Pretty good group of winners in the world of women's golf on Sunday, May 2, 2010. So good they deserve a post.
It was the swansong for Lorena Ochoa as a regular member of the LPGA Tour, but the Tres Marias Championship winner was Ai Miyazato. And if Ai's not careful, she's going to start dominating the LPGA like she did the JLPGA several years ago. This is the third win of 2010 for Miyazato. She's en fuego. And she beat back Stacy Lewis and Michelle Wie for this win.
Wait, Miyazato has competition for dominance - Jiyai Shin. Maybe they can just split all the wins. Shin won in Japan on Sunday, and it was a momentous victory. It meant that if Ochoa failed to finish fourth or higher at the Tres Marias, Shin would become the No. 1-ranked player in women's golf. Well, Lorena finished sixth. Shin is your new No. 1.
And on the Duramed Futures Tour, Paola Moreno won for the first time at the Hill Country Classic in San Antonio. She had a runner-up after turning pro in 2009. Moreno, from Colombia, was the 2008 NCAA women's champion while at the University of Southern Cal, from which she graduated with a degree in economics.
