Alexis Thompson, 14 years old, is playing her fifth Navistar LPGA event, shot 7-under 65 in the first round of the Navistart LPGA Classic and taking the lead Thursday afternoon.
She won her second consecutive Junior PGA Championship this summer. Thompson’s appearance at the top of the leaderboard is not a surprise, since she has amazing record in junior and amateur events, and also professional events as well. She finished 34th in the U.S. Women’s Open this year. In 2007, she was the youngest player to ever qualify for the Women’s Open. She was 12 years at that time.
