Lexi thanks fans with emotional note after penalty

Lexi Thompson should have, by any measure, walked away with the ANA Inspiration trophy on Sunday night. But because of some combination of bad luck, a slip in concentration, and a pedant fan on a mission, she was hit with a four-stroke penalty during her final round after misplacing her ball the day before. She fought her way into a playoff, anyway, but succumbed to So Yeon Ryu on the first extra hole.

She handled herself with such class throughout, and on her official Instagram account after the loss, she thanked fans for all their support.
