NOTES
Lorena Ochoa will return as the three-time defending champion at this week`s Sybase Classic. Ochoa`s win last year -- the tournament was shortened to 54 holes because of a rain-out on Friday -- stole some of the spotlight from Annika Sorenstam, who used a pre-tournament news conference at Upper Montclair to announce her retirement. Sorenstam, who retired at the end of the 2008 season, opened with a 67 to take the first-round lead, but finished 73-71 for a share of 11th place. Ochoa shot a one-under 71 in the final round and finished the tournament at 10-under-par 206. She beat five players -- Morgan Pressel, Catriona Matthew, Na Yeon Choi, Brittany Lang and Sophie Gustafson -- by one stroke. Highlighting the field with Ochoa this year is Cristie Kerr, who is coming off a win Sunday at the Michelob Ultra Open. ESPN will have coverage of the final three rounds. Next week marks the final playing of the LPGA Corning Classic, where Leta Lindley won last year. It was announced earlier this year that Corning would not renew its contract as a tournament sponsor and that the event would be taken off the schedule after having been played every year since 1979.
