Lexi Thompson will be spending her prom night pretty much like any other high school student.
Except that the 17-year-old golf sensation, wearing a dress chosen with a Hollywood stylist, will be followed by a camera crew from E! Entertainment Television and accompanied by a date she chose through a nationwide online contest.
"It's going to be a lot of fun," said Thompson, whose online search was limited to military veterans who are part of the group Wounded Warriors.
After more than 100 entries, Thompson chose 20-year-old Naperville, Ill., resident Mark Scott, a lance corporal in the U.S. Marine Active Reserve who received a Purple Heart in Afghanistan. He got an all-expenses-paid, two-day trip to South Florida for the festivities.
