Lorena Ochoa Invitational 2017
Club de Golf México
I believe this was my 5th LOI event and one I will surely remember. From our Pro Am team of Aaron Grieshaber, Augustin Sarasola, Ruben González to the extremely pleasant LPGA Golfer Pernilla Lindberg from Sweden, the many moments spent with Lorena Ochoa and family, having Sabine join me and much more – it was a great few days, I had put together a pretty strong team with 3 single digit golfers and an in form Pernilla however our score of -16 was 3 strokes off 1st place. A few too many missed putts was the difference! The 2nd Mayakoba team of David, Dad Ashley and Mikel beat us by one to rub salt into the wound It was later that day after the Pro Am that I also resigned from my present role at Mayakoba – to return in a similar role hole to Punta Mita – there is never a good time to resign but after a pleasant Pro Am with my Boss Agustin I could not think of a better moment! As such a day to remember – I loved my soujourn in Mayakoba and my team did a great job over that time with many a great event (livemayakoba.com) We also had the pleasure to follow 4 legends of the LPGA tour Annika SI Re Pak, Julie Inkster and Lorena herself around the picturesque Club de Golf México for 36 holes – what a moment shared with many friends present – Sabine; Caroline, Shanti, Lisa, Tatiana, Gianca; Hugo, Anko, Andrés, Judith and more under blue skies and perfect conditions. Hopefully next years editon will draw more crowds as it is truly a wonderful event – with the top LPGA golfers of the world Well done Alejandro Ochoa and of course Lorena!
