Lexi Thompson: “I need to have a life”

After a particularly grueling stretch, Thompson, arguably the face of the LPGA Tour, was understandably worn down. She took a month-long break from the game and, really, the demands of her celebrity. The 23-year-old skipped last month’s Ricoh Women’s British Open. She’ll return to competition at this week’s Indy Women in Tech Championship. “I’m not just a robot out here,” she told reporters ahead of the tournament. “I need to have a life.” Thompson also told reporters she took a trip with friends and shelved her golf clubs for two weeks. – TO
