A four-time LPGA Tour winner this season, Stacy Lewis
was named LPGA Rolex Player of the Year. Ranked No. 2 in the world, Lewis is the first American
player to receive the award since Beth Daniel in 1994.
Lewis played in eight AJGA tournaments
during the 2001 and 2002 seasons. Her junior career was highlighted by a T4
finish at the 2002 Aaron’s / Bob Estes Abilene Junior and a seventh-place
finish at the 2002 Junior All-Star at Colonial.
This year, Lewis returned to the
AJGA as a tournament host, lending her name to the KPMG
Stacy Lewis Junior Open held at Bella Vista Village in Bella Vista, Ark.
“I got a call from the city of
Bentonville asking if I would be willing to put my name on a tournament,” Lewis
said. “I’m all about creating opportunities for juniors to play. The more
tournaments they play in, the better.”
Before turning pro in 2008, Lewis
played at the University of Arkansas where she was a four-time All-American and
was named SEC Freshman of the Year in 2005.
