2 Off the 1st: Lexi Thompson talks, and Ben Crane owes some money

On today's 2 Off the 1st, Ryan Ballengee looks at the top two stories in the world of golf:

  1. Lexi Thompson spoke on Wednesday at the LPGA's Volunteers of America Texas Shootout for the first time since the controversial pair of two-stroke penalties that may well have cost her the ANA Inspiration, the LPGA's first major of the year. What did Thompson say? How will she move on from here?
  2. Ben Crane owes Daniel Berger $6,000 relating to a putting contest ahead of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. We found out about it from journeyman Tom Gillis, who took to Twitter to advance payment on the debt.
