We have a new #1

Stacy Lewis won the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup yesterday to unseat Yani Tseng as the top female golfer in the world.
"Almost 10 years ago I was going into surgery to put a rod and five screws in my back," Lewis said. "I'm really not supposed to be here."
The new No. 1 birdied four of her last six holes to shoot a final round 8-under-par 64 to win by three strokes over Ai Miyazato. It's her second victory in as many starts on the young LPGA season.

Her victory Sunday was more difficult than it should have been. Stacey fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 66 in the third round which left her two strokes off of the lead — or so she thought.

On the par-3 16th, her caddie appeared to test the conditions of a bunker and viewers called both the Golf Channel and the LPGA. After her round, it was determined her caddie breached Rule 13-4 and she was assessed a two-stroke penalty so her four stroke deficit doubled to four.

Following her win, her caddie expressed a great sense of relief.
"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."
Stacy is only the second American golfer to reach the top position in the Women's World Golf Ranking. Cristie Kerr is the only other American earn the title of No. 1.
