Both Annika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie certainly are impressive LPGA golfers but watch out for the hottest female golfer on tour, now the number-one golfer on the ADT Money list dethroning Juli Inkster, namely Lorena Ochoa! Not only did the 24-year old fresh-faced Mexican superstar take second place in an exciting playoff at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, she has now won this week at the Takefuji Classic! I'm betting that she wins at least one major tournament this season.
Besides Ochoa's great victory she takes home a check for $165,000 as well as now being eligible for a $1 million at the season-ending ADT Championship.
But does she remind you of 2006 Masters Champion Phil Mickelson? I think so because she seems to come so close to victory then chokes near the end...ah, but not this week! Perhaps those days are over for both of them!
Barry and I also discuss the hottest hybrid golf clubs on tour! Why are we both so fond of our new Adams Idea a2 OS and Hogan Edge CFT sticks? Listen and find out!
And, we always stock our golf podcasts full of golf tips, so check in and see what we have for you this week!

Congratulations also go out to Aaron Baddeley, "Bads", for his impressive win at the Verizon Heritage. His exciting victory over Jim Furyk gives the Australian's an edge at this tournament. Aussie Peter Lonard grabbed last year's trophy at the beautiful Harbor Town Golf Course.
Will "Bads" now receive an invite to the U.S. Open at Winged Foot? It doesn't matter because I think Baddeley will have no problem qualifying if he has to!
