Beth Ann Baldry reports on Stacy Lewis' RR Donnelly win, improbable in so many ways, including Lewis unseating Yani Tseng atop the world rankings.
It was quite a 24-hour swing for Lewis, who found out after Saturday’s round that she had incurred a two-stroke penalty under Rule 13-4 after Wilson tested the surface of a fairway bunker on No. 16 with his feet. It widened Lewis’ deficit behind Miyazato to four, and left Wilson, a caddie of 21 years and big brother to Stacy, absolutely gutted.
“It’s a huge weight,” Wilson said after the victory. “I do everything I can to get her into the winner’s circle. ... It was devastating.”
Lewis even thanked the viewer who called in her Saturday violation. Take that, PGA Tour whiners!
