GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP) -- Lorena Ochoa is right at home at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, this time off the course just weeks before the birth of her first child.

On Wednesday, a day before the start of play in the 36-player event at Guadalajara Country Club, Ochoa said: "It's different, that's for sure. It's also great for me to say 'Hi' to the players and be more involved outside the ropes and in interviews and spending time with my sponsors. I like it a lot."

The 27-time LPGA Tour winner retired last year. She's expecting a boy, who will be named Pedro.
