Did you know?

Born in Toledo, Ohio, Lewis grew up in The Woodlands, outside Houston, Texas, and attended college at the University of Arkansas. In 2008 as an amateur golfer, Lewis became the first player ever to go 5-0 in a single Curtis Cup (which was contested on the Old Course, St Andrews). She recorded her first LPGA Tour win as an amateur, two years before joining the Tour as a professional. The win was declared unofficial, since rain shortened the event to just one round. Her first official professional win came in 2011, an event that just happened to be a major championship.
