Stacy Lewis shot a final round 72 to win the Women's British Open across the blustery Old Course at St. Andrews this weekend. Trailing the leaders deep into the final nine holes, Lewis made birdie three on the famed road hole to reach 7-under par. Her five iron approach into the green settled four feet from the hole. Lewis described this shot as, "one of the best of my career...I was trying to hit it 160 yards in the air. It worked out perfectly."
Heading to the 18th, Lewis told her caddy she would need one more birdie to assure her the win. Lewis' drive left her 40 yards short of the green. Electing to putt the ball, Lewis rolled it through the "Valley of Sin" to about 20 feet past the hole. She made the come-backer for birdie to post eight under par for the tournament. The eight under total was enough, as all competitors fell victim to the brutal winds whipping across the historic Old Course, giving Lewis a two stroke victory.
"It all happened so fast at the end. You're afraid for every shot, and all of a sudden you make a couple of birdies and it's over," said Lewis of her final nine on the Old Course. This is Lewis' second Major victory and third win of 2013.
Lewis opted for the DryJoys Sport golf shoes and a FJ StaSof glove during her Championship performance.

Being no stranger to the big stage, 2011 Fedex Cup Champion Bill Haas found victory at the always-daunting Congressional Country Club.
Beginning the day in a four way tie for first place, Haas knew he could not just back into the title. Haas made an early birdie at the second before giving a stroke back to par at the 5th.
Even par for the day heading into the 8th, Haas rolled in a 12 foot birdie to reach 8 under for the tourney. On the following hole, Haas hit another brilliant approach setting up another birdie. Then on the treacherous par 3 tenth, Haas rolled in his third consecutive birdie to take a two shot lead over fellow FJ Staffer Roberto Castro.
Castro stuck with Haas over the back nine but could not chip away at his lead. Haas led by at least two over the entire back nine and calmly rolled in a three foot putt for par at the last to take home the title.
"I just kept the ball in front of me,'' Haas said. "Nothing too crazy.'' Always humble, Haas adds a fifth PGA Tour win to his record and moves to 7th in the 2013 Fedex Cup race.
Haas relied on the lightweight stability of his FJ Sport golf shoes throughout the week.
