A scary future for such a promising young Golf professional, but as we know from previous Scoliosis patients, we are tough cookies and if she can cope with Women's Open Round pressure along with Scoliosis surgery, she is going to be just fine!
Lewis helped the United States win a victory of 13-7 over Great Britain and Ireland, earlier this year, the flawless round that Lewis put in was a round of 67 Saturday on the 6,789-yard, par-73 layout at Interlachen. It was the best round of the day by two strokes and gave her a 54-hole total of 9-under-par 210, one stroke ahead of Paula Creamer, who shot 69, and two strokes ahead of Helen Alfredsson of Sweden and Inbee Park of South Korea.
"Truthfully, I'm not really that surprised," said Lewis, a 2007 graduate of the University of Arkansas, where she was the NCAA Division I individual champion. "I felt like I could play at this level and compete at this level. It was kind of my goal to put myself into contention to win going into the last day. That's kind of what I try to do at every golf tournament."
American golf has been struggling on the International field of late, winning only 6 of the past 30 major championships played in women's golf. However, Lewis could become the first modern professional to win a major championship in the first pro start.
Welcome to the Scoliosis World Lewis and we hope you continue a pain free life and win at the golf!
