Watch: Lexi drives first hole of Solheim Cup

RSS

First-tee jitters? If Lexi Thompson had any, she unleashed them in her opening tee shot at the Solheim Cup.

Playing in the first foursomes match, Mel Reid hit the opening tee shot of the competition and nearly drove the green on the short par-4 first. Thompson then did her better, running her 3-wood tee shot onto the putting surface.

Thompson’s playing partner Cristie Kerr converted the 10-foot eagle putt to give the U.S. an immediate 1-up lead.
