Rolex World Ranking No. 1 Lorena Ochoa made a statement in her season debut in 2009 and opened her year with a victory at the Honda LPGA THAILAND. Ochoa entered the final round tied for second with Brittany Lang – three strokes behind 54-hole leader Paula Creamer. Ochoa and Creamer teed off in Sunday’s final group and on the back nine, Ochoa made a birdie on holes 11 and 13 before carding her lone bogey on the par-3, 171-yard 16th hole. She erased her step back by making a five-foot putt for birdie on the 17th hole to secure the victory.
