Lexi Thompson stands strong with yet another US Women’s Open appearance
Despite her already overwhelming status in the circuit, it’s hard to believe that Thompson is 28 years old. The golfer has been around for long and has racked up more than a few victories during those years.
But surprisingly, Thompson will tee up in her 17th US Women’s Open this week. For those confused, the 28-year-old qualified for the tournament back in 2007, when she was merely 12 years old.

Has Thompson won the US Women’s Open in her career?
From the young girl of 12, Thompson qualified for every US Women’s Open since. Three years after making her debut at the tournament, she finished tied for tenth place.
While she was always in the hunt for a victory, after all these years, Thompson hasn’t managed to get her hands on the trophy. She has finished inside the top 10 five times, with her best position as a runner-up at the 2019 edition of the event.
