Ochoa leads again on LPGA Tour

April 10, 2008 at 9:42 PM   |   Comments

MORELIA, Mexico, April 10 (UPI) -- Lorena Ochoa, again exerting her domination of the LPGA Tour, shared the first-round lead Thursday at the Corona Championship in Morelia, Mexico.

Ochoa is coming off her second straight major title, a one-sided win at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. She is seeking her fourth victory of the year.

She recorded two eagles to fire a 7-under 66 at the Tres Marias Golf Club and was tied for the lead with Song-Hee Kim. Ochoa has won 17 tournaments in the last 24 months and could qualify for a spot in the LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame if she wins this week.

"I managed to have that (the Hall of Fame) out of my mind and stayed relaxed," Ochoa said. "The conditions were good and I'm glad I took advantage of that."

The co-leaders had a three-shot cushion over Carin Koch, Kim Williams, Audra Burks, Inbee Park, Na Yeon Choi and Hee Young Park.
