IRVING, Texas (AP) Lexi Thompson got a congratulatory text from Nancy Lopez and a letter from Arnold Palmer. There was also a trip to Germany.
A lot has happened for the 19-year-old American in the three weeks since becoming a major champion. Now it's time to get back on the course.
Thompson tees off Thursday at the second North Texas LPGA Shootout, where world No. 1 player Inbee Park is the defending champion.
Park, No. 1 for 55 consecutive weeks, was bogey-free the final 35 holes last year while winning the inaugural North Texas event. The 144-player field includes 18 of the world's top 25 players playing a unique format with cuts after both the second and third rounds.
Texas native Stacy Lewis is the highest-ranked American at No. 3. Thompson is sixth.
