Lewis won the coveted award for Best Female Golfer but had to watch the award on TV instead of receiving it in person in Los Angeles.
“You saw it on TV and I would have liked to go to the actual awards but I’ve got more important things here,” Lewis said.
Lewis won the award through a fan vote that was held on ESPN’s website. Her strong 2012 campaign included four wins and 16 top-ten finishes which won her the Rolex Player of the Year award.
Last night’s award was Lewis’ first ESPY but will most likely not be her last.
“It was up for grabs,” Lewis said. “It’s cool to get my first one.”
