Lexi Makes It Two

And why shouldn't she? It's been that kind of year. It's only appropriate that the youngest member of the LPGA Tour, who hasn't even played her first official round as a Tour member, quietly added an LET win to the LPGA win that got her a membership in the first place.

And of course she had to make her LET win that Tour's championship, the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters. She only won it by 3 shots... no big, right?

There's really no need for me to rehash the victory. You can read about it here at, as well as Devil Ball Golf, Fairways and Forehands (that's bangkokbobby's site -- lots of pics in this post), and Waggle Room. It's only a matter of time before even more sites add their own voices to the chorus, so there'll be plenty of coverage.

As yet there's no word whether Lexi will take LET membership. Helen Alfredsson said on the GC broadcast that the LET has no age limit in this case -- if you win a tournament, you've earned membership. With the limited schedule the LPGA has played lately, I wouldn't be surprised if she took it. However, even if she doesn't, I don't think Lexi's going to have any more problems finding a place to play.

  1. I watch all 12 hours of the Golf Channel coverage. Mike, I don't know how much of Lexi you have seen this year, but this girl is really something special. She is doing at age 16, what we have been waiting for Michelle Wie to do for a long time now.

  2. Oh yeah, Tony. I've been keeping track of Lexi for a few years now. She's been good all along, but she really stepped up her play this year... even before the LPGA win. The only surprise to me was that it took her so long.
