Didn't Lorena Ochoa get the memo? This was supposed to be Annika Sorenstam's week after she announced she will leave competitive golf at the end of year. Instead, Ochoa is stealing the spotlight at the Sybase Classic in Clifton, N.J., racing out to a two-shot lead over the field through 36 holes. (The tournament has been shortened to 54 holes after rain washed out Friday's play.) Sorenstam is five shots back of Ochoa going into Sunday's final round. One week after Sorenstam took a seven-shot victory at Kingsmill, Ochoa is returning serve. If she wins Sunday, it will be her third consecutive Sybase title. These two players could have spent the next decade trading tee shots and curling putts. Enjoy it while it lasts.
