On October 1st, 2014 UNF's Golf Complex was visited by Alexis "Lexi" Thompson. Lexi's focus in visiting UNF was to bring new life into the world of golf by being a role model to junior golfers. While she visited she shared her story of personal growth as a young woman becoming the youngest professional golfer, expressed the dedication it takes to pursue that dream, demonstrated her shills on both the driving range and putting green, instructed junior golfers, and took time for autographs.
