Lexi Thompson Net Worth, Career, Boyfriend & Bio 2022

Lexi Thompson is an American professional golfer who competes on the LPGA Tour. She made history as the youngest golfer to compete in the U.S. Women’s Open when she qualified at 12. When she was 15, in June of 2010, she leaped into the professional world.

When Thompson won the 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic at 16 years, seven months, and eight days, she became the youngest player in LPGA history to do it. Three months later, on December 17, 2011, she won the Dubai Ladies Masters by four strokes to become the second-youngest victor in Ladies European Tour history.

At 19 years, one month, and 27 days old, she became the second-youngest golfer in LPGA history to win a major title when she took home the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship (she still ranks in the top 5 youngest LPGA major winners).

Early Life Of Lexi Thompson

Thompson, Alexis Noel was born on February 10, 1995 (at the ripe old age of 27) in Coral Springs, Florida. She has two professional golfer brothers: Nicholas Thompson, who competes on the PGA and Korn Ferry Tours, and Curtis Thompson, who competes exclusively on the Korn Ferry Tour. She graduated “a few months ago,” she said in September 2012.

Personal Life Of Lexi Thompson

Lexi Thompson is currently unmarried and has no previous relationships. But she got 2019 off to a rocky start by placing T7th in the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions.

Another rules controversy involving Thompson occurred in August, during the first round of the AIG Women’s Open when she was seen by an official moving a tuft of grass behind her ball with her club; it was later determined that her lie had not been improved, as the grass returned to its original position, and she escaped any penalty. She ended up being eliminated later on.

In contrast, Thompson was in the driver’s seat entering the last round of the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, California, in June. Thompson has a five-stroke lead on the back nine of the final round. But she missed the playoff by one stroke after shooting a five-over-par 41 on the back nine.

Career Of Lexi Thompson

In 2007, when she was only 12 years old, she set a record as the tournament’s youngest qualifier for the U.S. Women’s Open. She scored 86-82 during the competition, which meant she did not advance. Lucy Li broke the record in 2014.

Aside from that, in 2007, she became the second youngest winner in American Junior Golf Association history after taking home the Aldila Junior Classic (AJGA). She also set a record for the youngest ever winner of the Westfield Junior PGA Championship.

She took first place at the 2008 U.S. Junior Girls’ Championship. She tried again in 2008, shooting 75-77 and missing the cut by two strokes in the U.S. Women’s Open.

In 2009, at age 14, she reached the cut at the U.S. Women’s Open for the first time, ending in a tie for 34th place at +11 (71-73-78-73=295). Later the same year, on a Monday, she qualified for the Navistar LPGA Classic and played a 65 in the first round, tying for 27th place, 12 strokes behind the winner, Lorena Ochoa.

Before the halfway point of 2010, Thompson was still an amateur. She played in the Women’s Australian Open as an amateur and tied for 16th (+3), 12 strokes behind champion Yani Tseng. She cut and tied for 24th place (+2) in the 2010 Kraft Nabisco Championship, 15 strokes behind champion Yani Tseng. She also defeated Laetitia Beck in a sudden-death playoff to win the 2009 Verizon Junior Heritage.

Professional Career Of Lexi Thompson

On June 16, 2010, Lexi Thompson made public her decision to begin her professional career. She has partnered with Cobra-PUMA Golf and Red Bull through sponsorship agreements.

Thompson was not an official member of the LPGA Tour. Therefore she relied heavily on sponsor exemptions to play in competitions. Although she received a sponsor’s exemption to play in the ShopRite LPGA Classic, she missed the cut by four shots.

She entered the U.S. Women’s Open, held July 8-11, by competing in qualifications in Florida in May. She earned her first professional check of $72,131 after placing T10 at the tournament with a +6 score (73-74-70-73=290), nine strokes behind champion Paula Creamer.

Two weeks later, at the Evian Masters, Thompson earned $242,711 for finishing tied for second with a score of 13 (69-72-67-67=275), just one shot behind the winner. With $314,842 in earnings from her first three professional tournaments, she would have finished 18th on the LPGA money list if she had been a tour member.

As a result of her performance at the Evian Masters, she moved up the Women’s World Golf Rankings by 75 spots to position number 74. She participated in three more LPGA Tour tournaments in 2010, with results of T16 and T57. She did not cut the CN Canadian Women’s Open.

The LPGA Petition

To increase her 2011 tournament participation beyond the LPGA’s standard six-event limit for non-members, Thompson petitioned the LPGA in December of 2010.

Though Commissioner Mike Whan turned down Thompson’s appeal in January 2011, he announced that the LPGA would amend its regulations so non-members could compete in Monday qualifying. This effectively allowed Thompson to participate in more than 12 events during 2011.

In October of 2010, Thompson started competing in one-day tournaments on the Fuzion Minor League Golf Tour, a stepping stone for male golfers aspiring to reach the highest levels of professional golf.

Women on the Fuzion Tour play 94% of the distance men do because the tees are relocated. In February 2011, she returned to a women’s competition at the Women’s Australian Open and the ANZ Ladies Masters, where she finished outside the money in both events.

