REUNION, Fla. (AP) -- Lorena Ochoa is the first LPGA Tour player
in 45 years to win four tournaments in consecutive weeks. The Mexican star closed with a 3-under 69 today to win the Ginn Open by three shots over rookie Yani Tseng. It's Ochoa's fifth victory in six starts this year.

Ochoa trailed early in the round, but went ahead for good with
three straight birdies beginning at Number 8. She finished 19-under
and becomes the second player to win four times in as many weeks.

Mickey Wright accomplished the feat in 1962 and 1963. Kathy
Whitworh in 1969 and Annika Sorenstam in 2001 also won four
straight events, but both took a week off during their runs.
