Womens World Golf No 1 Ochoa Retires From Lpga Tour-www.avtt.net

Golf "Lorena Ochoa confirms her retirement from the LPGA, as news reports in some media have said today," Ochoa’s statement said. "Reasons and more details on the matter will be given by Lorena personally in a press conference on Friday in Mexico City. Lorena will share this news of a new stage in her life with her sponsors, family members and friends." The loss of Ochoa is a major blow to the LPGA, already struggling with fewer tournaments and lost sponsors because of economic setbacks. The LPGA was hit in 2008 with the retirement of long-time world number one Annika Sorenstam of Sweden, but Sorenstam was 37 when she said farewell to start a family. Ochoa, who won 27 events over the past six seasons, is scheduled to play next week at an LPGA event near Mexico City and the LPGA said Tuesday that she has not withdrawn from that tournament. Ochoa, who has missed the cut only four times in 172 LPGA events, finished fourth earlier this month in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, this year’s first women’s golf major. She failed to crack the top-10 in three other 2010 starts. Last season, Ochoa edged South Korea Jiyai Shin to claim her fourth consecutive LPGA Player of the Year award. She won three times in 2009 after collecting seven titles in 2008, eight in 2007 and six in 2006. Ochoa won her first major title in 2007 at the Women’s British Open and added another at the 2008 Kraft Nabisco. The Guadalajara native, arguably the most likeable player in the game, has always credited her family, coach and friends as the most significant factors in influencing her career.
