Was tough watching Lexi fall apart like that. Was hoping she would come through.

Lexi totally pulled the wrong club on both 17 and 18, either her out her caddie putter in a bad spot…pretty tough to make bogey on 18 with a wedge in your hand

Several players came up way short on 17 in the group just ahead of Lexi, I have to wonder if there was more wind aloft than anyone was noticing on the ground. And if you watched and listened, after the approach on 17 came up short she told her caddie “I hit that well” - they were both surprised to be short. Though her short approaches hurt, her putting on the back nine just got more and more tentative, her putts on 17 and 18 were awful. But I’m sad for her, another great player for whom the mental game holds them back (e.g. Greg Norman). The ones who actually get tougher in the clutch are VERY rare, Woods, Jordan come to mind. Most players do well just to maintain a lead or not falter as much as others in contention, but we do see runaways from time to time - though rarely on tough course/layouts.

Great point about the mental toughness and focus, which was an outstanding attribute of Tiger that you don't see often.

I used to have a tough time rooting for Lexi after she was caught mismarking her ball at the ANA a few years ago, but I thought she built herself back up after that and I'm all for second chances. I was hoping for a big win for her yesterday. This shows that the same things that make the weekend golfers get tentative affect the pros too.
