Studying Wie


OAKMONT, Pa. – Alexis Thompson's father was among the most studious spectators in the gallery when Michelle Wie teed off early today at the U.S. Women's Open.

Scott Thompson will be caddying for Lexi, the 15-year-old from Coral Springs, in the afternoon. Lexi is playing her fourth U.S. Women's Open, her first as a pro. She is almost as long as Wie.

Scott was paying attention when Wie led off with 3-wood at her first hole, No. 10.

'Lexi's been hitting driver there in practice and getting into trouble,' Scott said.
