LPGA: Stacey Lewis wins 2014 ShopRite LPGA Classic

Stacy Lewis claimed her 10th career LPGA Tour win.  With a six-shot victory at the ShopRite LPGA Classic Presented by Acer. Lewis shot a final-round 67 to push her three-day total to 16-under par, one shot shy of the tournament record. Fellow American Christina Kim finished runner-up at 10-under par.  Lewis  becomes just the fourth multi-winner of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, joining Juli Inkster (1986, 1988), Betsy King (1987, 1995, 2001) and Annika Sorenstam (1998, 2002, 2005) as players to have won the event twice.

With her victory, Stacy is projected to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings, ending Inbee Park’s 59-week reign at No. 1. Lewis held the top spot for four weeks in 2013.

“It feels great,” Lewis said. “I feel like I’ve played a lot of good, consistent golf over the last year and I felt like I deserve to be here. I didn’t feel like I stumbled into it.”

Lewis finished at 16-under 197 on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club and earned $225,000 for her second victory of the year and 10th overall. Also the 2012 winner at Seaview, she won the North Texas LPGA Shootout last month after finishing second six times in her previous 16 events since winning the Women’s British Open in August.
