Lorena Ochoa not only is the best on the LPGA Tour, she may also be the most competitive player on any of the golf tours. Yes, I know that the conventional wisdom says that title belongs to Tiger, but after reading Howard Sounes The Wicked Game, I’m not so sure that his main motivation isn’t money.
Ochoa on the other hand says she just wants to win. From a Yahoo sports article:
Ochoa was trying to win for the fourth time in her last five events, but came up short for the second straight week. She tied for third last weekend in the Navistar LPGA Classic in Prattville, Ala. Ochoa still became the first woman to earn $3 million in a single season.
“I don’t care about the money,” Ochoa said. “I do not like to lose. That hurts me.”
Still, I’m sure she’d going to enjoy the $3 million.
