The Return of Lorena Ochoa


Mexican Lorena Ochoa returns to professional golfing once again. But, just for a short while at the Lacoste Ladies Open de France of the Ladies European Tour at the Chantaco Golf Club in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Aquitaine, France.

Ochoa, now 30 years old, was hailed as world number one for three years and holds a record of winning two majors and 27 more wins in different tournaments. She bid full-time golfing goodbye in 2010 and spent her time for her family and charity events.

When asked what brought her to play in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France, she said, “Having Lacoste as a sponsor, they asked me to come and play the tournament. They asked me actually last year and I couldn’t because I was pregnant so I said, no, it would be too difficult for me. I prefer to wait for next year. Here I am and I’m very happy to support the tournament.”

Ochoa has liked the Chantaco Golf Club ever since she played there for an exhibition game some four years ago. She still remembers some of the holes and its management though she admits finding it difficult yet interesting because some greens are quick and rippling.

She keeps herself busy in Mexico by spending time in her foundation and writing. Her book about personal life and experiences on being a professional golfer is about to come out very soon. Living a very relaxed but busy life back home, Ochoa confesses that she doesn’t practice golf anymore but assures everyone that she will do her best and put more pressure on herself for the tournament.
