Stacy Lewis Wins Season’s First Major
by Iver Maple on April 4, 2011
Stacy captured her first LPGA tour victory in style. It was the first major of the year and she defeated the number-one ranked player in the world while doing it. At the Nabisco Championship in Rancho Mirage, California, Lewis proved that power is alive and well on the PGA Tour by averaging over 280 yards per drive with her JPX-800 driver and proficiently utilizing her new JPX-800 PRO irons, Mizuno fairway wood, hybrid, and MP T-11 wedges.
Stacy was dominant in the final round, erasing an early two-stroke deficit to tournament champion and world #1, Yani Tseng. She went “yard for yard” with Tseng, as she was able to battle gusty wind conditions with long and precise iron play with her JPX-800 PROS, which she put in her bag for the first time just before the tournament. Lewis punctuated an incredible back nine by making an improbable 20-foot par putt on the 17th, virtually sealing the victory.
Stacy Lewis is now officially one of the brightest young stars on the LPGA Tour, and with her unmatched iron play, length off the tee, and amazing short game, she is truly the complete package.
