The world’s number one female golfer, Lorena Ochoa has announced her retirement from the game. The Mexican will give reasons for her decision in a press conference from Mexico City on Friday.
It is the second time in three years the one of the LPGA’s biggest stars has retired from the game. Annika Sorenstam decided to concentrate on other parts of her life including her charity work and having a family.
Ochoa became the first Mexican to be the number one golfer (male or female) and has been winning tournaments since she was seven years old and may be the most popular non-footballing athlete in Mexico. It serves a huge blow to the LPGA Tour which has downsized the number of tournaments since the decline of the economy.
