Lorena Ochoa Wins the ADT Championship

November 19, 2007

With Lorena Ochoa’s win at the ADT Championship, this gives her her eighth title of the year thus far, and is the first player in LPGA history to win over $4 million in a season.

Lorena didn’t win this one quite easily. With two holes left to play, Lorena had a four shot lead. The 17th turned out to be a nightmare for her, as a normally par-3 hole left her with a double bogey. Her playing partner, Natalie Gulbis, made a birdie putt, and was now only behind by one shot.

Lorena would birdie at the 18th hole, which gave her a 4-under 68 and a two shot victory over Natalie Gulbis.

The $1 million prize holds special meaning for her, as she said that she would give $100,000 to a relief fund for flood victims in Tabasco, Mexico.
