Stacy Lewis (Women's LoPro and StaSof) won the 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship, holding off world number one and four time major winnner Yani Tseng (Women's DryJoys and StaSof) for the victory. Lewis, in her professional debut, held the 54 hole lead at the 2008 U.S. Women's Open at Interlachen. She finished tied for third. Three years later, she was still winless.
This time, Lewis began the day 2 strokes back of Yani Tseng on a firm blustery day in the LPGA's first major of the year. Lewis played steady on the front and took the lead on the par 5 ninth with a birdie to Tseng's bogey. A clutch birdie and par save on 12 and 17 catapulted her to a final round 69 and a three stroke victory. This is Lewis's first career victory and later said post round, "It doesn't even feel real yet... I'm
still trying to figure out if I actually won, but I played so good
today and I was just proud of the way I hung in there and made some key
putts, especially on 17... I don't think it's quite sunk
