Galloway, NJ (Sports Network) - Stacy Lewis shot just even-par 71 on Sunday,
but still had a large enough advantage to cruise to a four-stroke victory at
the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
Lewis essentially wrapped up the win during the first two rounds, when she
carded back-to-back six-under 65s. The American carried a six-stroke lead into
Sunday, and none of her competitors could catch up during the third and final
Lewis, who finished the tournament at 12-under par 201, added another victory
to her stellar season. She won the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic at the end of
April, and has recorded seven top-10s overall.
Sunday's victory will push Lewis up to the No. 3 position in the women's world
rankings. She will supplant Cristie Kerr, currently No. 5, as the top-ranked
Katherine Hull (68) took second place at minus-eight, while Mika Miyazato (68)
and Azahara Munoz (69) shared third at seven-under.
