It was “V” is for Victory as far as Stacey Lewis’s shot upon marvelous shot was concerned. The girl had spunk and she sure showed the world what she had in the way of sportswoman spirit.
Her six shot winning combination landed her at the ninth level on the LPGA tour in 2014. She won over Korean wonder Meena Lee who had to play second fiddle to Stacey.
As for the Yank Michelle Wie, she clocked in at number three. A South Korean named Choi Na-Yeon and the American Kim Kaufman took up the fourth position jointly.
This triumph has allowed Stacey to displace Lydia Ko and become the number two player among females on a worldwide level. There was a time when she was stuck at number three but those days have long passed her by. She is all dressed for success.
"Making par on 15 was huge," said Lewis, who stuck her third shot there three feet from the pin. "After hitting what I thought was a good tee shot and then, you know, going in the water, but still making par, I mean that just kind of summarized the day."
Stacey, who is a Texan, said that it was such an amazing feeling to win this tournament on her home turf. She had never felt so positive or good as she currently did about the whole situation. And to celebrate the winning streak with her family and friends was pure pleasure.
"It's awesome," said Lewis, a Texas native who celebrated with friends and family. "It's relief more than anything. I've been so close the last few months, you know, maybe if I win one of those, I don’t get it done here. So I think it was all meant to be. Just to be here with my family."
According to Lewis, she just sort of chose a particular goal to focus upon and after that it was a state of flow that overtook her consciousness.
Lewis has shown a display of strength and courage that has not been seen on the golf links before since two years ago. That was when a South Korean Shin Jiyai made the ball go into hole after hole.
Stacey spoke of how she had always wanted to win on a subconscious level and the small goals which she tried to accomplish ultimately added up to make the present victory possible. It just goes to prove that through hard work and honest dedication anyone can win at anything.