As soon as she returned to the States on February 21, she won a one-round Fuzion Tour tournament at her home course in Coral Springs, Florida. Her first professional victory came when she and Brett Bergeron finished tied after 18 holes, and then she won the playoff on the second hole.

Thompson tried to enter the LPGA Kia Classic qualification on a Monday in March, but she was eliminated. Thompson received a sponsor’s exemption to play in the 2011 LPGA season opener at the Avnet LPGA Classic.

After the first three rounds, she was tied for first place with Song-Hee Kim. Double bogeys inflated her Sunday score of 78 at the 14th and 15th holes. Thompson finished in a tie for 19th place with a score of 1 (71-71-67-78=287), nine strokes behind Maria Hjorth’s winner.

She failed to cut the State Farm Classic after missing the cut at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, the LPGA Championship, and the U.S. Women’s Open on Monday. She tied for 36th place at her fifth 2011 LPGA event, the Evian Masters. She kept up her consistent Fuzion Tour play throughout the spring and summer.

At the Safeway Classic in August, she tied for 31st place; at the Canadian Women’s Open, she didn’t cut. After finishing five strokes ahead of fellow LPGA Tour rookie Tiffany Joh, she won her maiden LPGA competition, the Navistar LPGA Classic, in September.

She broke the record for youngest LPGA Tour champion, held by Marlene Hagge, 18 at the time of her victory in 1952, by two years. Even after 15-year-old, Lydia Ko won the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open on August 26, 2012, her record held for 11 months.

Thompson triumphed by a four-stroke margin at the Ladies European Tour (LET) event in Dubai on December 17, 2011. With this victory at the tender age of 16, ten months, and seven days, she became the LET’s youngest professional champion.

When she won the 2006 ANZ Ladies Masters as an amateur, Amy Yang set a new LET record aged 16 years, six months, eight days, four months younger than the previous record holder.

Qualifying For 2012 LPGA Membership

Thompson was able to play in the 2011 LPGA Qualifying School and gain membership in the LPGA Tour in 2012 because she successfully petitioned the LPGA for a variance to the rule that LPGA Tour members must be at least 18 years old.

The LPGA International course in Daytona Beach, Florida, hosted the first three stages from July 26-29, 2011. With a score of 23 (66-66-66-67=265), Thompson won the first stage by ten strokes.

Fifty people (including tiebreakers) who placed in the top positions in the first stage proceeded to the second. Thompson withdrew from qualifying school and applied to the LPGA for membership after she won the Navistar LPGA Classic. On September 30, 2011, Thompson’s appeal was granted, and she joined the tour as a participant in 2012.

In October’s Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia and November’s Lorena Ochoa Invitational, Thompson won for the second and third time on the LPGA Tour, respectively. She won the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship, her fourth LPGA victory overall, and her first major title. Because of this triumph, she became the second-youngest woman to win a major championship.

Thompson won for the fifth and sixth time in her professional career at the Meijer LPGA Classic and the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship. She had a career year, ranking #5 in earnings with $1,763,904.

Thompson won the Honda LPGA Thailand in 2016, giving her seven victories on the LPGA Tour. Her maiden professional tournament win came at the World Ladies Championship Salonpas Cup, held on the LPGA Tour of Japan. At the Women’s British Open held at Woburn Golf and Country Club, she tied for eighth, her best finish to date.

The first tournament of the year for Thompson was the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic, where she opened with a second-round 61 (12). Brittany Lincicome made a birdie on the first playoff hole and won the championship. At the Kingsmill Championship, she finished in the top 20 (65-65-69-65=264) and won her fourth LPGA Tour event.

In April’s third round of the 2017 ANA Inspiration, Thompson has penalized four strokes for replacing her ball incorrectly on the green at the 17th hole.

After the round was over and the infraction was discovered thanks to a tip from a TV viewer, she was docked two strokes for signing an incorrect scorecard and two strokes for replacing the ball improperly. Regardless, she advanced to the playoffs, ultimately falling to Ryu So-Yeon.

On September 9, Thompson earned her ninth title in the Indy Women in Tech Championship. Ariya Jutanugarn won the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship after Thompson missed a two-foot putt on the 18th hole. Although she didn’t win the individual races, she did take home the $1 million grand prize for the Race to the CME Globe.

Following her withdrawal from the 2018 Ricoh Women’s British Open, Thompson took a monthlong break from the LPGA. “I have not genuinely felt like myself for quite some time,” Thompson posted on Instagram.

Thus, I am using this break from professional golf to concentrate on myself and get some much-needed rest. Thompson had two missed cuts following her break before entering the CME Group Tour Championship to close the season.

With a score of 18 under par, Thompson defeated Nelly Korda by four shots to win the CME Group Tour Championship on November 18. This was her first win in almost a year and the tenth of her career; the prize money was $500,000.

On June 2, 2019, at the Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, Thompson tied for second place in the U.S. Women’s Open. Outside of Atlantic City, New Jersey, on June 9, Thompson won the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
