Lorena Ochoa Retires
By kickntrue on 4/20/10
This is not what the struggling LPGA needed- one of their top stars retiring... seemingly out of the blue.
Lorena Ochoa, the world's top-ranked women's golfer, announced her retirement Tuesday.It's funny- you speculate completely differently between a male and female athlete. I mean, isn't the first thing that popped into your head, "is she pregnant?" Two years ago I would've argued with you for hours that she'd end up being the best female ever to play golf. It seems now she'll just be a very good player with an amazing couple of years (4 straight "Rolex Player of the Year" awards).
Despite struggling so far in 2010- she's certainly going out on top. 27 career wins including 2 majors, along with $14M in career earnings. I'd say Lorena has the right idea...

She just got married, may be she want to start a family before she returns.
That'd be my best guess.
i really dont think this will hurth the lpga as much as some are saying it will.i dont watch the PGA just because tiger is playing and i dont watch the LPGA just because lorena is playing, plus i just dont think she is as much of a draw respctively to her tour as tiger is to his. i will still tune in to watch the ladies tee it up as much as i ever have and no less because of her retirement.
