Lexi Thompson Wins Meijer LPGA Classic

In April of 2014 Lexi Thompson won her first major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Today, she claimed her first win since that major, the 2015 Meijer LPGA Classic.

Thompson got the week off to a great start by wearing that number above to the pro-am/pairings party. She opened the tournament with a 69, then a 64 in the second round put her in a great spot. A third-round 68 followed, then, in the final round, Lexi shot 6-under 65. She finished at 18-under 266, one shot ahead of the runners-up Gerina Piller and Lizette Salas.

This is Lexi's first win in her 20s. Her four previous LPGA victories all happened while she was still a teenager.

Here's another shot of Thompson in that dress, this time next to Morgan Pressel:

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.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.
