Annika Watch 2008: She's Getting Pasted

The HSBC Champions event was billed as the first in many expected head-to-head showdowns between Lorena Ochoa and Annika Sorenstam. Sorenstam, winning 1 of her first 2 events (#70 career), seemed poised to challenge Lorena right out of the gate. Whoops.

Mexico's Lorena Ochoa left her rivals trailing at the $2 million HSBC Women's Champions tournament in Singapore on Friday, carding a seven-under 65 in the second round to extend her lead to seven strokes.

Sweden's Annika Sorenstam clawed her way into contention with a five-under 67 for a share of second place with American Paula Creamer and Kim In-kyung of South Korea on six under par.

The word "Tiger-esque" really does come to mind. In Woods' season debut in San Diego, he whalloped the field. Ochoa is set to do the same this weekend if she maintains the same path.
