Thanks to mulligan for reminding me to cover Lorena Ochoa more. Let me start by directing you to her website (we’ve always linked to it on the right column), which has been updated to include even more stylish photos than before. Still no blog, though.

I hadn’t realized just how sensational Lorena was in college at Arizona, where she overlapped one year with Natalie Gulbis. Here’s what Lorena’s website says about her accomplishments:

“Despite competing on the collegiate level for only two years, Lorena Ochoa’s accomplishments place her atop the list of all-time elite college players. In 20 starts, she won 12 times, finished runner-up six times and never placed out of the top-10. In the 2001-2002 season, she won the first seven events of the year and finished with eight wins in 10 events, finishing runner-up in the other two. Easily earning NCAA Player of the Year honors in 2001 and 2002, Ochoa set the single-season NCAA scoring average record as a freshman at 71.33. As a sophomore, Lorena surpassed her own mark by almost two strokes per round with a 70.13 average.”

Frankly, this sounds better than Tiger at Stanford. Forget about Michelle Wie, is Lorena Ochoa the heir apparent to Annika?
