NAPLES, Fla. — Lexi Thompson is again to a spot where she’s received the Race to the CME World and also won the precise CME Group Tour Championship. And she’s bought yet another relationship to the get — her brother Curtis is her caddie this 7 days.
“It feels wonderful to be back,” she reported. “Unfortunately it is a great deal unique this 12 months not getting my entire 20 group of spouse and children members and everyone, but at least we’re actively playing, and it’s awesome to be just back in Naples participating in in this article.”
Thompson’s mom and dad are right here, and her pet dog, Leo.
The make-up is diverse than very last week at the U.S. Women’s Open, when she had Bryson DeChambeau’s caddie, Tim Tucker, on the bag.
“It was great to have Tim on the bag,” she said. “He’s an incredible man, a ton of calculations out there. He does his do the job. He just puts the time on the golf course. That’s all we want from a caddie.
“We experienced a superior time, like I said, I didn’t play nicely at all. It was fantastic to have him assist me out there, and it’s wonderful to have my brother out this week.”
Household sport for Henderson
Canada’s Brooke Henderson has ended up expending a lot of her time at her Southwest Florida condo, partly thanks to the coronavirus travel restrictions, and partly due to the climate listed here.
“I went home to Canada early in the spring when it was the full lockdown,” Henderson mentioned. “Since I have been again out on tour, most months off I’ve been spending in this article in Southwest Florida. Just less difficult to observe, a good deal hotter, a whole lot greater conditions. So I have been capable to expend a truthful total of time right here the previous couple months of it’s been seriously awesome.”
Henderson is the lone Southwest Florida connection playing considering the fact that Popov did not qualify or get a sponsor invitation.
