Anyone interested in LPGA? Me neither... but I figured I'd ask.
My existence on this planet is closing in on four decades, yet I've never watched an LPGA event in my lifetime. The fact is... I love to golf... but watching it has never been high on my priority list. And watching women's golf is even lower on the totem poll.
But today is special day. It's Lorena Ochoa's birthday.
If you're not familiar with her, she was once the top female golfer in the world. In fact, she is considered by some to be the greatest golfer to come out of Mexico and was the first one to be ranked #1.
Her list of achievements on the LPGA tour is long and impressive (lol... that's what she said).
Futures Tour Rookie of the Year: 2002
Futures Tour Player of the Year: 2002
LPGA Tour Rookie of the Year: 2003
LPGA Tour Rolex Player of the Year: 2006, 2007, 2008, & 2009
LPGA Vare Trophy Winner (Lowest Scoring Average): 2006, 2007, 2008
LPGA Tour Money Winner: 2006, 2007, 2008
I'm so out of touch, when it comes to women's professional golf, that I just found out she retired in May 2010. According to ESPN, she'll be eligible for the LGPA Tour Hall of Fame next year in 2012.
I pulled the 2004 SP Signature 8x10 autograph of Ochoa a few years ago, when I was trying to track down a Tiger. Anyways... you have to admit... Upper Deck sure knew how to make cards. That photograph is absolutely amazing. The only downside was their choice to use sticker autographs.
Happy 30th Birthday Senora Ochoa!
What about all of you...
