Lexi Thompson Captures 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship; Charley Hull T7th
 Print

LET member Lexi Thompson started her day with a birdie and didn’t look back as she fired a bogey-free 68, the low round of the day, to capture a three-shot victory over Michelle Wie at the 2014 Kraft Nabsico Championship.

Lexi Thompson started her day with a birdie and didn’t look back as she fired a bogey-free 68, the low round of the day, to capture a three-shot victory over Michelle Wie at the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship.

“Well, it was an amazing day,” Thompson said. “Starting off with a birdie definitely helped. But just hitting that first tee shot obviously a little nervous, but it was definitely what I’ve been practicing for, what I live for, to play under that pressure and to get a major win under my belt, especially the Kraft Nabisco. It’s such a huge honor to win this tournament.”

With the win Thompson captured her first-career major becoming the second-youngest player to win a major championship in the process.

“It’s a great feeling. This is what I’ve worked so hard for,” Thompson said. “This was one of my goals coming into the year, to win a major. I’ve always seen myself winning a Kraft Nabisco. It’s such a huge honor with all the history behind the tournament. It’s just a dream come true.”

Thompson’s play drew praise from the golf world including her playing partner and tournament runner-up Michelle Wie.

“(Lexi) played amazing today. She played probably the best I’ve ever seen her play. She hit the ball so well. She made everything. It was just hard to catch up to her all day today, but I’m really happy for her. I’m really proud of her,” Wie stated.

WIE comes up just short
Michelle Wie shot a final round 71 to finish the tournament at -11 in solo second, her best finish in a major championship.

“You know, it was a lot of fun playing in contention, being in the final group,” Wie said. “It was nice to be in the final group at Kraft again. I think it’s a sign. I think I’m getting close. I think I can get a lot of confidence from this week. I think I’m improving and improving, and I think getting second at a major, I think it means that I’m close, and I’m really proud of myself, and I’m really excited for the upcoming events. There’s four more majors left this year, and I’m just really proud of myself, and I just want to keep improving a little bit every day.”

Low Amateur
Minjee Lee (E) had a tough start to the day with a double bogey, birdie, bogey on the first three holes, but it all evened out over the remainder of the round.

“I birdied the ninth, so it was like, okay, I’m coming back.” Lee said. “That was good, and then I made a couple birdies coming in, so just finished with even.”

Overall, Lee walked away from her first appearance at the Kraft Nabisco Championship satisfied with her performance and the experience in general.

“It was such a great week. I had a great time, like just the atmosphere and having the crowds, and it was just really good. I haven’t experienced this before, so it was really good.”

Her one disappointment in the week was not being able to play alongside one of the players she has long watched from afar.

“I really wanted to play with Suzann (Pettersen), but she didn’t play this week unfortunately.” Lee said. “Just when I watched TV and stuff, she’s always been like my favorite. I think she’s just really determined, and we can see that definitely. Just her game is great.”
