For a golf writer to talk about a Lorena slump. From AP-
PRATTVILLE, Ala. â€“ Lorena Ochoa takes another streak into the LPGAâ€™s Navistar Classic. For a change, sheâ€™s trying to end this one.
Ochoa, set to begin play Thursday on Capitol Hillâ€™s Senator Course, is making her first start since the Safeway Classic on Aug. 24 and is winless in seven events.
â€œItâ€™s been challenging in the last months, that I didnâ€™t get any wins,â€ Ochoa said. â€œSo it would be nice to start that roll again.â€
She spent much of the past month at home in Mexico trying to regain the form that helped her win six of her first nine starts this year, including four straight.
Lorena’s last win was Sybase in May. After her win at the Ginn Open, at least two golf writers talked of Ochoa winning all the rest of the tournaments she entered in 2008, and or completing the Grand Slam. The usual silly talk heard from lazy people covering pro golf, except this time it was Lorena Ochoa instead of Tiger Woods. Ryan made note of it at the time.
Yesterday in a comment at Hounddog’s blog, I made mention of the lack of Lorena slump talk. This article had come out the day before. Bad me for not noticing.
Then I’m not Andrea Adelson who wrote Lorena would win a Grand Slam before Tiger. Andrea, how many times has Woods completed the Grand Slam and how many times has Lorena? Time for some Final Jeopardy music…….
Tiger 3, Lorena 0. It was 2-0 before Adelson wrote her dumbass column. I wonder what she would be writing now?
By the way I’m not criticizing Lorena, just the media coverage. There are probably at least 50 LPGA golfers who would take Lorena’s results since Sybase for their own.
Talking about media coverage, is it coincidental or not that the talk about too many Asian winners died off at the same time that three blondes took LPGA events in a row. The blondes are now ruining the LPGA tour!
