A pic­to­rial re­view of the last 30 days from around the world.

Lexi Thompson walks off the 18th green, as Korean So Yeon Ryu cel­e­brates with her cad­die af­ter Ryu de­feated Thompson in a play­off dur­ing the fi­nal round of the ANA In­spi­ra­tion at Mis­sion Hills Coun­try Club, Cal­i­for­nia. An un­named viewer had emailed into the LPGA on Sun­day af­ter­noon that Thompson had re­placed her ball marker in an er­ro­neous po­si­tion on the 17th green dur­ing the third round­pre­sum­ably af­ter watch­ing re­plays - when Thompson was on the ninth. The ref­er­ees had no choice but to is­sue the sanc­tions, even though it seemed grossly un­fair that the tele­vi­sion au­di­ence knew be­fore the player her­self. The 22-year-old

Amer­i­can was on the way to the 13th tee in the fi­nal round on Sun­day when she was told of the penalty by two of­fi­cials. In that mo­ment, Thompson went from hold­ing a three-shot lead to be­ing one shot be­hind, hav­ing been sanc­tioned two shots for the penalty and an­other two for sign­ing for an in­cor­rect score.
