LORENA OCHOA PREVAILED in a sudden-death playoff against Candie Kung and Cristie Kerr to capture the Navistar LPGA Classic, Ochoa’s seventh win of the season and 24th career LPGA title. It was Lorena’s first win in seven starts after beginning the year with six victories in nine events.

“I think especially this one is going to be a good one for me,” Ochoa said. “I had a slow summer, and I’m just trying to come back … and it’s an important win for my career.”

Anything else memorable about the week?

“Uh-huh, a lot of great cooks. They made nice omelettes and the hospitality’s been great.”

She’s such an appreciative person. But I agree, a good omelette is memorable. This week Lorena defends at the Samsung World Championship in San Francisco.
