It was a fight to the finish for the 2013 Vare Trophy but Stacy Lewis prevailed in the tight-knit race to become the first American since Beth Daniel in 1994 to win the award.
“It’s awesome,” said Lewis. “As Americans we hear about that all the time, it’s been 18 years or it’s been 20 years or whatever it is. I’m just glad to have that kind of checked off the list. We’ve got to get American golf on the map. That’s been the goal and I’m just fortunate I’ve been playing good golf.”
