MEXICO CITY – Former No. 1 player Lorena Ochoa is making a limited return to golf and will play in October at the French Open on the Ladies European Tour.
The 30-year-old Mexican retired in 2010 and gave birth to a son in December 2011. She has always said she would play a few occasional events, but did not foresee a return to a competitive schedule.
A statement on her website Thursday said the tournament in France would be one of two sanctioned events she plans to play. She will also enter her own tournament, the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Nov. 8-11 in her hometown of Guadalajara. She missed the event last year when she was pregnant.
