I’m certainly excited for Lexi. I think she’s in a really good place with her game as we saw. You know, I got to see it up close at the Solheim Cup. And I think the rest of the world got to see it, whether it was taking on the guys in Vegas, or challenging at Pelican. And, you know, it’s fun to watch her, as always, at Grant Thornton as well.

I don’t know, she just seems to have found something in her golf swing. I mean, if you look at her stats, certainly her ball-striking was not as strong this past year as it typically is. I mean, she’s almost always near the top if not the best iron player on tour, statistically, and you know, that that wasn’t the case last year.

That was caused by a little bit of poor driving, you know, getting yourself out of position off the tee. That just put a lot of pressure on other parts of her game, and it’s when I was watching her at Solheim in person that she just looked really smooth. And she looks just so much more confident. It’s a tough sport when you don’t feel like you can get off the tee as well as you would like. Especially when that’s always been such a strength and then you start to steer, and I didn’t see that at all. I didn’t see any steering in that fourth quarter last year, which was great.
