Most people don’t realize it but Danny Willett (and his wife Nicole) had a secret weapon that helped him win the Masters. The secret weapon’s name is Zachariah, Willett’s new baby son who arrived a week before the first round. How did he help? Simply by being himself. You see, over the years I’ve found there’s a high correlation between how happy an athlete is and how much his or her life is in harmony and his or her level of performance. Athletes who are happy and whose lives are in harmony perform close to their sill levels on a consistent basis. This not only applies to male golfers, but to female golfers as well. Watch what happens when a female golfer takes a break and has a baby, then returns to the tour and starts winning tournaments. If you want to check out my theory, ask Julie Inkster.

But she’ll be back, and here’s why. When Lorena tearfully announced that she was retiring from active play on Friday, April 23rd, 2010, she said that she was retiring in order to look after her charity foundation, and also, and more importantly, she plans to raise a family (having married Andres Conesa, Aeromexico’s chief executive, last December.) For those of you who follow my column know that I am a strong believer that when an athlete’s life is in harmony, when they are happy, when they are helping others less fortunate than themselves, and when they have a high sense of “inner self” as Lorena does, they actually create positive events in their lives on and off the field of competition. I call this process “Psycho Self-Imagery.” In the field of golf, it’s not uncommon for members of the LPGA to take a maternity break, have a baby, and when they return they find their golf game has risen to a new level and they suddenly begin winning tournaments. (Just ask Juli Inkster and I’m sure she will confirm this.) Lorena has stated that she still plans to play in her own tournament each November in Guadalajara (The Lorena Ochoa Invitational) and when she does, that first tournament after the birth of her first baby, watch for her score to be lower than ever before. Maybe even 54, which means a birdie on every hole. Leona, along with Ai Miyazato and others, subscribe to Vision 54, a group of young women who believe making 18 birdies in a round (thus shooting 54 on a part 72 course) is absolutely doable. And Lorena has a great opportunity to achieving this since, according to her website, she likes the challenge of “managing your mind.”
