“A Unique Experience”: Amidst LIV Golf, PGA Tour Rivalry, Lexi Thompson Makes a Bold Statement Regarding Team Events

With the PGA Tour going ever so strong with another incredible event at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the debate between team events in golf has become louder. The LIV Golf Series has become the latest torchbearer for group events, while the PGA Tour has found success in the traditional format. But what does LPGA star, Lexi Thompson, feel about golf’s latest innovation?

Lexi Thompson argues between solo and team events
Despite her age, Thompson is a seasoned golfer on the LPGA Tour. Her career started out as an enthralling 12-year-old as the youngest golfer ever to qualify to play in the U.S. Women’s Open. Now an eleven-time winner on the tour, she has seen many come and go in the sport.

But the onset of the LIV Golf Series has changed the dynamics of the sport. Once considered strictly as a solo event, the rebel league has formed teams of four that play against each other in a team-based competition.

Many consider it to be a breakaway from the age-old golf rules. But what does Thompson make of it? Considering her affinity towards the Solheim Cup, the premier golf tournament between the best players from Europe and the USA, the 28-year-old was appreciative of the distinct experience.
