Lewis’ Strong Play Using JPX Irons and MP Wedges Secures Second LPGA Tour Victory
Mizuno Brand Ambassador Stacy Lewis moved to number one in the Rolex Rankings by capturing her second LPGA tour victory of the season with a decisive performance at the Shoprite Classic. Utilizing Mizuno’s JPX-825 Pro Irons, a JPX-825 Hybrid, MP-650 3-wood and MP T-11 wedges, Lewis finished at 16-under winning the tournament by six strokes joining Annika Sorenstam, Julie Inkster and Betsy King as the only multiple winners of the event.
Lewis put on a clinic with her iron and wedge play throughout the weekend, shooting an eight-under 63 on Saturday and final round four-under 67 to finish off a commanding victory and dominant performance.
“Stacy is an unbelievable player at the top of her game so it was only a matter of time before she regained the world’s number one player spot,” said Chuck Couch, Vice President of Product Management, Golf Division for Mizuno USA, Inc. “This is a major accomplish for Stacy. We applaud and congratulate Stacy on her 10th career LPGA Tour victory. Her skills on the golf course continue to improve proving the sky is the limit for her.”
The impact and influence of golf on the LPGA’s new top-ranked player rises above the sport, providing an incredible story beyond the course. Recently, as part of Mizuno’s popular Play Famously campaign, a powerful video, “Golf vs. Scoliosis,” was released showcasing Lewis’ drive and determination to overcome a medical condition that could have sidelined her career before it even started.
