Stacy Lewis won the North Texas LPGA Shootout Presented by JTBC with a four round total of 16 under par, 6 clear of her nearest competitor.
Starting the day in a tie for the lead, Lewis shot a blazing 64 to runaway from the field.
Lewis stated of her stellar performance post round, "I kind of have these mini goals in the back of my mind, like a bogey free tournament or a certain number of putts, just kind of things that aren’t necessarily score related. So one of them was kind of taking a tournament and running away with it, and that’s what I’ve wanted to do it now for a year. So to be so close the last few weeks and then to come out and shoot 64, I mean I don’t even know what to say. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do, and just to do it here at home, in front of all these fans was pretty cool.”
This is Stacy's 9th career win and first of the 2014 season.
She relied on DryJoys Boa golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove.
