The Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Banamex and JTBC is a women's professional golf tournament in México on the LPGA Tour. Hosted by Lorena Ochoa, the event debuted in November 2008 at the course where she learned to play, Guadalajara Country Club in Guadalajara.

The Lorena Ochoa Invitational is a 72-hole limited-field tournament, limited to 36 golfers. The top five in the Rolex Women's World Rankings are invited, in addition to the top 26 players on the LPGA money list not already in the field via the rankings. Another five players are invited through sponsor exemptions.

In 2014, the tournament moved to the Club de Golf México in Mexico City, a par-72 layout set at 6,684 yards (6,112 m).[1][2]

In November of 2016 it was announced that the event would move to the first week of May in 2017 as a match play event with a field of 64 players and $1.2 million dollar purse.[3]
