Irrelevant really. My pure speculative comment was that she’s taking time away and her fairly recent escapades with golf may have a large role in this. She may feel that she let this victim role go to far and her conscience is telling her she wishes she had just owned up to her ‘accident’ and said she honors golf and respects the field and accepts the penalty and wishes her fans would do the same. And I’m purely speculating this but that may take a toll on her young self.

Now you are way off.

I am trying to keep the two big V members here straight. @Vinsk is obsessed with Bernhard, and @Valleygolfer is with Lexi. I think that's it. 😛

Lexi has parted ways with her Caddie. Not many details. Also included this post:

  • lexi

    So this is a pretty personal post and some people might think it’s stupid or that I’m crazy but I’m going to share it anyway.... one of the biggest issues I’ve gone through is my self image/ body confidence. When I was really young, I just ate what I wanted to, didn’t care about fitness at all or what I weighed. Then as I slowly got into fitness seeing the results, I started getting crazy about it, seeing the attention I was getting, doing certain photo shoots I never thought I would. I was putting my body through brutal workouts twice a day not really eating because I thought that’s the way I would lose weight and weighing myself constantly. I would compare my self to these stick thin or fitness models on Instagram, tearing myself down because I didn’t have the toned stomach or the big butt. As a girl I know body confidence is a huge part of life and what we all go through. You think you’ll be happy once you get this certain body? But will you really be? Maybe more confident and by doing it the right way is how u need to go about it. The only way you’ll ever be truly happy though is if you love yourself first. But what I want to share is that your not alone in any of your struggles. And what I’ve learned is that I’m not going to deprive myself in the one life I get to live, I’m going to enjoy life and my food . You should never compare your body to others it’s a never ending battle of being miserable trust me. Your body is your body, it is beautiful so embrace it ❤️

Lol. True. People get real touchy when the word 'millennial' is used. But..yeah. I know I don't know what's going on in her life. But really, she's young and getting to make a living playing golf. And making a lot more than most people her age. She has a whole hell of a lot to be grateful for. And there are millions out there who put in the same effort as she to have a more satisfying body and get a fraction of the results she has. Like I said, I don't know the details of her personal life and everybody has their troubles. But I do have a bit of a hard time feeling much sorrow for her. Maybe that's unfair but I just don't think she's got it as bad as she wants people to think she has.

Yea I obviously agree. I think she just wants to eat Doritos and let herself go and not hear any shit about it...

Lol! That’s awesome. So odd she states she has a ‘body image issue’ yet never fails to post numerous pics of herself striking poses. I guess she expects us to feel how painful it is for her to see Blair, Paige and Paulina smoke showing the slide shows while she’s just doing the best she can. I’m just not really a fan of hers at all.

I don’t think that having body image issues and posting an occasional bikini pic are at odds. You don’t have to be a fan to have some sympathy here.

I hope she sorts this out.

If you've had a daughter, or other female family member, with serious body image issues, I don't think you'd say this. Not saying that Lexi has serious issues, but these issues can be very serious and even deadly.

This is true. However I do feel those who suffer from body image issues who are obese, cystic acne, eczema, psoriasis, losing their hair can develop serious issues and it can be deadly as you said. I'm just saying, and perhaps unfairly, that Lexi has a wonderful support system (as she's said), she's wealthy, she's young, successful, and has an outstanding physical, athletic body. I'm being crass in that I suspect her 'issue' is more of a 'I deserve to have the best and it's not fair I don't look like those models' millennial attitude. I obviously would never wish any ill will on anyone who suffers from a true case of this. Lexi played the victim as we all know. I am suspect of her 'issue' is all I'm saying.

Let's be careful here. Anorexia is a real disease that has claimed many lives, some very successful and some very poor. I'm not sure if she has that issue, but her comments lead me to guess that she may have been heading down that road,.

Harsh viewpoints from @Vinsk and @Valleygolfer . I wish her strenght with her battle. Looks like she is unhappy to say the least. Never underestimate what the mind does to your mental health.

Yes I was harsh and apologize. I sometimes vent my frustrations here and it wasn’t fair I speculated her problem to be baseless. @boogielicious You’re right. That is a possibility based on what she has said. Anyway, sorry guys. It was too much.

    • With Sergio they played the whites, saying that they wanted a challenge and it would be too easy from the reds. If Bryson had played with Sergio on this course and this day instead of DT then they'd have gone quite a lot lower.
    • Day 8: did a stack session.
    • Gotcha. Don't remember it being that short in Paige episode (the only other one I watched in it's entirety), but to be fair I wasn't paying close attention to the hole lengths. 😜
    • Probably relative to the other courses he has played in the break 50 series. He's done them all from the front tees.
    • So this wasn't a bad watch. For a guy pushing age 80 he strikes the ball well. I mean, if I am doing what he is doing 30 years from now, count me in. Imma pass on that putting stroke though.... wow. That's saying something with my putting skills. Not making fun of it but it's almost like he had to keep the putter from falling out of his hands after impact every time. Not sure if that's a recent thing but it plays out like some neurological condition.   BDC claims 'it's a hard course' to break 50, and then proceed to play putt-putt tees with 320-yard par 5s.. lol. Dood drove almost every par 5 from the tee. Anyway, not exactly the 'greatest round of golf that has ever been played' as expectedly self-advertised by 45, but I've certainly seen worse by far.
