Top-ranked American pro golfer and 12-time winner Lexi Thompson hosted more than 300 fans, sports enthusiasts and local tastemakers on Friday at Topgolf in Miami Gardens to celebrate the release of her new limited edition Red Bull Energy Drink can.

The Coral Springs native also launched her “Lexi Challenge” at Topgolf, giving fans and Topgolf players nationwide an opportunity to win a chance to meet her and attend one of her tournaments.

“It’s a huge honor for me and very special to share the first look at my Red Bull can in South Florida with family and friends around,” said Thompson. “This is where my golf career started with my two older brothers and to be able to celebrate this is very exciting and rewarding.”

Lexi Thompson returns to the LPGA tour Thursday at the Evian Championship in Evian-Les-Bains, France.

“I’m very excited to go over there [France], play well. I definitely want to win, so I’ve been working on my game really hard. To be able to be out there and represent the USA and all of my sponsors on the LPGA Tour is important to me. I love the game and love traveling the world.”
