You should know that Stacy Lewis had an impressive week in Galloway Township. She managed 6 stroke and claimed her 10th victory in the LPGA. She won at the ShopRite LPGA Classic Presented by Acer. This victory will help her to win Rolex Player of the Year (for the second time). This week, she will be defending her title at the Hotel Golf Club’s Bay Course and Stockton Seaview. Her opponents are strong and all of them are good players, so this will be a serious mission.
The event for this week is a 54 hole event with a value of $1.5 million. It dates from 1986. At that time, Juli Inkster, a Hall of Famer won her first ShopRite title. She is competing this week as well. Other golfers that will be competing in this week’s event are: Sei Young Kim, Inbee Park, Minjee Lee, Cristie Kerr, Hyo Joo Kim, Amy Yang, Brittany Lincicome and Na Yeon Choi. Also, previous winners of the ShopRite event are coming.
They are: Angela Stanford (2003), Ai Miyazato (2010) and Karrie Webb (2013). Other players you will be able to see this week are: Michelle Wie (trying to return after a hip injury), Suzann Pettersen, Morgan Pressel, Paula Creamer, Shanshan Feng, Laura Davies, Brooke Henderson, Lexi Thompson and Anna Nordqvist (Hall of Famer). Lewis is an excellent player, so beating her isn’t easy mission. The winner (two-time winner) of the Rolex Player of the Year won 2 of 3 last staggings. Her 16 under mark from the last year was one of the impressive achievements.
