Lexi Thompson Crushes 359-Yard Drive

April 14, 2016

Lexi Thompson has been a superstar on the LPGA Tour ever since her first win at the 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic when she was just 16 years old.

One of the strongest aspects of Thompson’s game is her power off the tee. She has finished in the top 5 in average driving distance on the LPGA every year, and sits firmly in first place this season with an average driving distance of 285.03 yards.

But now Lexi has outdone even herself.

Thursday at the LPGA Tour’s LOTTE Championship, Thompson crushed her drive on the par-5 fifth hole a whopping 359 yards, setting up an easy eagle. You can watch her second shot (a 9-iron to the green) below, which shows just how far she had to hit it off the tee to get it there.
