If there was a key to victory for Ochoa it was probably her play on the par 5s. She played them in 13 under par compared to Suzann Pettersen, who played them in 11 under.

Pettersen made only one bogey, on the fourth hole in the first round. This means she played 68 straight bogey-free holes, at 25 under par.
