LYTHAM ST ANNES - World number one Lorena Ochoa's last chance to win a major this season comes at the women's British Open starting today at Royal Lytham.

The 27-year-old has won twice this year, in Thailand and her native Mexico, but has not become the same dominant figure as her predecessor at the top of the game, the heavily pregnant Swede Annika Sorenstam.

Ochoa gets married in November and also has a new caddie, Greg Johnson.

"Greg caddied for (seven-time major winner) Juli Inkster for about 12 years and he can help take my game to the next level," said Ochoa, who won her two majors with Dave Brooker on her bag.

Ochoa won the women's British Open at St Andrews in 2007 and her second major came at last year's Kraft Nabisco Championship. She had a disappointing build-up when she failed to make the top 30 at last week's Evian Masters in France. The title went to Ai Miyazato . - Reuters
