GOLF: Give Lexi the trophy – Phil

AUGUSTA (AFP) – Phil Mickelson called for Lexi Thompson to be awarded the LPGA’s ANA Inspiration title despite a rules violation discovered by a television viewer that led to a four-stroke penalty.

Mickelson, a five-time major winner seeking his fourth green jacket when the year’s first men’s major tournament opens Thursday, said the decision to inflict the punishment for a day-old violation should be reversed.
