Lewis earns exemption to LPGA State Farm Classic

FAYETTEVILLE — University of Arkansas junior and national champion Stacy Lewis received a sponsor’s exemption to play in the LPGA State Farm Classic it was recently announced. Lewis, who has also received exemptions for the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic and the LPGA Northwest Arkansas Championship presented by John Q. Hammons, fills one of the two sponsor exemption spots in the field. The 32nd LPGA State Farm Classic is slated for Aug. 30-Sept. 2 at Panther Creek Country Club. Lewis’ accomplishments are many. A three-time all-American and first-team all-Southeastern Conference selection, Lewis added the Dinah Shore Trophy to her case this year. She holds nearly every individual record for the Lady Razorbacks and is a part of all of Arkansas’ team records as well. Lewis became the first Lady Razorback to take part in an LPGA event during the 2006 summer when she received an exemption to the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic in Toledo, Ohio. Lewis most recently competed at the 2007 Kraft Nabisco Championship, one of the four major tournaments on the LPGA tour, and was the low amateur in the field finishing tied for fifth overall.
