Lexi Thompson Wins in Dubai

From Ladies European Tour.com:

American Lexi Thompson, 16, became the youngest professional golfer to win on the Ladies European Tour when she captured the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters by four shots at Emirates Golf Club.

Aged 16 years, 10 months, 7 days, she became the second youngest ever Ladies European Tour event winner after South Korean Amy Yang, who was aged 16 years, 6 months, 8 days, when she won the ANZ Ladies Masters in Australia as an amateur, in 2006.

Thompson, born on February 9, 1995, claimed her second professional title just three months after winning the Navistar LPGA Classic on that Tour.

She started the day one shot clear of the field and lost her lead to South African Lee-Anne Pace after seven holes, but had quickly re-established her lead by the turn and played sensational golf through the back nine.
