Teen Phenom Lexi Thompson Grabs Second Round Lead At 2011 Omega Dubai Ladies Masters

Lexi Thompson

As the saying goes, experience should fear the strength of youth. Lexi Thompson is only 16 years old, but appears ready to take on the world. But I’m getting ahead of things. Although Lexi fired a 6-under 66 in round 2 to lead the 2011 Omega Dubai Ladies Masters at 8-under overall, there are still two long rounds to play. In golf, one bad hole…one bad shot…can unravel an entire tournament. Lexi finished the 1st round with 3 straight birdies on 16, 17 and 18. She started round 2 where she left off, birdying 2, 3 and 6. She added 3 more birdies on the back side to make her score on her last 21 holes 9-under par.

Michelle Wie

Another young American, Michelle Wie, made a move on the second day. After a 1-over first round where her putting woes continued, she bounced back with a strong 5-under 67. Her bogey-free second round leaves her at 4-under overall, 4 shots south of Lexi.

One thought on “Teen Phenom Lexi Thompson Grabs Second Round Lead At 2011 Omega Dubai Ladies Masters

  1. I’m trying to avoid the third round scores so I can watch it today as if it were live. Lexi is playing great, but Sophie is right here also. I walked a round with Sophie a couple years ago because she was in a threesome with Morgan. Very nice woman with a beautiful smile. It was so courageous of her to do what she did at The Solheim Cup during the summer. I had never heard about her having the speech problems she has. Doing what she did at The Solheim might have helped countless young people with similar problems.
