Lexi Thompson Solid, Beau Hossler Shines At PGA Tour’s Shriners


In the Shriners Children’s Open on Thursday, Lexi Thompson managed to keep a bad round from going worse and held her own until it was too dark for her to complete.

With a 9-under 62 that included a tee shot that struck the water left of the par-3 17th at the TPC Summerlin, Beau Hossler set the pace by tying his PGA Tour lifetime low.

The eighth woman to compete in a PGA Tour event and the first in five years, Thompson was the star of this FedEx Cup fall event.

She elected to mark her ball, a 20-foot par putt on the 17th hole, and return to finish the first round on Friday at 10:45 a.m. ET. She was 1-over par for her round after 16 holes.

A chance to make the cut was still in play, but maintaining her score in the area of par required a lot of effort.

Thompson took advantage of the par 5 holes by making birdies on two of them, and she added to her success by making a birdie putt from inside 25 feet on the second hole, which at least but her in the red. But she only had five opportunities to get inside 20 feet after 17 holes.

On the front nine, it appeared as though the round may get away from her. When she missed the green on the par-4 seventh hole and had to settle for par, she was even par. She failed to make a double bogey after running that past by roughly 4 feet.

She came up short in the rough on the par-3 eighth hole, chipped in around 25 feet from the pin, and missed her par putt by six feet. She made that in order to lessen the harm when she faced another double bogey. She then hit a 3-wood on the par-5 ninth hole that rolled just onto the green on the firm fairway, setting her a two-putt birdie from 30 feet.

The rest of the way, she avoided making another bogey, but she only had a few opportunities to score a birdie, missing from 8 feet on the 12th and missing an 8-foot putt on the par-5 16th.

She was tied for 76th when play was halted due to darkness.

Despite playing late, Thompson ultimately received the favorable draw. There was a strong wind and a chill at the beginning of the round. TPC Summerlin became a little easier to navigate as the temperature warmed up and the wind dropped down for the afternoon.

In the more difficult conditions in the morning, J.T. Poston shot 63. In the afternoon, Hossler, who also shot 62 in the final round of the 3M Open this year, showed off his impressive form. He just missed two greens, and he made the most of his opportunities.

He didn’t mind his one error. The hole’s 17th pin was cut to the left, and it has a steep slope that descends to the water. Hossler was able to drop close to the green after his tee ball hit the hazard, and he finished with a straightforward up-and-down for par. On the 18th hole, he sank a short birdie putt to complete his 62.

Davis Thompson and Lanto Griffin both shot 64 in the afternoon, while Cameron Champ shot 63. On a course where scores are normally low, ten players had scores of 66 or above.

This makes it more difficult for Lexi Thompson to start her second round in the morning after having a putt to make on the 17th green.

Michelle Wie came the closest to making the cut among women who have competed on the PGA Tour in the last 70 years. When she was 14 and a freshman in high school, she missed by one at the Sony Open in 2004.

At the competition, Thompson brought a white golf bag that had words written on it by young patients at the Shriners Children’s Hospital. Only in the past two weeks has the sponsor exemption come together, and Thompson stated that she hoped to inspire kids this week.
