It was an outstanding final group at the 2013 Marathon Classic coming down the stretch on the back 9. Lexi Thompson won a Kia Cadenza with a hole in one on the 14th hole. Showcasing a dazzling display of her ability to crush the ball off the tee, Lexi gave herself two more chances at eagle on 17 and 18, although she would settle for birdie. One of the tour’s brightest stars, Paula Creamer, fired a bogey free 4-under 67 in pursuit of her first win since the 2010 US Women’s Open. Furthermore, as well as she played…and 16-under is very well played…it could have been even better. The Pink Panther left a few shots out there. When the dust settled, however, it was Beatriz Recari standing alone atop the leaderboard at 17-under. Beatriz is emerging as a force on the LPGA tour, with her 2nd win of the season (3rd win overall). It’s her 5th top 10 of the year, moving her to 6th on the money list.

Although Lexi clearly had the shot of the day with her new car winning ace on 14, to me the most important shot was Recari’s long birdie putt on 16. Paula was set up for a short birdie putt with a chance to make up that crucial 1 shot deficit. Beatriz would not concede the lead, bombing in a 25 foot birdie putt of her own to get her to 17-under, which held up for the win. It was a terrific performance and victory for Beatriz, made all the more impressive by the fact that the crowd was clearly pulling for Paula. I would describe the applause for Beatriz as polite, not enthusiastic as it was for the Pink Panther. Nevertheless, Recari did what she had to do. It was a great battle between the two LPGA stars. With Solheim coming up, maybe we’ll get to see them matched against each other again.
