(Newser) – World No. 1 Lorena Ochoa became the first U.S. LPGA Tour player in 45 years to win four tournaments in consecutive weeks on Sunday. Ochoa shot 3-under 69 in the final round of the Ginn Open and beat Taiwanese rookie Yani Tseng by three strokes for her fifth victory in six starts this year.

"I'm very grateful. It's been a blessing, you know," Ochoa said. "But I know that bad times will come. It's just the way life is. I'm just trying to enjoy my moment, and I would like to enjoy it for a long time. So even if it's going to be an up-and-down ride, hopefully I can stay there."
