To kick-off the American Express Mayakoba Masters of Food, Wine & Golf attendees will be able to watch golf legend Lorena Ochoa in action during a golf clinic presented by Rolex, as she gives her best tips on how to master the course prior to the Mayakoba Cup.
Lorena started playing when she was five years old and her career advanced very fast. At six, she won her first state championship; at seven, a national one; at eight, she ranked number one in the World Junior Golf Championship and at thirteen, she was the only player in the world to win for five consecutive years the Junior World International Championship and the World Junior Golf Championship; a record that Lorena still holds.
She started her professional career in 2002 on the Futures Tour, where she won three tournaments and ranked first place on the money list; this granted her a place on the LPGA. Five years later, in 2007, Lorena Ochoa, at only 25 years of age, ranked number one of the world.
Since 1989, Lorena has won 129 local, national and international titles, and 27 LPGA events, in addition to other 83 prizes and recognitions. She has won two Majors (2007, RICOH Women’s British Open and 2008 Kraft Nabisco Championship) and her achievements have been compared with those of Tiger Woods and Nancy Lopez, two golf legends.
Lorena Ochoa became the ultimate winner of the Premio Nacional de Deportes (National Sports Prize) after obtaining this award for three years in a row from 2004 to 2007. Lorena Ochoa receives every year the best 36 world players in her home at the LORENA OCHOA INVITATIONAL PRESENTED BY BANAMEX a symbol of our city and our country and fundraises for her foundation, the Lorena Ochoa Foundation.
