“I know he’s good” – Lexi Thompson exudes confidence in new partner Maverick McNealy ahead of 2022 QBE Shootout

Lexi Thompson is set to play alongside rookie Maverick McNealy in the 2022 QBE Shootout. The LPGA star, returning for a sixth time at the event, has now exuded confidence in her new partner. Speaking after their first meeting at the Tiburon Golf Club, Florida, on Wednesday, Thompson said that McNealy was “good.”



Thompson, who competed there just last month at the LPGA season-ending CME Group Tour Championship, came into the event as one of the only two LPGA stars. Having won the CME at Tiburon in 2018, the 27-year-old will look to put in a strong performance alongside the rookie.


She went on to laud the PGA and LPGA Tours’ vision to execute the mixed-team event. Speaking ahead of the QBE Shootout, Thompson said that the mixed event would be “great” for the sport.

The 11-time LPGA winner said:

“Golf being such an individual sport. We want more team events but definitely mixed women’s and men’s. I think it will be great for the game of golf. I think team events bring a lot bigger fan base. I think people absolutely love watching us play and fist pump and be there for each other.”
