Golden year for golf: Ochoa named female athlete of the year

While Tiger dominated basically every event he entered this year, LPGA star Lorena Ochoa was busy taking down a giant. Annika Sorenstam has been the LPGA's Tiger for several years now, but that all changed after the young Mexican Ochoa came to play. Ochoa won and placed second in many events to finish the LPGA season and claim the tour's player of the year honor.

Her success in 2006 was further honored when the Associated Press voted Ochoa the "female player of the year." In short, golf now has the best athlete in both the male and female sports world. It's hard to believe that golf, not considered a "major" sport, dominated the "majors" as well as great performances by its peers such as the success by Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova in tennis.
