Alexis Thompson youngest player of US Open

Alexis, who as a 12-year-old became the youngest player to qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open, will turn pro right after representing the United States in the Curtis Cup amateur event in Massachusetts against Britain and Ireland.

LPGA tournament executive director Tim Erensen said Thompson would compete in the $1.5 million event on the Bay Course at Seaview starting June 18 by a sponsor’s exemption.

“I am looking forward to so many things this coming June,” Alexis said in a statement. “I will represent the United States at the Curtis Cup and then have the opportunity to play at the ShopRite Classic the next week.

“I have played in several LPGA Tour events as an amateur and I am looking forward to making my professional debut that week in Atlantic City.”

Alexis was recently named Golfweek’s 2009 Women’s Amateur Player of the Year and the 2009 Junior Girls’ Player of the Year.

After her precocious debut at the 2007 U.S. Women’s Open, Alexis qualified again the next two years, and was a triple gold medal winner (individual, team, total team) at the Spirit International Amateur Golf Championship, matching the success of Paula Creamer (2203) and Lorena Ochoa (2001).
