World number one Lorena Ochoa claimed her second consecutive major title with a five-stroke win at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California.

The Mexican made four birdies in the opening 10 holes at Mission Hills to extend her overnight lead of one shot.

She closed with a 67 to leave her 11 under, five clear of Annika Sorenstam and Suzann Pettersen, who both shot 68.

England's Karen Stupples finished 12th after a 72 left her on level par for the championship.

Ochoa, 26, clinched her first major title at last year's Women's British Open.
