With the Women’s U.S. Open right around the corner, one name will always stand out in the field. Stacy Lewis, the world no.1 ranked LPGA Tour golfer who shortly lost her no.1 rank when Inbee Park was playing out her mind winning three out of five major championships during the 2013 season, is now on top of the world again and is not only the best golfer on the LPGA Tour, but the best golfer in the world, period, any tour. The only player close to her level on any tour is the aforementioned Inbee Park. Although Inbee is a terrific player, she seems to have trouble on shorter putts. Stacy is a very good putter and is extremely dangerous and unstoppable once she gets on a streak. No other player on any Tour can do that. You don’t see players on the PGA, Champions, or Web.com Tour be as streaky as she is and although they’re great players, what Stacy does is just unreal. If Stacy gets at least four or five birdies in a row, it’s game over.
Not only that, she’s a great ball striker. She’s third on the LPGA in GIR (Greens in Regulation). Heck, she’s good at every freakin’ thing. She’s top five on the LPGA in multiple categories and she’s no.1 in putting, scoring average, and birdies. She’s also 16th in driving distance so she can pound the ball as well. She has 10 career victories and two major titles. She was the one who stopped Inbee’s unbelievable performance last year when she won the Women’s British Open to end Inbee’s chances of being the first golfer ever of any tour to complete the grand slam. Although Inbee currently has more majors than Stacy but Stacy is just playing out her mind and has been the most consistent golfer in the world by far.
Ever since she won the Kraft Nabisco Championship back in 2011, she’s been a monster in golf ranking 1st in several categories every year for the past three years. Inbee had one of the top five greatest seasons in golf history in 2013 but Stacy has just been a consistent machine despite losing her top rank for a while and now she reigns supreme again. Both herself and Inbee have already solidified themselves as future hall of famers but right now, Stacy Lewis is not only the Queen of the LPGA, but the Queen of golf. It’s her sport right now, she owns it and her dominance isn’t going to stop anytime soon, this is just the beginning. She’s the pinnacle of the sport right now and it’s something we have to appreciate while we can instead of wondering who the best player is right now when the answer is obvious. Stacy Lewis is golf.
