Three Consecutive Closing-Hole Birdies Puts Lewis Within Reach of 2012 LPGA Tour Player of the Year Honors
Mizuno Brand Ambassador Stacy Lewis captured her LPGA-leading fourth victory of the 2012 season by winning the Mizuno Classic at Kintetsu Kashikojima Country Club in Shima, Japan. Staking her claim atop the short list of 2012 LPGA Player of the Year contenders, Lewis shot an 11-under 205 for the 54-hole event, winning by one stroke. With this latest victory Lewis remains second on Rolex Rankings, the highest ranked American Golfer on the LPGA Tour, and looks to earn LPGA Player of the Year honors, becoming the first American to do so in 18 years.
Displaying the poise and consistency she has shown all year, Lewis secured her fourth title of the season with the help of her Mizuno JPX-800 Pro irons, MP T-11 wedges, MP-650 fairway wood, JPX-825 Hybrid and JPX-800 driver. Lewis started the final round with a seven-shot deficit, but consecutive birdies on the final three holes earned her a thrilling one-shot victory.
“We’d like to congratulate Stacy on her LPGA-leading fourth victory of the season,” said Dick Lyons, Vice President and General Manager, Mizuno USA Golf. “Throughout her ambassadorship with Mizuno, she has been humble and genuine, and we are thrilled to watch her develop into one of the best players on the LPGA Tour.”
