Sorenstam, Lang finish one-shot back
GUADALAJARA, Jalisco, Mexico, Angela Stanford became the seventh multiple winner of the 2008 LPGA Tour season with her one-shot victory at the inaugural $1 million Lorena Ochoa Invitational by Banamex and Corona Light at the Guadalajara Country Club. The 30-year-old earned her third-career victory and second of the 2008 campaign with a four-day total of 13-under-par (68-66-72-69=275), one stroke better than 72-time LPGA Tour winner Annika Sorenstam (68-72-67-69=276, -12) and Brittany Lang (68-74-69-65=276, -12).
The win is Stanford's second in her last five starts dating back to her victory at the 2008 Bell Micro Classic. She sealed the victory with a par on the 72nd hole and narrowly missed a playoff after Sorenstam missed a nine-foot birdie putt on the same hole. Stanford's day was bogey-free with three birdies including back-to-back birdies on holes 10 and 11. The victory propelled her over the $1 million mark in season earnings for the first time eight-year career.
