Lexi's First Major

Congratulations to Lexi Thompson on her first victory in a major championship. The first of many? Thompson won the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship, and did so rather comfortably. Her ultimate margin of victory was three over a very game Michelle Wie, but Lexi's lead was in no danger from the early point of the round where she first stretched it to four.

How many more majors do you think Lexi will win? She's only 19. It's easy to envision her winning many more - she's a special talent. But when you think about that question, keep in mind how many majors the "Big 3" of the late 1990s/early 2000s won: Se Ri Pak has 5, Karrie Webb has 7, Annika had 10.

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
