World No. 1 Lorena Ochoa underlined her dominance in the women’s game by charging to a second successive major title by five shots at the Kraft Nabisco Championship yesterday.

The 26-year-old Mexican, a stroke ahead overnight, fired a flawless five-under-par 67 to pull away from the field on a breezy sun-drenched day at Mission Hills Country Club.

Ochoa, who clinched her first major title at last year’s Women’s British Open, closed the door on the chasing pack with a three-birdie run from the eighth before finishing at 11-under 277.

It was the 20th LPGA victory of her career, and her third this year in just four starts.

“This was a great day,” a soaked Ochoa told reporters after making the traditional champion’s leap into the pond bordering the 18th green with more than 20 family members and relatives.
