COBRA PUMA GOLF athlete Lexi Thompson became the first American to win the Honda LPGA Thailand in the event’s 10-year history over the weekend.
The 21-year-old took command early in the week with an opening round 8-under par, 64 to take the outright lead in round one. Despite scrambling to a second round even par, 72, Thompson cruised on the weekend, posting 64 again on Saturday to take a four stroke lead entering the final round and closing with a 4-under par, 68 to win by six-strokes ahead of In Gee Chun.
In many ways, Thompson put on the best performance of her career this week in Thailand, posting her lowest winning score on Tour at 20-under par for the championship with a six-stroke victory, her largest margin of victory on Tour. Her win in Thailand marks her third victory since July, having won twice in 2015 at the Meijer LPGA Classic and LPGA KEB HanaBank Championship.
England's Charley Hull finished in a tie for 30th place on one under after closing with a one-over 73.
Thompson was putting a new KING LTD Driver in play for the first time this week and it certainly paid off. With her victory, Thompson moves to number three in the Rolex Rankings, becoming the top ranked American in the world.
“I’m using the new COBRA KING LTD Driver this week, and it’s worked out pretty well thus far,” Thompson said. “I’ve been working with the COBRA team for a few months, trying to find the right shaft and settings for me. I think we’ve found something that I’m very comfortable with.”
Thompson relied on her COBRA Golf equipment to help fuel her excellent play and ultimately her win. Her bag includes the all-new KING LTD Driver, just one of a family of products COBRA Golf recently released trumpeting the legendary KING name. Fueled by research in space, the KING LTD driver features a revolutionary SpacePort design that allowed COBRA engineers to strategically position the Center of Gravity delivering the lowest CG driver the company has ever made.
