Stacy Lewis may not have had the performance she wanted as the No. 1 golfer in the season’s first major, but she not letting a 1-under finish to take a tie for 32nd get her down about her new position on Tour. She still has a lot to gloat about.
“Just a lot of events to play still,” said Lewis of what she’s looking forward to in 2013. “I've won twice already and just kind of gotten off to a really good start, so I'm excited. We still have four majors left, and Solheim is probably even a higher importance than those majors. We've got a lot of good stuff coming this year.”
With the added attention and media opportunities, Lewis won’t have a lot of downtime during the off-week. She heads to the Masters to get recognition as the 2012 Player of the Year from the Golf Writers Association of America, and making a pit stop in Atlanta to appear on CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, M.D. show. She says it’s been quite the adjustment handling all the attention.
“It's been crazy,” said Lewis. “I expected to get the attention at the tournaments and at the course, but I've been surprised at things off the course, just going into a Walgreen's or a CVS and getting recognized, it's kind of surprising, so it's definitely been a little bit of an adjustment.”
