Recently Lexi Thompson, the LPGA Tour's youngest winner (at 16; she's now 17), asked members of the military age 18 to 20 to post to her Facebook page explaining why she should pick one of them as her prom date.

Now Thompson has made a choice: United States Marine Corps wounded warrior and Purple Heart recipient Lance Corporal Mark Scott, of Naperville, Ill., a 20-year-old reservist who was among 100-plus servicemen to send Thompson their stories (all of them can be viewed here).

Scott will be flown to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for the May 18 event, which Thompson will live tweet (@Lexi).
