Lexi Thompson decision expected this week


Alexis Thompson’s family and agents are scheduled to continue talks today with LPGA commissioner Mike Whan over her petition for 12 sponsor exemptions this year, double the allotment current rules allow non-members.

Thompson turns 16 on Feb. 10.

“We've talked throughout the holidays,” Whan said late last week. “They're good people. I like Lexi. I like her parents. I'm excited to know they have a long term strategy with Lexi.'

Bobby Kreusler of Blue Giraffe Sports represents Thompson.

“What they've asked for is different, and doesn't really exist today,' Whan said. 'So we've had dialogue. I don't think Bobby would tell you anything other than we've had dialogue.”

Whan expects to make a decision this week.
