Take a look at what could be the future of American Ladies Golf: Alexis Thompson. She’s fifteen and she is more than holding her own with the big girls. So far this year on the LPGA Tour she finished T24 at the Kraft Nabisco Championship as an amateur, missed the cut at The ShopRite LPGA in her pro debut then placed tied for tenth at the U.S. Women’s Open and cashed her first professional paycheck. She was able to place tenth at Oakmont, the toughest course these ladies had ever faced.
This week she is in the hunt at The Evian Masters and currently sits tied for fourth place and three strokes back. She is only fifteen years old but plays like a cunning veteran. The talk is that she’ll petition for early entry into the LPGA. There’s no way they can say no to a talent like this.
