SINGAPORE - American Stacy Lewis won the HSBC Women's Champions for her sixth career LPGA title, holding off South Korea's Na Yeon Choi. Lewis, the 2012 LPGA Player of the Year, shot a 1-under 71 in the final round at Sentosa Golf Club to finish at 15-under 273, a stroke ahead of Choi. Paula Creamer, hampered by a shoulder injury from a car accident last week in Thailand, briefly held a share of the lead early in the day but struggled with her putting on the back nine and faded to a 71 to finish third at 13 under.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Since she won the 2012 ShopRite LPGA Classic, Stacy Lewis has been making history. She was the first U.S. player in 18 years to win LPGA player of the year and only the second American to be No. 1 since the women's world rankings were introduced in 2006. Note the key word here: American. Despite the presence of outstanding players from the United States such as Juli Inkster, Cristie Kerr, and Paula Creamer, Americans had been shut out of the top for quite some time until Lewis, 28, ascended.

She walked the fairways of Saucon Valley Country Club proudly sporting an Arkansas Razorbacks visor, firmly holding the standard with the names of the four practice-round players before the U.S. Women's Open, and showing no ill effects from the back brace she has to wear. One of those players in the group with 13-year-old Grace Desjardins of Malvern along the lush green grass of the Bethlehem club was special - LPGA Tour rookie Stacy Lewis, someone just like her. An eighth grader at St. Norbert's in Paoli with an engaging smile who loves to play golf, Desjardins has worn a brace for three years because of scoliosis, excessive curvature of the spine.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Afflicted with scoliosis as a girl and undergoing surgery at 18 to straighten her spine, Stacy Lewis just hoped to get a taste of what it meant to be a player on the LPGA Tour. Now, just nine years later, with a 4-stroke victory in the ShopRite LPGA Classic that wasn't as close as the margin indicated, Lewis is the top-ranked American in the world rankings. Lewis finished her romp at the Shore on Sunday with an even-par 71, good for a 54-hole score of 12-under 201 over the Bay Course at Seaview Resort.

LANCASTER - Stacy Lewis' birdie putt on the first hole dropped into the cup and a single spectator cried out, "America. " That, of course, was the country of choice among the majority of golf fans causing human gridlock on the cart paths at the Lancaster Country Club early Sunday afternoon. As the greatest hope for the United States in a field flooded with talented South Koreans, Lewis had given herself some early momentum on the final day of the 70th Women's U.S. Open, and she was going to get plenty of support on her up-and-down journey over the next four hours.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Stacy Lewis, the reigning LPGA Tour Player of the Year, has played in eight events this season. She hasn't finished worse than 15th. She's been second three times, including a playoff loss in the first women's major of the season, last month's ANA Inspiration, the former Kraft Nabisco. She's fourth on the money list, and ranked third in the world, after making it to No. 1 in both of the two previous years. Yet she's gone 11 months since winning the last of her 11 professional titles, which includes two majors.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - When Stacy Lewis left the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club after the 2014 ShopRite LPGA Classic, she carried away her second championship trophy in three years, a nice six-figure check, and the title of No. 1 player in the world. She returned Tuesday to Seaview having dropped to No. 3 in the world rankings, but it's not because she has been playing poorly. Indeed, in nine events this year on the LPGA Tour, she has finished in the top 10 seven times and owns three runner-up finishes, including a three-hole playoff loss in the season's first major, the ANA Inspiration.

LANCASTER - The week at Lancaster Country Club was all new for In Gee Chun. She never had played in the U.S. Women's Open. Her history of tournament play in the United States amounted to a few LPGA events earlier this year on the West Coast. She employed a caddie she hadn't used before in competition. For the 20-year-old South Korean, however, she acted as if she had been playing in U.S. majors for years. Her game and her nerves were rock-solid in the final round Sunday as the entire field chased Amy Yang, who had led for much of the weekend and appeared as if she couldn't be caught.

LANCASTER - David Poitevent, Amy Yang's caddie, stood on the 18th green Sunday and peered over Yang like an umpire standing behind a catcher. The two were staring down a 12-foot par putt set up by a misplaced drive and an approach that fell well short of the green. If she made the putt, Yang would force a three-hole playoff with In Gee Chun. If she missed, Yang would finish behind Chun in the U.S. Women's Open at Lancaster Country Club. The putt rolled to the left of the hole. Yang knocked in a bogey moments later.

LANCASTER - For a little more than four hours on Saturday, Amy Yang and Stacy Lewis treated the huge galleries at Lancaster Country Club to some wonderful ball-striking and terrific putting. At times, it almost felt like the two were dueling in a match-play competition. But it wasn't match play. It was the U.S. Women's Open, where anything can happen if you're not completely focused on your own game. Yang and Lewis played to a draw, each carding a 1-under-par 69 with four birdies and three bogeys.

LANCASTER - Saturday is moving day in professional golf. And as the 63 survivors in this 70th U.S. Women's Open made their way to the 10th tee Saturday, each was moving differently. Refreshing themselves with water and snacks, performing superstitions or routine rituals, hurrying, lolling, chatting, focusing, acknowledging the crowd's applause or ignoring it, these golfers at the halfway point revealed a lot about themselves and the game they play. The first to reach the 10th tee, Haruka Morita-Wanyaolu, came through the tunnel that leads there from the ninth green at 10:20 a.m. in a near-sprint.

LANCASTER - Amy Yang turned pro in 2006 and joined the LPGA Tour 2 years later. She's won twice, once earlier this season. So should anyone be too surprised she's the pacesetter at the midway point of the Women's U.S. Open? Only if they haven't been keeping good enough notes. The 25-year-old Korean has finished in the top 10 in this major four times in the past 5 years. That includes a fourth last summer and a second in 2012. In yesterday's second round at Lancaster Country Club, she shot a 4-under-par 66, which left her at 7-under 133 through 36 holes, three ahead of world No. 3 Stacy Lewis, last year's runner-up, and Japan's Shiho Oyama.

The LPGA Tour saw an American resurgence last year. Stacy Lewis led the charge with three tournament victories and recorded the association "hat trick" - capturing honors as player of the year, top money winner and the Vare Trophy for low stroke average. Americans also won three of the five majors, represented by Lexi Thompson (Kraft Nabisco), Michelle Wie (U.S. Women's Open) and Mo Martin (Women's British Open). In all, players from the United States won 13 of the 32 events, their best percentage of tournament victories since 1998.
