As the first city on the worldwide series, Tampa will provide a stern test for any golfer looking to take the crown – least of all due to the fearsome Lexi Thompson’s desire to win once again in her home state.  

 

On kickstarting the 2024 series in Tampa, Lexi Thompson said: "With the Aramco Team Series returning to Florida this year, it was a no-brainer to put myself in contention for the event. It’s always great to be able to compete at home with that local support, especially to do so in such a unique tournament that has so much collaborative spirit.

 

“I’m going to head out there with my eyes on the trophy. To win at home on the Aramco Team Series would undoubtedly be a real highlight for me. To be a part of an event that not only celebrates skill but also champions women’s golf, at home and beyond, is truly special.”
