Yesterday the female number one player in the World, Lorena Ochoa, grew another inch at least in my eyes. Playing in her home country she announced that she is to retire from golf following next week’s event. Retirement itself I guess is not all that impressive but the way she does it is. Lorena simply says that she has done what she wanted to do, reached the goals that she had, so in very simple terms – that’s it! What else is there to do? She now has a number of other goals that she wants to reach but they do not involve playing competitive golf around the globe. She wants to be home, with her family. She wants to start a family of her own and she wants to work on her foundation. 10 years on the LPGA was what she had always planned and to Lorena Ochoa taking the next step does not seem to be a dramatic move at all.

Do check out the transcript of the LPGA press conference with Lorena. It is excellent!
