Lexi's Back in Action

Attention, Lexi Thompson fans! The first major winner of the year is back in action this week at the North Texas LPGA Shootout.

Lexi at Kraft Nabisco

If you're interested in what Lexi's been doing since her victory, here's the pre-tournament interview posted at LPGA.com. (There are also interviews with Inbee Park and Michelle Wie on that page, in case you're interested. And with Stacy Lewis being one of the big names in this field, you can find Stacy's interview here.)

Tony Jesselli has his usual preview posted, complete with some extra tidbits about the LPGA season so far. And here's the LPGA's official tournament page for the event.

I want to call attention to one of the notes Tony added at the bottom of his review because it makes this event somewhat unusual:
I should mention that this tournament is very unique in the fact that it has two cuts. The field will be cut to the usual 70 on Friday, and then it will be reduced to 50 on Saturday. The players that make the first cut and miss the second one will not be charged with a missed cut and will receive part of the purse.
The Saturday cut reduces the field by nearly 33% more, which gives a whole new meaning to the term "moving day."

And since Tony did his preview, So Yeon Ryu has withdrawn with an undisclosed illness so Louise Friberg is taking her place. Paula Creamer (who Tony does list as a WD) withdrew simply because she's tired. Nine events in a row will do that to you...

The first round starts today at 12:30pm ET on GC. Only two hours of coverage today and Friday, but they list 3 hours of coverage Saturday and Sunday.
