Lexi Thompson, USA, wins the inaugural Indy Women In Tech Championship, cruising to a four shot victory at the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course in Indianapolis.
Lexi carded a third and final round -4 under 68 to win the Indy Women In Tech Championship title, with a -19 under par total. Like all winners at Indy, she took a swig of milk and gave the traditional kiss to the bricks that line the track’s finish line and enjoyed getting behind the wheel for a victory lap around the famed 2.5-mile oval, reaching a top speed of 122 mph.
“I’m very happy that it was me.”
“It was such a great week overall and it was a huge honor to be here in Indiana to be able to kiss those bricks. Definitely a memory that I’ll never forget.”
Lydia Ko. New Zealand, was second at -15 under par, a mediocre final round of even par 72, blaming a poor putting performance;
“I just wasn’t putting as well as I did the last few days and that makes a huge difference.”
“When you’re in the final round, final group, you kind of want those putts to drop and unfortunately that wasn’t happening for me.”
“Lexi played great, especially down the stretch.”
“She had some 3-, 4-footers for par and bogey and she was able to knock them all in, so it just shows the confidence that she was playing with.”
“But yeah, I had a great time being in this position.”
Third place went to Minjee Lee from Australia, she carded a final round -5 under 67 to get herself into third on her own at -14 under par for the tournament.
