Lexi was born February 10,1995, in Coral Springs, Florida. She was born into a family that loves golf and she competed often against her golfing brothers (both of whom went on to pro careers themselves). Competitiveness stoked at a young age transferred into competition and into full bloom in 2007. That year, Lexi survived a USGA qualifier to earn a spot in the field at the 2007 U.S. Women’s Open. She was only 12 years, four months and one day old when she qualified, becoming the youngest-ever qualifier — beating a record previously held by Morgan Pressel. Lexi turned pro at age 16 and won on the LPGA Tour at age 16. It was quite a start to a golf career, but a start that Thompson continues to live up to. So far, Thompson has 11 career wins on the LPGA Tour. The first was achieved in 2011 at the age of 16. In the major championships, Thompson has one victory so far, at the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship. But she has multiple Top 5 finishes in other majors, including a playoff loss at the 2017 ANA Inspiration. In addition, Thompson has one victory on the Ladies European Tour (2011 Dubai Ladies Classic) and one on the LPGA of Japan (2016 World Ladies Championship Salonpas Cup).
