At the U.S. Women's Open in July, Stacy Lewis was overly upset with herself. She can acknowledge that now. At the time, after shooting a final-round 75 and finishing tied for 46th, Lewis looked as if her world had come crashing down.
Now, four months later, she's on top of her world. With a tie for fourth at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday, Lewis wrapped up the LPGA's Rolex Player of the Year award.
And headed into the tour's season-ending tournament, the CME Group Titleholders, Lewis is playing with house money because it's already been such a great season. She could put a little more icing on the cake, however, with her fifth victory of 2012 at the Titleholders, which begins Thursday at the TwinEagles Club in Naples, Fla.
