MOBILE, ALA. (AP) - Lexi Thompson says she learned a lot from her last visit to Mobile.

Thompson was tied for the lead heading into the final round of last year’s LPGA tournament on the Crossings Course at Magnolia Grove. She wound up 19th after a closing 78.

Thompson is back for the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic starting Thursday.

Thompson says she “wouldn’t change that Sunday for anything” because of how much she learned from her mistakes. Maria Hjorth was the winner.

Thompson had an entirely different experience in her next Alabama event. She won the Navistar LPGA Classic by five strokes in September to become the youngest LPGA tournament winner at age 16.

Hjorth is trying to rebound from an early season slump.
