Not everyone was watching the U.S. Open on Friday. Some, including Lexi Thompson, snuck out for a peek at Colorado Golf Club, the site of this year’s Solheim Cup.
At about the time Phil Mickelson was making his only birdie of the day, Thompson was coming within an inch of making an albatross. She posted this picture on her Twitter feed along with the caption, “Almost made my second double-eagle today. Too bad almost doesn’t count.”
You can bet Thompson and rest of her Solheim teammates will be glued to the television this weekend. Merion might be a lot of things – “manipulated” as Zach Johnson put it nicely – but it is not boring.
Nobody in the game will want to miss these final 36 holes.
