Another Nancy Lopez ?

Now that the LPGA Tour (my favourite) has established that Nancy Lopez was the first Lorena Ochoa (like in Jack Nicklaus was the first Tiger Woods), I was shocked to see a Nancy Lopez entered in the GINN Championships last weekend. This Nancy was forty pounds less than the previous one, and she was very involved in a workout routine that involved exercise.

In June several years ago I attended a gala for Lopez at the LPGA event in Delaware. She received scads of gifts, including first class airline tickets for her family, because she was retiring. Could the Lopez entered in Ginn be the same person?

As Brittany Lincicome was being presented her first place cheque (and she will win many more than Morgan Pretzel is my hunch) I tried to see how Nancy Lopez had done. 83, 80, MC

The question I had: if this is the same Lopez, does she expect more gifts when she retires again, or does she now give her others back?
