Her words carried clout even if her stature and voice suggested otherwise. A year ago at this time, Stacy Lewis was a good LPGA player. Check that, she was a great one. It just felt like no one really noticed.
"I certainly have felt like I've been one of the best players in the world, and even over the last year I felt like I have been but haven't gotten the recognition," said Lewis at a revealing U.S. Women's Open press conference last July. "When everyone talks about the top American players, they always talk about Paula (Creamer) and Cristie (Kerr), and I was never thrown into the mix. My goal coming into this year was to get my name in that mix and get people to see that I am one of the top American players, and that's really motivated me over the last year."
