Thompson goes for history

Friday, August 7, 2009

ST. LOUIS – Alexis Thompson has a chance to make history as the youngest player to win the U.S. Women’s Amateur at 14 years, 5 months and 30 days. Kimberly Kim holds the record at 14 years, 11 months and 21 days.

Whatever happens over the weekend, we know a teenager will hoist trophy. Teens have won four of the last five Amateur titles. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
