    Lexi lost twice this year to Ariya in tight finishes. She’s a choker, and as far as I’m concerned a cheater.

      I have to disagree most heartedly with you on this. It’s not even a penalty any more thanks to what she went through with that incident. She is not a choker, she’s been a very, very poor putter in the past and has improved immensely…..she his one of the most incredible clutch chip shots coming in……at the 485 yard par five, 17th I believe, nipped it perfect from a tight lie and hit it within two feet, made birdie…..she’s still very, very young, just 22 years old and I believe she will keep getting better and better. I believe you are wrong on both counts.
