Another week, another Lorena Ochoa victory. Ochoa claimed the Ginn Open on Sunday for her fourth straight victory, and fifth of 2008.
Her four consecutive wins have come in consecutive weeks on the LPGA Tour, too, tying a tour record. Mickey Wright, Kathy Whitworth and Annika Sorenstam also won in four straight weeks. Lorena has a new record in her sights: She is one win away from the overall longest winning streak on the LPGA Tour. Sorenstam and Nancy Lopez each posted wins in five straight tournaments in which they played.
