She’s The One: Stacy Lewis Wins ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer, Reclaims World #1

Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. With a commanding 6 shot victory, Stacy Lewis not only won the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer, but also reclaimed the world #1 ranking. With her strong play over the last 12 months combined with Inbee Park falling off of last year’s record Major pace, it seemed inevitable that Stacy (or perhaps Lydia Ko) would eventually unseat Inbee from the top of the mountain. Stacy made sure that would happen Sunday, building a 16-under overall score through 11 holes. She would give a shot back on 12, but Christina Kim never was closer than 2 shots the rest of the way. Lewis finished with a 6-birdie 2-bogey 4-under 67 (par is 71 for this event) to finished at 16-under for her 10th LPGA victory. I have nothing but respect for Inbee Park, but this is what the sport needs. The player who is playing the best is now officially #1. If Inbee or anybody else were having the last 8 to 12 months that Stacy has been having, I would say the same thing about that player deserving the top spot. Although, were it anybody else currently on tour, I couldn’t do what I’m about to…what I do every time Stacy wins. Woooooooo. Pig-SOOEY! Woooooooo. Pig-SOOEY! Woooooooo. Pig-SOOEY! RAZORBACKS!

I was happy and disappointed by Christina Kim’s tournament. I was delighted…and always am…to see Christina in the mix. She adds verve and color to what can sometimes be staid proceedings. I’d love to see her back competing for titles and a fixture on tour. My only disappointment was that she was 1-over for the day and ended her round with a double-bogey. She deserved better for the great tournament she had. Hopefully, she’ll walk away seeing the positive and let that propel her to more success in the coming weeks, months and hopefully, years. I’m cheering for her. The following video is from after her second round performance.
