Documentary chronicles LPGA star Lorena Ochoa, great golf in El Paso, Texas, and reviewing TaylorMade's Burner driver
Hear this latest episode of TravelGolf.com This Week.
Lorena Ochoa has become one of the most dominant forces in women’s golf, but her celebrity extends well beyond the golf course, especially in Mexico and Latin America. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks to Christopher Vitiello and Jonathan Ochoa (Lorena’s cousin), who are making a documentary film about Ochoa.
“We really believe in what Lorena represents as an athlete, a humanist and as a person,” Ochoa says. “For me, other than being family, she represents a whole country … and with such passion and drive.”
El Paso, Texas, might not be considered an excellent golf destination, but Senior Staff Writer Chris Baldwin says duffers should pay attention to Texas’ fourth largest city.
“It’s trying to make itself into the ubiquitous golf destination,” Baldwin says. “It’s probably not there yet, but if you’re in the area for something else, it has some interesting golf.”
Plus, National Golf Editor Tim McDonald talks about the new TaylorMade Burner driver.
“I tried out the Burner, first at the PGA show down in Orlando,” McDonald says. “It’s not one of their high-priced drivers, and for $300 I think it’s a heck of a driver.”
