Lorena Ochoa Named Player of the Year

After a spectacular season, Mexico's Lorena Ochoa took the LPGA's player of the year honor. Ochoa's victory was hardy surprising after she had arguably the most dominant year of any player other than Annika Sorenstam during the current era. Ochoa clinched the player of the year title by winning her 6th event of the season at the Mitchell Company Tournament of Champions. A seven under Sunday round in Alabama was good enough for a great victory over several of the tour's other young guns such as Paula Creamer.

Ochoa's Player of the Year honor is the first in five years not given to Annika Sorenstam. The 2006 season may signal a changing of the tide on the LPGA tour which leaves golf fans to question if Annika will reclaim her post in 2007.
