Lorena Ochoa is competing this week at the Michelob ULTRA Open coming off her second worst performance of the year last week...a tie for fifth! In seven tournaments so far this year, she has five wins, a tie for eighth and a tie for fifth. It's a remarkable start to the year that has people talking about all sorts of records previously considered unattainable.
She has her work cut out for her right from the start this week, as the #1 ranked women's golfer is paired with the #2 and #3 ranked players for the first two rounds. Showing poise under added pressure and attention, she fired a clutch 6-under 65 in cool, damp conditions and is tied for third after round one.
As you can see in the image, in addition to her customary white Classics, Lorena opted for the black/red Performance Light Jacket (style #33673) during yesterday's first round.
