Lexi Thompson says being ‘addicted’ to working out has helped her game
It has been quite a year for Lexi Thompson.
The 22-year-old golfer has been through sport’s highs and lows and endured difficult times away from the golfcourse too.
In the season’s first major, the ANA Inspiration in California, the Florida native held a two-shot lead when she was told in the closing stages of the final round that she would be penalized four shots for an infraction that a TV viewer had spotted from the previous round.
Her composure on the course — she rallied to force a playoff which she eventually lost in sudden death to South Korea’s So Yeon Ryu — earned her new fans and social media was awash with indignation.
But during a challenging year — in May her mother was diagnosed with cancer while her grandmother died in September — Thompson has remained consistent on the course.
