Lorena Ochoa has filmmakers 18 holes away from a perfect British Open ending
In early May, when interviewing Christopher Vitiello and Jonathan Ochoa about their documentary on Ochoa’s cousin - Lorena Ochoa - the pair admitted that after so long following the world’s No. 1 female golfer, they’d finish up shooting at the British Open, with dreams of the Mexican star walking down Hole No. 18 to collect the Women’s British Open at the legendary St. Andrews.
And now they’re just 18 holes away from seeing that perfect happy ending come to life and the experience has been dazzling to the duo.
“I don’t know how to describe it except to say things are just happening,” said Vitiello from St. Andrews in an e-mail exchange. “Lorena is playing great golf. She is composed and fluid, she has a great rhythm and she has been laughing the whole way.”
And while Lorena Ochoa said it was obviously exciting to be so close, she planned on bringing her same game to the final round, which she enters with a commanding six-shot lead.
“She knows that its not in the bag yet and understands that she has to still play eighteen holes, but she is going to bring her same game and still try to make birdies,” wrote Vitiello. “And if she doesn’t win, the film will most likely be able to be found in the ‘international section’ of the video store as it will be closest to a French tragedy.”
So will the final piece of footage Vitiello and Ochoa film for their documentary on Lorena Ochoa be a triumph or tragedy? We’ll know tomorrow.
