years of a female golfer being named athlete of the year, we will not see another unless she wins three or four majors in one year. Tiger is an athlete ten ways from Sunday: strong, fast, mentally unbeatable. No woman on the LPGA tour could contend physically with any WNBA or olympic athlete, as Woods could.
