@Stacy_Lewis Leads U.S. Women's Open

PINEHURST, N.C. -- Former University of Arkansas star Stacy Lewis fired a three-under 67 and has a one-stroke lead after the weather-shortened first round at the U.S. Women's Open.

Lewis is in the clubhouse with a 67, one better than Michelle Wie at 68.  Play was suspended with 30 golfers still on the course Thursday when dangerous weather moved into the area.

Lewis only missed one green and one fairway in the first round and surprised everyone by calling her day ‘easy.’

“I’m very happy,” said Lewis. “It was such an easy day. I played really, really solid, other than I had to make a few par putts, I ran some putts by, got them above the hole. But other than that I didn’t put myself in too bad of spots and made a few birdies, which was nice.”

Lewis started on the back nine and picked up her first two birdies on the par 4’s 14th and 16th holes. Lewis, like many of her female counterparts, watched the men’s event last week and drew inspiration from this year’s champ, Martin Kaymer.

“I liked watching the men’s last week because I think I played a lot -- I like to hit a cut a lot like Kaymer does,” said Lewis. “So on a lot of those holes, it was cool to see the plan I had laid out in my head, he was kind of doing the same thing. So it was nice coming into the week, knowing that my plan was going to work on this golf course.”

Lewis carded her third and final birdie on No. 8 and posted the low round of the day early, before temperatures start soaring with a heat index past 100 degrees.
