MOBILE – LPGA stars Lexi Thompson and Karlin Beck visited with pediatric patients at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital prior to the recent Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. As part of their Mobile Bay Community Day, Thompson and Beck offered some putting pointers to enthusiastic youngsters.

“For more than 300 years, Mobile has been known for its caring spirit,” said LPGA spokesman Bill Lang. “Lexi and Karlin wanted to witness the care and compassion being offered today here at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital.”

USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital regularly features visits from sports stars as part of the hospital’s “distraction therapy” program for pediatric patients.
