HUXQUILUCAN, MEXICO (AP) - Lorena Ochoa is back home in Mexico and leading the Mastercard Classic.

The LPGA’s No. 1 player shot a 7-under 65 on Friday on the hilly Bosque Real course outside Mexico City that has often gotten the best of her.

She sailed through the difficult course with five birdies and an eagle on the 541-yard ninth hole. She held a two-stroke lead over Na Yeon Choi.

Brittany Lang and Yani Tseng shot 68s and were tied for third.
