Ochoa is the Woods of the womens tour?

Lorena Ochoa has quietly put herself in position to be the Tiger Woods the women’s tour — if she could only add some more major tournaments to her already sparkling resume.

Ochoa waited until the third tournament of the year to make her 2008 debut, then won by 11 shots. In what might be the strongest field of the year on the LPGA Tour last week, she missed a half-dozen putts inside 10 feet and still won by 7.

And the former No. 1 in the world, Annika Sorenstam says: “She’s playing some spectacular golf right now.”

Still, for all her good golf, she hasn’t won the Kraft Nabisco, played on one of her favorite courses.

She began playing Mission Hills as a teenager when she dominated college golf at Arizona. The support she feels in the Coachella Valley is second only to what she gets in her native Mexico, with so many family and friends in the gallery, along with fans from the area who make their presence known by waving the Mexican flag.
