ST ANDREWS---Stacy Lewis had
another big week at St Andrews and
left with an even bigger prize---a major
championship at the home of golf.
Lewis finished a marathon yesterday
with exquisite birdies on the last two
holes of the Old Course to close with
an even-par 72 and win the Women s
British Open by two shots. It was her
second major on the LPGA Tour, end-
ing a record streak of 10 straight majors
won by Asian players.
The last time the 28-year-old Lewis
was at St Andrews was in 2008 for
the Curtis Cup, and she went 5-0 to
lead the Americans to victory.
This was even sweeter, and it
required no less than her best golf in
conditions so blustery that Lewis was
the only player at par or better in the
last 21 groups. Three shots behind on
the back nine, Na Yeon Choi gave her
a chance with consecutive bogeys, and
Lewis took it from there.
"It s unbelievable," Lewis said. "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
On the par-4 17th, the famous Road
Hole, Lewis drilled a 5-iron that tum-
bled onto the green and settled 3 feet
below the cup for a birdie to reach 7-
under and give her a share of the lead
when Choi three-putted the 14th hole
from about 80 feet.
Walking off the green, Lewis said
she told her caddie, "One more."
A driver left her some 40 yards short
of the green, and the Texan used a
putter to whack the next shot through
the Valley of Sin about 25 feet past the
hole. She made that for another birdie
to post a score at 8-under 280 and see
if anyone could catch her.
Choi, who won the US Women s
Open last year, was trying to salvage
pars to give her a reasonable shot at
birdie on the final hole. It all came
undone on the 17th.
Choi s hybrid from the fairway was
too strong and settled in a clump of
rough, just inches from going down
the slope onto the road. She chipped
to six feet, but pulled the par putt.
When she failed to holed out from the
fairway, Lewis had the title.
Inbee Park s bid to become the first
pro golfer to win four straight majors
in one season ended early---very early.
Park returned to the Old Course first
thing in the morning to resume the
third round, which was suspended Sat-
urday because of 40 mph gusts. In
calm conditions, Park couldn t cut into
a large deficit and shot 74 to fall nine
shots behind. Then, she began the final
round by four-putting for double bogey.
Park closed with rounds of
74-78 and finished 14 shots behind.
"I ve done something amazing this
season," Park said. "I won three straight
majors. I don t know if I can do that
Choi, who had a three-shot lead
with six holes to play, had back-to-
back bogeys from about 80 feet, and
her bogey on the 17th led to a 73. He
tied for second with Hee Young Park,
one of four players who had a share
of the lead at one point in the final
round. Park also had a 73. (AP)
