Lorena Ochoa Keeps it in Perspective

After claiming her third straight LPGA title at the Safeway Classic yesterday, Lorena Ochoa is heading back to Mexico for a one month break... to the disappointment of some, who would like to see her go for four in a row.

"I'm very happy with my three wins" Lorena explained yesterday, "But it's time for me to go home".

So what if she could match the LPGA record of four straight, last achieved by Annika Sorenstam in 2001... there are things that take priority, and for Lorena, family is obviously one of them. She's got her brother's wedding coming up, and she's not going to miss that.

That's Lorena for you; winning and winning and winning, but keeping it in perspective. No wonder she's so universally liked and admired.
