We have our first ace of the Grant Thornton Invitational.
Lexi Thompson stepped to the tee of the par-3 16th hole at Tiburon Golf Club fresh off making a birdie putt on the previous hole. It was her and partner Rickie Fowler’s fourth birdie in five holes.
Thompson wanted more.
She hit her tee shot, a 6-iron from 155 yards, and the ball one hopped before falling into the cup.
Thompson turned around to celebrate with Fowler before high fiving other members of the group. The shot moved the duo to 16 under, and at the time, one shot back of the lead.

What a shot.
