They're right. The LPGA landscape is going to change dramatically as Lexi joins the tour in 2012. She has the length of Wie, the accuracy of Ai Miyazato and wedge play that is as good as anyone, not to mention inside 25 feet she is an amazing putter. Yani is there at 23, Lexi is coming on like a train at 16. Multiple wins, multiple majors, I think she has the potential to dominate the tour the way Tiger did at his best, the sway Annika and Lorena did at their best. Starting so much younger, this prodigy has the opportunity to set record upon record. All with as winning a personality as one could hope for in a teenager, humble, confident and grateful. I look forward to watching her pile up victories for a very long time.

I doubt that will be an issue with Lexi not only does she have her priorities straight, her parents certainly seem to as well. And her dad is a pretty darn good caddy. I hear she will opt for a professional caddy later but so far they have been a very good combination. Must help steady her too, having her dad to talk as she goes through a round.
