Ochoa looking to duplicate success of former UA great and LPGA star Annika Sorenstam
Lorena Ochoa has never had a problem with challenges. With only seven golf courses in all of Guadalajara, Mexico, getting a tee time wasn't exactly easy for Ochoa. But after joining a country club at the age of five, she played every chance she got.
After she became a local prodigy, Ochoa decided to start playing golf at UA, and it didn't take long for people to start learning who the 5-foot-6 powerhouse was. It took even less time for her to make her first mark on college golf. After a ninth-place finish in her first-ever event as a Wildcat, Ochoa won the Comcast/Dick McGuire Invitational and never looked back.
