Stacy Lewis Claims Victory at HSBC Women's Champions
Following Her Recent Multi-Year Extension with Mizuno, Lewis Captures Sixth-Career LPGA Title
Norcross, GA – (March 5, 2013) - Mizuno Brand Ambassador Stacy Lewis captured her first LPGA victory of 2013 by one stroke on Sunday, outplaying a charging field to claim the HSBC Women’s Champions in Singapore. The highlight of her round was nearly holing out her second shot on the par-5 7th hole. Using her JPX-825 Hybrid from 200 yards out, Lewis’ shot ended up five inches from the pin, leaving a routine tap-in eagle.
Displaying poise and consistent play all week, Lewis claimed her first title of the season with the help of her Mizuno JPX-825 Pro irons, MP T-11 wedges, JPX-825 hybrid and MP-650 fairway wood. Lewis built a three shot lead, but had to fend off Na Yeon Choi on the final holes to capture the championship. Lewis utilized her JPX-825 Hybrid again on 18, landing her second shot on the back of the green, giving herself a lengthy putt for eagle. All she needed was par after Choi missed a 12-foot birdie putt that could have potentially forced a playoff.
“Coming off an impressive 2012 campaign that saw Lewis win the LPGA Rolex Player of the Year, we congratulate Stacy on her first LPGA victory of the season,” said Dick Lyons, Vice President and General Manager, Mizuno USA Golf. “We are thrilled to support Stacy and are honored that this six-time LPGA champion trusts the performance of Mizuno products.
