Alexis Thompson became the youngest winner on the L.P.G.A tour at age 16 at the Navistar L.P.G.A Classic on Sunday.

Thompson reports to the New York Times that the victory was long over due and that she goes into every tournament wanting to win.

After the winning putt, Thompson shared he moment of victory with her father, Scott, who has been her caddy since she turned pro last year at 15.

Julie Inkster, a Hall of Fame member with 31 victories to her name, tells Fox Sports that the win was incredible. "They're just starting younger and they're just so much better,'' commented Inkster.

Thompson accepted her $195,000 winners check with a smile and a simple acceptance of victory.
