Just looking at LPGA players, Lorena
is first leading Annika by 0.58 in overall scoring average. Lorena is
also first among LPGA players in scoring average over 16 round of Majors--by 0.31 over Annika. She hasn't won a Major yet, but she seems
to play as well in Majors as anything else.

Jim, I know you're fond of the numbers. We could also say that Ochoa won 29% of the regular Tour events she entered and 0% of Majors. I did not say she didn't play well. Quite the opposite, I said she was the most consistent golfer in the LPGA. But playing well and winning are often different things, and by the tiniest of margins. One bad decision under intense pressure in the toughest of course conditions can easily cost a championship.

Ochoa is obviously very good and attractive. The only negative I can see is a tendency to get nervous and blow it. This is quite common in humans except for rare people like Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus. People like Mickelson, Tom Kite, or Davis Love III have blown it a lot more often than not so she is in good company. Usually over time these normal people get better at handling pressure and so has Lorena.

No question, Ochoa has had to deal with choking. Most notable was the duffed tee ball on the 72nd hole of the 2005 US Open. As I recall, Johnny Miller said it was one of the worst shots he'd ever seen a professional hit. And he was right. But it seems as though Ochoa has grown through these collapses and is now poised to make the final leap into greatness. We'll be watching.

O.S. - Tom Watson was probably the best golfer to carry the choker label early in his career. He also got past it quite well.

Don't forget about Payne Stewart, he went from serious choker to clutch. Kite is the worse choker I've ever seen, the only reason he won the U.S. Open was because he had no idea he was in contention.

Payne Stewart tried everything possible to get over the gagging. At one point he had an accupuncture needle stuck in his ear lobe while playing tournament rounds - allegedly to help focus. I personally never thought of Kite as a choker, but rather just very steady and not quite a good enough putter to win much.
