Lexi Thompson scored a 7-under 64 on day 2 of the Walmart Northwest Arkansas Championship to place herself within range of the title tomorrow. Lexi had a hard time blasting her drives as the course design would only allow her to use her 3 wood and hybrids instead. She was only able to use her driver 3 times or 4 at the most.
Lexi is not only within range of the tournament title but also mathematically within range of the No. 1 ranking potentially unseating Inbee Park who is also playing in the tournament but is currently out of the top 10 after todays round.
Lexi is currently on third place behind Min Jee Lee and japanese superstar Nasa Hataoka who are of Lexi by 2 strokes. For Min Jee and Nasa to hold off a final day push by Lexi for the title, they should be able to come up with their A game tomorrow and hopefully secure the trophy.
