The top-ranked female golfer in the world, Lorena Ochoa, 27, is often compared with Tiger Woods -- and Mother Teresa. "Some players think they need to be mean or rude to win," says Ochoa, whose saintlike behavior extends beyond the links to health- and education-oriented humanitarian work in Mexico. "I don't think golf or life is that way. It's possible to be respectful, have a good time, and play well." By thanking the spectators, caddies, volunteers, and groundskeepers at every tournament, she wins not just fans but admirers.
