It’s been one ailment after another since she won the U.S. Women’s Open last year. A finger injury. A respiratory infection. She had bursitis in her left hip and withdrew from the Kingsmill Championship in May.

BELMONT, Michigan (AP) — Lexi Thompson made sure she didn’t beat herself — and ended up defeating everyone else.

“I was just trying to be patient,” Thompson said after rallying from four shots back to win the Meijer LPGA Classic by a stroke. “Really, the whole day I was just trying to play my own game,”

The 20-year-old Florida player closed with a 6-under 65 at Blythefield Country Club for her fifth LPGA Tour victory. She won for the first time since the then-Kraft Nabisco Championship last year.

Thompson finished at 18-under 266 and earned $300,000.

“My father wants to retire because we promise, but I don’t know,” Choi said. “We will talk later.”

The 24-year-old South Korean player broke through in her 157th start on the tour, beating compatriot Ha Na Jang with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff at Highland Meadows.
