Golf: Lexi Thompson Becomes Youngest Ever Female Professional

Lexi Thomspon is already breaking records by becoming the youngest ever female golfer to turn professional. A deal with PUMA-COBRA will see the youngster sporting PUMA golf shoes and Cobra golf clubs at the 2010 LPGA ShopRite Classic in New Jersey June 18-20.

Alexis first turned heads at a mere 12 years old when she became the youngest ever qualifier for the US Women’s Open.

At last week’s Curtis Cup, Lexi won four matches, including a 6-and-5 win on Sunday. Earlier this year, she was runner-up at the 2010 Harder Hall Invitational and Dixie Amateur. She has played in three consecutive U.S. Women’s Opens (2007-2009), captured both the 2008 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship and 2009 Junior PGA Championship, and successfully represented the U.S. in the 2009 Junior Solheim Cup.
