Stacy Lewis plays a tee shot at the third hole during the fourth round of the 2012 Navistar LPGA Classic at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Senator Course at Capitol Hill on September 23, 2012 in Prattville, Alabama.
Stacy Lewis had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week moving up one spots to No. 2 after winning the Navistar LPGA Classic. Lewis started slow, but finished strong on Sunday to claim her third victory of the season.
The 27-year-old Texan carded a final-round 69 to edge defending champion Lexi Thompson by two shots and complete the “Alabama Slam” with victories this season at the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic and today in Prattville. The win is significant for Lewis, who now takes a 56 point lead in the Rolex Player of the Year race in her bid to become the first American since Beth Daniel in 1994 to claim the honor.
Lexi Thompson moved up three spots to No. 22 with her second place finish this week.
