Lexi Thompson spoke for the first time following the LPGA’s controversial ruling at the ANA Inspiration. The 22-year-old broke down in tears discussing the controversy at a press conference for the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout.
Thompson, currently ranked 5th in the world, said she’s dreamed since childhood of jumping into Poppie’s Pond, as is the tradition for the winner of the ANA – one of the LPGA’s major tournaments.
Said an emotional Thompson, “I don’t think I’ve ever played any better. And just for that to happen, it’s just kind of a nightmare.”
