In May 2010, Lorena Ochoa made the decision to retire her golfing career at the age of 28 because she had her first child Pedro.

Lorena Ochoa's Quotes

The more chances I have, the better, and I'm going to keep trying

You have to practice; being in the situation is the only thing that helps. You have to make all the mistakes and you have to learn from them. The more you do it, the more comfortable you feel and then you learn.

I didn't think it would be a tournament record
