No offence to recent LPGA TOUR winners, but there hasn’t been much to smile about for male golfers glued to their TV sets in hopes of seeing the sport’s most beautiful people fight it out for glory. Lexi Thompson looks to change that after her scorching 64 puts her ahead at the Meijer LPGA Classic
Thompson left the blocks in a hurry, birdieing six of her first eight holes. She leads by a single stroke over Wei-Ling Hsu, who carded four birdies on her front nine to shoot 2-under 69.
“I wanted to make more birdies on the back nine,” said Thompson. “I hit it in the rough on a few holes on the back nine that I needed to hit into the fairway to be able to make birdies. But I’m very happy with my round.”
WHY GUYS DROOL OVER LEXI THOMPSON
At 6ft tall and with one of the most athletic bodies in all of professional golf, Lexi Thompson is one of the sport’s bombshells. One fan at the Meijer LPGA Classic described her as “golf’s answer to Danica Patrick.”
