Lexi beats the guys in mini-tour event

February 22, 2011

Alexis Thompson took home some hardware on Monday after winning a mini tour event. Against men.

The 16-year-old shot a four-under 68 and parred the second playoff hole at TPC at Eagle Trace (her home course) to beat Brett Bergeron of LaPlace, La. She's just the second female in history to win on the Minor League Golf Tour (former Futures Tour player Carrie Dykstra won in 2004). Study her swing sequence to see how she generates all her amazing power.

Thompson pocketed $1,100 on Monday, along with a ton of confidence.
