Last year was an interesting one for Lexi Thompson. In her first 10 events of 2023, Thompson missed eight cuts, including a stretch of five straight from the U.S. Women’s Open to the Portland Classic.
But something clicked after leaving the Pacific Northwest.
Thompson finished T-19 (Kroger Queen City Championship), T-8 (Walmart NW Arkansas Championship), 5th (The Ascendant LPGA) and T-7 (The Annika) over her final four official LPGA starts of the year. At the Solheim Cup, Thompson compiled a 3-1-0 record. She also teamed with Rickie Fowler at the inaugural Grant Thornton Invitational in December and tied for sixth.
Well, after a successful end to 2023, Thompson has hired a new full-time caddie for the upcoming ’24 season.
Lexi’s good run at the end of last year was with Colton on the bag, so will be interesting to see what they do this season. pic.twitter.com/Foaj3QKrKm

Colton Heisey, who was on the bag for Thompson’s last three LPGA starts, will now be looping for the American star full-time.
“I’m super grateful for the opportunity to work with one of the best to ever do it,” Heisey wrote in a post to social media.
