Is this the changing of the guard? Lorena Ochoa opened up a 4-stroke lead, shooting an amazing 10-under 62. (Lefty Mickelson shot a 9-under 63 at the BellSouth Classic.) 16-year-old Michelle Wie is in second place, after shooting an impressive 6-under 66.

There’s been a lot of the recurring banter about the TPC, and whether it should become a “fifth major”? USA Today’s Jerry Potter has an excellent article about it here.
