Lexi Thompson has officially been granted her 2012 LPGA Tour Card.
After Lexi's historic win at the Navistar LPGA Classic, she had to petition to earn her 2012 LPGA Tour card due to her age. While we believed she should be granted the card right away, she still needed to go through the proper requirements and submit her petition for the LPGA to decide. They decided and she's in.
Lexi became the youngest professional golfer to win an LPGA event after she won by 5 strokes at the Navistar LPGA Classic. Following her win, COBRA PUMA GOLF launched the #LetLexiPlay campaign to rally support for her dream to be a member of the LPGA Tour. On Friday, September 30th Mike Whan (LPGA Commissioner) helped make that dream come true by waiving the age requirement for Lexi.
Lexi outdrove the field at the Navistar LPGA Classic and we're excited to see what heat she brings next year to the LPGA Tour.
Congratulations, Lexi - this is well deserved!
