Back at the media center for a quick break before I go out with the rules officials and John Miller for their afternoon survey of the golf course. If you're looking for me, I'm right by the guys from Radio France, Le Monde and L'Equipe.
I'm hopefully going to meet up with Lorena Ochoa while I'm here, but currently she's no esta (not here). At other tournaments, I spend all day running around like mad, hopeful that whomever I'm looking for isn't on the range, or the putting green, or just teed off on the back nine. With Miller? I'm a convenient radio call away from finding out if she's here yet. (Yes, I'm definitely recruiting him for future tournaments.)
We were treated to a grand breakfast at the maintenance facility, prepared by Senor Raul. The maintenance team is buzzing with excitement for the tournament, but also for a Lorena Ochoa appearance. A few years ago she stopped in at the maintenance facility to say thanks for the hard work. This year, they've heard that she plans on making a return visit. So the staff has made a banner for her to let them know that Mission Hills CC supports Lorena. Also, they have a banner for their maintenance facility that they're hoping to get Lorena to sign. It reads, Lorena Ochoa si se puede! (yes, we can!).
OK, I have to bolt... more from the Kraft Nabisco soon.
