Lexi Thompson returns to the Alabama course where she became the LPGA Tour's youngest winner. The Florida teenager will try for a repeat win at this week's Navistar LPGA Classic on The Senator Course at Capitol Hill. Thompson says it ''feels amazing to be back here.'' She was 16 when she won by five strokes on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail course a year ago. Lydia Ko, a 15-year-old amateur from New Zealand, broke her age record last month in the Canadian Women's Open. Thompson has had two solid performances after failing to survive three straight cuts. Some of the top-ranked players are skipping the event, including Women's British Open champion Jiyai Shin. Only four of the top 10 are playing, including No. 3 Stacy Lewis.
